Q: Do I have to be a top runner to go on a Sight Jogging Dublin tour?
A: Absolutely not. We are not expecting Olympic athletes, our tours are for those who get a kick out of exercise. Participants will need however to be physically fit. Our Sightjogging Dublin guides are experienced joggers, and they will adopt their running speed to your physical condition. When making your booking, please confirm whether you are a beginner, an intermediate or an advanced runner. This will assist us in allocating groups.
Q: What are the advantages of Sight Jogging Dublin over normal sightseeing tours?
A: Where do we start? Our groups are small and intimate and our guides give the personal attention you can’t get with a recorded voice! You get a great first hand view of the city. No need for you to carry maps, we’ve done the research so you don’t have to and we communicate it to you within approximately an hour, leaving you with the confidence to explore your new surroundings afterwards. And hey guess what?? Unlike a lot of the other fun to be held in Dublin, this is good for your health!
Q: How well do the Sight Jogging Dublin guides know Dublin?
A: All our guides are local and besides the well known historical and cultural facts, they will give you little gems of information that you won’t find in a guide book, like the best restaurants at the best price, a good spot for Irish traditional music, the best art museums or where to chill out or listen to Dublin’s up and coming bands.
Q: Do I need to sign a disclaimer?
A: Yes, before the start of your Sight Jogging Dublin tour/as part of our booking process, you will be required to tick a box in our Bookings page indicating acceptance of our Terms and Conditions which include a disclaimer. This is required as some of the tours will pass roads and busy traffic but principally because sight jogging is a physical activity, it can be hazardous. You must certify that you accept all of the risks and will not hold Sightjogging Dublin liable for any eventuality.
Q: How long do Sight Jogging Dublin tours last?
A: The time taken to complete each tour depends on the tour chosen and the pace at which the group goes, but generally each Sight Jogging Dublin tour takes approximately 1 hour.
Q: What do I do with my belongings while running?
A: We encourage sight joggers to bring with them the bare essentials which they can carry personally. Our guides are not camels and will be unable to carry items for you.
Q: Can I join a group?
A: If you would like to run with a group, please tell us this within your booking form on the Bookings page. We will then endeavour to include you if possible into a group. This lets you not only get to know people from all over the world, but also save even more money with the cheaper group rates. For some people this will not be possible due to the times they wish to run or the tours they wish to run.
Q: How fit do I have to be for the tour?
A: The basic requirement for the tours is of course that you are fit and well on the day. You control the pace and if necessary, the breaks when you run. Your Sightjogging Dublin guide adjusts to your running style. Part of the reason for your run is to contribute to your well being, not for making you breathless.
Q :Can I bring a bodyguard?
A: If you are a celebrity, you will be aware that Dublin is a relaxed place where celebrities can go about their daily business hassle free. That said, if you wish to bring a bodyguard, we are happy to accommodate you and if it is an early morning tour you want, that’s no problem.
