Pittsburgh Post Gazette: Active types know the best way to see a city is by foot.

​​​LOGO


When Trista asked her very talented sister-in- law, Minna Sponholz, to design the logo for Pittsburgh Running Tours, she asked her to include one of the Three Sisters Bridges. Minna designed a unique logo that incorporates not only the three bridges in that special Aztec Gold, but also Pittsburgh’s three rivers in blue.  And the logo as a whole is a pair of shoelaces, since it is a running company after all.

What is a running tour? 


The simple answer is that a running tour is exactly what it sounds like – a tour you participate in while running.
But it’s really more than that. Running tours are an active way to see a city, whether it’s a new-to-you city or the city where you grew up. The pace is usually kept casual, and there are multiple stops along the route where your guide will tell you about the history of the area and what you’re seeing. Cameras and extra stops for photos are highly encouraged, as is a good attitude and, of course, having fun!

Pittsburgh Running Tours, established by Trista Yerks in 2013, is an active way to explore Pittsburgh for both locals and visitors alike. A self-proclaimed “Pittsburgher by choice”, Trista moved to Pittsburgh in 2012 from Minneapolis and immediately fell in love with the city. Wanting to find a way to share her passion for both running and Pittsburgh with others, she started Pittsburgh Running Tours with one route – North Shore. Since then, Pittsburgh Running Tours has flourished and has over 20 different tours, offered year-round. Custom and private tours are available, as well as special tours offered in partnership with local breweries, yoga instructors, and other tour operators.
