Guide at a Glance
Memphis, Tennessee, United States
Running Tour, Sightseeing
Mel Baddorf is the owner and one of the guides at Rockin’ Running Tours in Memphis, Tennessee. Mel got into fitness after opening his own fitness club and losing 70 pounds. This great personal change led him to a love of fitness that he paired with his love of Memphis and its history. With his two passions combined, Mel started Rockin’ Running Tours: a city tour that is done while running, getting your feet on the ground and really getting to know the city alongside Mel’s informed commentary.
Though the idea behind Rockin’ Running Tours was designed to appeal to a certain level of physical fitness, Mel adjusts the pace to make sure that his tours are inclusive of a wide range of fitness levels. You set the speed that you want to run and your knowledgeable guide try to keep with you, stride for stride, and lead you through Memphis’s historic districts to hear her most amazing stories.
