Who Am I?

Hi, my name’s Bo, a Dutch-born run addict from Lisbon.

“If you’re not doing what you love you’re wasting your time”. That’s why I founded Run in Portugal. I love Portugal and I love running – either in the city or on the trails, either just for fun or to race.

My passion about the city of Lisbon aligned with the amazing city trail paradise I live in, made me discover the best must-see places of Lisbon while running. And… I want to show them to you!

I speak fluently Portuguese, English, Dutch and Spanish, and if it makes you happy I can even try some German or French!

When I’m not guiding my guests through the beautiful streets of Lisbon or surrounding hills, I continue to collect (ultra)marathon medals around Europe.

Check out some of my milestones:

  • Seville Marathon 2015
  • Piódão Ultra Trail 2015 (53K)
  • Gerês Trail Adventure 2015 (100K in 4 days in a team)
  • But actually, I just run for fun!

Bo Irik


In sum, I’m a run lover from Portugal and me or my running peers are about to show you the best running tours in Lisbon or its surroundings and make your vacation in Portugal unforgettable!

Ready, set…
