In celebration of National Preservation Month, the Office of Historic Preservation is offering two Go! Historic SA Guided Running & Walking Tours in May. These tours are a fun way to learn about San Antonio’s historic sites and get fit. At various stops along the approximately 3-mile route, tour guides share the stories behind the buildings, neighborhoods, and parks that make San Antonio unique. This year’s tours feature new routes and guided fitness walking tours in addition to guided runs. Runners and walkers of all abilities are welcome. Participants will be divided into small groups according to experience.
