Grand Rapids Running Tours has evolved from running only – to walking, step-on bus tours and virtual tours. The common theme? A love for everything Grand Rapids…its history, culture, entertainment, vibe, tastes and exciting growth. All of this goodness needs to be shared; and that’s what founder and Chief Tour Ambassador, Caroline Cook envisioned in 2013. She’s a running enthusiast, a natural cheerleader, and a history nut. As a downtown dweller, she blended her two favorite pastimes, exercise and storytelling…and now narrates the fascinating tales of Grand Rapids lore to visitors, locals, conventioneers, clubs and organizations. With a menu of 80 unique, thematically organized tours, Caroline has become a local “go to” for healthy, “burn while you learn” events for all ages and abilities. As a speaker, she shares the same enthusiasm in presentation form by adding some technology magic to the narrative for an exciting combination of verbal/vision. The presentations are evocative, relevant and entertaining.
Run. Walk. Ride. Listen. Love Grand Rapids.
