Shilpi posted on 13 March

Whether you have just begun to run or training for a marathon, we’ve got you covered with different types of tracks suited for your running needs. And, if you’re someone who had always wanted to take up running but could not find the right motivation, maybe these spots will make you want to sprint. Here are the 6 trails to make your running experience smoother.

Cubbon Park

Are you even a runner if you haven’t taken a couple of laps at this iconic park? Rightly called the Lung Area of Bangalore, this is definitely the perfect spot for runners. It gives you both trail and road route running options, and if you touch all the exit gates of the park, you can do a good 5km circuit. On any given morning, you can see a lot happen around you - from art installations to heritage buildings, to elderly gentlemen and gossipy housewives, and to dog parks and laughter clubs. We suggest you strap on a pair of ASICS METARIDE, which is built with a seamless curvature on the sole and test your endurance for long runs.

Fitness freaks who love a good run amidst nature, tune yourself out and take your run to the next level with the ASICS GT-2000 7 while the sun slowly sets over the lake. These technologically advanced shoes give you more stability along with Jacquard mesh technology to keep your feet cool and sweat free. And the best part?
