From 2011 to 2017, Joe Fleenor was traveling from city to city across the U.S. putting on conventions and meetings for his clients. Joe would wake up in these beautiful, iconic cities and head down to the hotel gym where he'd get in a quick run before the long day of windowless conference halls and dried out hotel chicken lunches. It was during one of these treadmill sessions that Joe looked over at his treadmill neighbor who happened to be one of his convention attendees and asked if he'd be up for running outside the following morning to explore the city. Word spread that they'd be running outside the next morning and what started as Joe and a convention attendee running together turned in to 15 people lacing up their sneakers and joining them for the run bright and early.
Over the next few years, Joe would continue the tradition of doing a fun run in whatever city they were in and attendance continued to grow, with groups as large as 70+ people on occasion. It was on his final run while working a convention in his hometown on Nashville that Joe had the vision for Running Tours USA. Joe, a born-and-raised Nashvillian, knew everything about Nashville and loved showcasing his hometown. Those running with him appreciated seeing and hearing about Nashville in ways they weren't going to get anywhere else. A month later he launched Nashville Running Tours and the rest is history. The success that Nashville Running Tours was having led Joe to rebrand and expand his running tour business nationally, thus the formation of Running Tours USA. Officially rebranded and launched in October 2020, Running Tours USA believes that the best way to experience a city is on foot.
