Running is very inexpensive but very addicting but sometimes running on the same area over and over again could be very tiresome. Do we have to go far to run in some interesting locations? Runners fear not! I’ve compiled a list of the best places to run within Metro Manila based on its walk-ability, safety, accessibility, and post run amenities. Best of all, all these places are free!
#5: Roxas Boulevard, Manila
Roxas Boulevard is one of the best destinations for setting new personal records (PRs) because it is relatively flat and virtually straight course. It is one of the most popular race sites in the Metro and even the country’s premier running event, Milo Marathon, is staged here. This is one the nicest roads to run onto because you have a nice view of the Manila skyline on one side, and the Manila Bay on the other.
- Great place to set PRs.
- Excellent view.
- Ample sidewalks to run onto.
- There are vendors in the area so hydration should not be a problem.
- Could be crowded at times.
- Relatively little shade.
- Food and water options could be limited at certain locations.
- Parking and safety issues.
