“I joined an enthusiastic group on the Cultural Diversity maiden running tour. It was a fun-filled romp through Grand Rapids’s ethnic and cultural history. We learned about the original peoples (Hopewell Indians), then the Three Fires Tribes, followed by various European settlers. We also visited downtown religious centers (Catholic, Protestant, Jewish), and even learned about the LGBT community outside one of the area’s prominent gay bars. Really well done, Caroline! I encourage visitors and locals alike to check out these well thought-out tours.”

“Thank you for all the new info and a different look at Grand Rapids. It was nice to see it through the eyes of someone newer to town than me. Looking forward to another tour.”

- Kathy Cepaitis – May 2016

“It was great to meet you on the running tour! The next time I am in Grand Rapids I will sign up for a longer running tour.”

“Participating in GR Running Tours has been AMAZING!!! Thanks to Caroline’s enthusiasm and passion for Grand Rapids history, I have learned an enormous amount about the city after participating in 10+ of her tours and enjoy some excellent running as well! Whether you are coming into town for a visit, a Grand Rapids native, or somewhere in between, you should definitely participate in her tours! We have done tours through Grand Rapids Sport & Social Club, gone on guinea pig “preview” tours, enjoyed the Holiday run in December and worked with Caroline to setup corporate tours through work. Overall, if you haven’t tried out GR Running Tours – run, don’t walk to your nearest tour! (Well, maybe walk – those tours are offered, too!!) 🙂 Thank you GR Running Tours team for your efforts!”
