COVID-19 Information

Chicago Running Tours & More is now closed for business. The business is available for anyone interested. I will consider all offers. If no interest, I will dissolve it on November 1st, 2020. It has been a terrific “run” since 2013. The business has won “4” Best of Chicago awards and “1” Best tour company in the state of Illinois. I will hand the trophies over to the party who takes over business.

During the Covid down time I set up a new business. It is called “RoadTrip Chicago – Private Tours“. Official launch date is August 2nd, 2020.

A direct link to the new site will soon be available.

I would like to thank everyone for their support and likes over the years.
