Lace Up And Go Running In Bangalore At These Open Tracks
The running culture has really caught up in Namma Bengaluru. What I love about it is how it keeps growing unlike one of the many fitness trends to hit the city. The reason we Bangaloreans readily adopted this format of exercise is because of the great weather. Yes, summer's can be bad, but we have beautiful parks across the city to retreat to if you’re not keen on hitting the streets. If you haven’t tried running yet, here are the best outdoor running spots in Bangalore that will get you hooked.
Practically the Central Park of Bangalore, this spot of greenery transports you to a different era. The best part about the park is that it’s a no traffic zone until 8 am on weekdays with no traffic all day on Sundays allowing you to do tons of stuff beyond just running. For runners though, it gives you both trail and road route running options. If you touch all the exit gates of the park, you can do a good 5km circuit. You can also make your own route for your longer endurance runs. My favourite thing about this park is its vibrant energy. From art installations to heritage buildings, to elderly gentlemen and gossipy housewives, and to dog parks and laughter clubs – you can see it all happen on any given morning!
Pro-Tip: Perfect for long runs.
Timings: 6 am onwards
Located in the South of Bangalore, Lalbagh is the city’s botanical treasure. This park is a real treat for the eyes with flora dating back centuries. Lalbagh is famous for its exotic flower show which is held twice a year. And for joggers, it’s pure heaven! It has two glass houses, a lake, rocky surfaces for uphill runs and a dedicated path just for runners. You can easily do a 5km loop around the park.
Pro-Tip: Morning and evening runs are both great here.
Timings: 6 am to 9 am and 6 pm to 7 pm is free for runners and fitness enthusiasts.
Wrapped around the Central Business District of the city, Ulsoor Lake is spread over 3 km with a 1.5 run track that offers a great view. There is a fitness circuit created in a small patch of the garden along the trail where you can do strengthening exercises and stretches. And you’ll be surprised how beautiful it is despite being right in the business area. In fact, it leaves you feeling like you’re far away from the hustle and bustle of the city. You can take a boat ride to cool off after your run or take rowing lessons if you feel adventurous.
Pro-Tip: Great for tempo runs and shorter distances. Make sure you catch a sunset run.
Timings: 6 am – 8 pm
