Runsploring (running + exploring); Runsplorer

"Runsploring” (running + exploring) allows a person to both run and explore, with stops made at interesting locations. A “runsploring” group began in San Francisco on June 13, 2011. “Runsploring” was cited on Twitter on September 18, 2011 and “runsplorers” was cited on Twitter on January 7, 2012.

Other runnsploring groups started in Seoul, Korea (2012); in College Station and Bryan, Texas (2014) and in Austin, Texas (2015).

Love to run?  Love to explore?  Runsploring is the ultimate combination.  This group is aimed at staying active, having fun, being social, and exploring the hidden gems of San Francisco.  Although we like to get a workout, Runsploring is a laid back activity and we don’t take ourselves too seriously.

As a Runsplorer, we pick a starting location and route.  Then we run at a comfortable pace and stop if we come across an amazing view, landmark, or anything else that sparks our interest.  The ultimate goal is to have fun while staying in shape.

Keeping with the portmanteau, they call themselves “Runsplorers.” Runsploring, which began in San Francisco in 2011, is a combination of running and exploring, in which participants pick a starting point and route and run at a comfortable pace and see new parts of the city. Participants stop if they come across an amazing view, landmark or something else that sparks their interest.

Inspired by the original California group, Runsploring Seoul started in September 2012 and has had several organizers.
