Charleston's Best Running Tour

Charleston Steeplechase is a great option for runners of all levels who want to learn more about downtown Charleston. Tours cover 3.5 miles of the downtown Charleston area. For those who aren't daily runners, don't worry. There are multiple stops in the historic district to give guests a break and an opportunity to learn about the beautiful city they are running through. 

Running Tour Details

Charleston Steeplechase is a product of two experienced Charleston tour guides who wanted to offer folks a unique way to see the historic district. Guests enjoy a light running pace as they traverse the holy city. The group stops between 10-12 times during the run to allow guides to share the rich history of the Charleston peninsula. Highlights include historic homes, exquisite iron work, churches, parks, and public buildings. The tour takes approximately 1.5 hours to complete as guests enjoy the sites and a low-key work out.

Client Testimonials

  • A Charleston resident suggested a Traveling Ink concierge might be able to help me. It didn’t take long for me to realize that this was one of the best pieces of advice I could have received. My friends thought I was an organizational wizard even though I kept telling them it was Traveling Ink, not me.

  • We so enjoyed our time in Charleston. Thank you for all your insight! I am recommending your services to everyone I know who is traveling to Charleston!

    ~Kathryn C.
  • Traveling Ink planned the three full days we would have in Charleston, how we would get from one place to another, places to eat, and what the costs would be. To add to the challenge, we had to change the day of one of the main attractions because rain had been predicted. They handled all the changes with out missing a step.

    ~ Harriett H.
  • These Charleston pros do a phenomenal job in any setting. Audra was our point person and is a pleasure to work with. She is laid back and can work with any request.
