Run & Visit Rio


We are a tourism agency that offers Running Tour in Rio de Janeiro (Rio City and another cities nearby).

We make registrations for the main races that happens in Rio City and we offer support on the competitions days.

Although we specialize in Running Tour, we also offer private guides for walkers and hikers.

About  Running Tour


It is a type of tourism that has been practiced for many years all over the world (more than 200 organizations) and now also here in Rio de Janeiro. It is a recreational way to practice tourism, running in a relaxed way, at a comfortable pace, and can be practiced in the city (City Running Tours) or on the mountain (Trail Running Tours). At times, it involves walking, quick stops for contemplation and knowing the history, which is, we do not run all the time, but is exclusive for runners.

Our history (words of the founder)


My name is Cláudia Melo. I am a Specialist in Psychomotricity (Education and Clinical) by the Brazilian Institute of Medicine and Rehabilitation (IBMR), Teacher of Physical Education licensed by the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ), Tour Guide by the Integrated Center for Study in Tourism and Hospitality (CIETH) and founder of the Rio Running Tour.


I met and fell in love with running long before I went to school in my childhood. I lived running all the time! The pleasure of playing running was so great that I began to run for other reasons. In this way, I experienced the movement of running from the natural movement, through the childhood games, to the sports technique, experiencing serious training routines to participate in competitions and also initiating students and coaching amateur athletes.


At a certain point in my history, the heavy training routines and medals I won just after crossing the finish line have stopped satisfying me. Reflecting on my experiences with the spontaneous run from my childhood, I understood that my horizon was limited by a finish line, uncreative and that did not motivate me as much as before. I then decided to move away from the routines I was having with the run (I moved away from professional routines too) and went to live a sabbatical year, exploring some places: running.


I really enjoyed that experience: running, meeting people, different cultures, adding new knowledge and values, but ... I had to go back to work! The desire to keep the travel and freedom to run like that made me think a lot: how to add the experience of traveling with work? I decided to go back to my studies and qualify as a tour guide.


Today, I practice running as a means of getting people to discover a new world and I discover a new world with them as well. It goes beyond simply showing the places I already know. This is because I see and live the run.
