If you love a challenge while you take in fantastic scenery, you’ll enjoy this 4.3-mile running tour. Highlighted by colorful flowers, leafy trees and spectacular homes, this tour offers a midway stop at The Greystone Mansion, completed in 1929 for $3.1 million.

On September 16, 2008 the Barack Obama’s campaign held a fundraising event at Greystone Mansion. Greystone, a 55-room Tudor-style mansion, is famous for the 1929 murder of oil heir Edward Lawrence “Ned” Doheny Jr. Our tour walks you through the beautiful courtyard, gardens, and Koi pond.

Being Hollywood, many films shot here include “Ghostbusters,” “Batman and Robin,” “What Women Want,” “The Bodyguard,” “Spiderman III” and most recently, the 2007 film “There Will Be Blood” with Daniel Day Lewis. On TV’s “Gilmore Girls,” Greystone Mansion is seen as the exterior of the Chilton Preparatory Academy.

Each participant of our tour will receive a T-Shirt, bottled water, fruit and the best of all, a frosted cupcake.
