Get out your jogging shoes in Quebec
I'm not sure why you have to pay to jog around a city. Let alone run around a city. As a long-ago jogger who switched to walking and biking due to knee issues, it ain't my thing.
But if I was a single woman in a city and wanted to go out for a jog, this is a great idea. Quebec Jogging Tours offers guided running tours around the city of Quebec. They're geared for both slow and hard runners, and you can either go in a group or on an individual tour.
Not only will a running tour cover more ground than a traditional city tour, you'll see places not accessible to tour buses. Plus, you'll be in fine form to enjoy the many fine restos of Quebec City. There are currently three tours of QC, ranging from 6-11 km (3.7-6.8 miles) and costing from $30-$68.
The company plans to offer tours in Montreal soon.
