I am an architect and licensed tour guide offering run tours - a fun way to learn more about local sights while keeping up with your wellness goals. I got bitten by the running bug several years ago and quickly went from "non-runner" to participating in 5Ks to marathons. I am excited to share my knowledge of DC's beautiful architecture with you, in addition to its rich history and culture.

My friends and I really enjoyed our fun running tour with Rich! He's super knowledgable, friendly and considerate. Rich reached out to us to reschedule our run because it was going to rain on the day we supposed to meet and he's super flexible in accommodating our schedule. We learned a lot about the history of the neighborhood and had a fun and relaxing run. I will definitely recommend this tour for anyone who is visiting D.C. and for someone who has been living here (like me) but don't know much about the history of the city.

Richard’s understanding of African American history in DC mixed with architectural motif understanding were a great combination of skills that make him a very unique tour guide. Plus, he is a fit runner but will go at the speed of the individual.
