You’ve set your goals for the year, dug into your fitness resolutions and maybe even budgeted for something splurge-worthy like a trip. If you’re like us, now is about the time when you’re figuring out where exactly that trip will be. By now, you know the best way to back for your runcation, but here are our top five runner friendly travel destinations. Which destination are you booking?
1.) Stockholm, Sweden
With its expansive waterfront and lush green midways, Stockholm feels like one giant park. Enjoy a peaceful run on the paths among blossoming trees, quaint side streets and a slew of athletic Swedes.
2.) Asheville, North Carolina
Nestled in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains, Asheville is an eccentric, musical, craft-brewing mecca. It’s also a trail runner’s ideal getaway—enjoy glorious mountain runs with some hoppy, jiggy pit stops in between.
3.) London, England
London houses impressive historical sites, the massive, perfectly cultivated Hyde Park and a passionate running community. Run commuting is huge here, so you’ll fit right in on your morning runs—no one has to know you’re not a local!
4. Iguazu Falls, Argentina
The Iguazu Falls are part of a spectacular river between Argentina and Brazil. Run along the “Devil’s Throat” in Argentina to reach the highest and deepest part of the waterfalls. It may be the most beautiful run of your life!
5. Angor Wat, Cambodia
Unlike the bustling Phnom Penh, Angor Wat is quiet and peaceful (and flat!). Long runs here are tranquil and restorative—a perfect place to for endurance training.
