Hope you had a nice week. In this post I will map out courses for runs, talk about the distance in miles and kilometers for each course, and what each course offers.
The courses I recommend are nice courses that I have run myself and I want you all to enjoy a quality run at these different courses. These courses are perfect for training for cross country races or road races. I believe these courses will be beneficial in your training.
I guarantee you will be happy you ran at these courses and you will want to come back.
Here are some mapped courses I created at Watkins Park, Old National Pike, and Kemptown Park!
Enjoy! Don’t miss out on a great place to run.
Let’s start off with Watkins Park:
I recommend this course for all runners. This course is a somewhat hilly loop with paved path (some bumps in the paths so be careful), and narrow, but enough room to pass fellow runners or walkers.
- 1.46 miles
- 2.35 Km
- Shorter distance
Another course I recommend is located @ Old National Pike. This course is hilly, grass fields, paved path, wooded trail (soft surface), and is close by water fountains and porta- potties.
- 1.30 miles
- 2.09 Km
- Shorter distance
Another course I recommend is @ Kemptown. This course is hilly, combination of wooded trails, grass, and pavement. This course starts by the Elementary school and finishes close by.
- 3.79 miles
- 6.10 Km
These are several courses I mapped out for all runners.
I believe its important to have an idea of where you are running before starting. Otherwise, you will not be prepared or sure how far you will be running.
This is a problem because you need to maintain a steady pace, but if you don’t know how far you are going, you could loose energy early on in your run, and drop your pace.
I suggest you use http://www.usatf.org/routes/map/ to map out a run, before you run. This site is easy to use. Just enter where you plan to run, and use the draw map + icon to map your course and it will show you each mile and the route to get there.
