Run Like Revere
This is a track run around the Boston Common. It's just over 1 mile. 3 loops makes a 5k.
As you run Paul Revere guides you and tells you his favorite stories. You may know that his famous midnight ride did not end in success. He never finished. He never said "The British are coming". And he was not alone.
Try your best to beat the competition and climb on the leaderboard. At the end of each loop you'll get an update of your progress. After finishing you will see a breakdown of your loop times.
Take the tour on your phone or your run with your Apple Watch. Both are supported.
