Now bid me run, and I will strive with things impossible - Shakespeare

TELEGRAPH HILL in San Francisco wasn’t called Loma Alta — “High Hill” — for nothing. This thought occupied my mind on a recent afternoon as I ran up the Greenwich Steps, a crooked line of stairs climbing the eastern side of the hill, guided by Jim Vernon of American Running Guides, which is based in San Francisco.
The steep slope as it rises to Coit Tower is well documented in noir films like Hitchcock’s “Vertigo” (look out the window of James Stewart’s apartment after he rescues the sexy Kim Novak) and “The House on Telegraph Hill” (it’s where Valentina Cortese loses control of her car after her brake lines have been cut).
The usual city tours center on the history…
“Running on my own is sort of monotonous and requires too much thought and planning,” said Ms. Strelsky Woodson, who ended up on the Golden Gate Bridge. “On the tour, I got to let the guide lead and just take in the experience — the route was beautiful, tough and had lots of San Francisco landmarks. Plus, you get a great picture to take home.”
If you’re in a running rut or looking to rediscover yourself through running or just want a little “me time,” the following running camps and retreats will help you find what you’re looking for.

If you are visiting a new city, chances are you'll pack your trainers with the intention to hit the streets! But where is the best place to run? Sure you could check Strava heat maps, read local blogs, or ask your hotel concierge, but wouldn't it be more enjoyable to run with someone who lives there? A local runner can show you their favourite route, which is often somewhere you wouldn't find running on your own. Not only that, a local can tell you what else you should do and try while visiting the city. Run With Me is the gateway to a great local running experience.
