We've put up a selection of running routes where you may get some fresh air and enjoy the beauty of nature.
1. Sanjay Van
Most runners love this location for a terrific morning run because the city forest's evergreen atmosphere appears to be ideal. This location is surrounded by nature's finest splendour and is also home to a variety of bird species. Locals describe this region as haunted, so a dawn run should be best. Because of safety issues, it's best to run in small groups here. The whole area is around 10 square kilometres.
2. Garden of Lodhi
While running through this lovely landscape, take in the grandeur of our monuments and flower gardens. The area is around 2.2 kilometres long and has a variety of grades. It features many elevations, making your jogging
session a little more challenging - nothing comes simple, right? A run in the evening should enough.
3. Bio-Diversity Park of Aravalli
This one is easily accessible from the Mehrauli Gurgaon Road and includes all you need, including a cycling track, a walking track, bio-reserves, a water tank, and more. Because of the high volume of runners and walkers, this location is also excellent for female runners. The forest is approximately 692 acres in size, which is ample for runners and walkers to have a good run. Trekkers are welcome as well!
4. India Gate
There isn't a running track here, but there is plenty of room to get a crazy adrenaline rush and prepare for a terrific run. This location is always congested, yet it is safe for female runners as well. It's one of the most popular starting points for most Delhi marathons. This one comes highly recommended because it is located in the middle of the city and has a highly inspiring setting with hundreds of people working out early in the morning.
5. Chanakyapuri's Embassy Area
This one, too, lacks a running track, but it provides a suitable environment for an evening jog or an early run. The area boasts concrete roads and well-kept parks; mornings are best for a run because the roads become congested after a while.
6. Malcha Mehal
The Central Ridge Reserve Forest includes Malcha Mehal. This one, like Sanjay Van, has been identified as a haunted location, thus it's normally less popular. However, it does have an unusual 5-kilometer jogging and running track.
7. Faridabad-Gurgaon Road
For a more advanced run, practise on both the uphill and downhill sides of this route. The surrounding nature appears to be ideal for an unusual running location like this one. Early am runs should be OK because there is less traffic and safety is always a priority.
8. Leisure Valley (Gurgaon)
This one is undoubtedly a favourite among Gurgaon locals because it includes everything you've been looking for – A solar-powered cafe, a particular play area for children, a running/jogging track, and, of course, a gorgeous garden with flower beds. What more can we ask for than a 25-acre estate?
9. Forest of Jahanpanah
Saket, Tughlaqabad Extension, Gk, and Alaknanda are all part of this forest. It has one of the areas that offers a challenging but recommended track for running and jogging. Several people can be seen jogging/running along the nearly 7-kilometer track. Keep an eye on your surroundings; you can become lost. The stunning vegetation and fauna will take your breath away.
10. Nehru Park
Put on your running shoes and prepare to cover a lot of ground at Nehru Park. Get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and exercise in an evergreen atmosphere with well-kept lawns while breathing fresh air. You'll find the best motivation here because this park also has an open gym where you'll see a lot of fitness enthusiasts.
11. Noida Stadium
Do you want to prepare for a marathon? There is no finer location than this one. You may expect a smooth run because the running track is primarily gravel and gentle on the legs. It's time to put your heart and soul into an amazing running session at one of the best stadiums.
12. Deer Park
Greenery with a dedicated deer and nilgai area is tucked into the densely populated Hauz Khas district. A fantastic location
for those who have a strong bond with their running shoes. Deer Park in Delhi, as the name suggests, is home to a large number of deer, making it a popular spot for end-of-week picnics. It is an excellent choice for apprentices because there are instructional signboards indicating various sprinting exercises. It is also connected to Hauz Khas District Park and Rose Garden, making it one of Delhi's most important stops.
13. Rai Pithora Garden
The Rai Pithora Garden inundates the Rai Pithora Fort, which was established in the twelfth century by Prithviraj Chauhan, the Chauhan emperor. The Rai Pithora Garden in Malviya Nagar, Delhi, is a standout amongst the most serene settings for a morning run. It's a fantastic spot for running and thinking.
14. Fort Siri
Siri Fort, located in the heart of South Delhi, is one of the most well-known running destinations in the city. This park offers a perfect track that is low-impact on your joints, making it a popular choice among general sprinters. NDMC, which is located in Delhi's "elite class zone," organises several 'Music in the Park' performances on a regular basis. So, music-loving sprinters, stake your claim at this charming and genuine city halt.
15. Swarn Jayanti Park (Japanese Park)
The Delhi Development Authority maintains this magnificent green halt (DDA). Japanese Park is a popular picnic spot in Delhi because of its lush foliage, clean walking paths, and lakes with colourful boats. Enjoy a run with the kids at the end of the week.
16. Raj Ghat
We are all well aware of Rajghat's historical importance. If you go to Rajghat early in the morning, you'll be surprised at how many people in Delhi enjoy staying active. Running here is a calming sensation and a quieting knowledge.
17. Bonta Park
If when you think about jogging, your mind conjures up images of lush vegetation and isolation, here is the place to be. Bonta Park, located near the North Campus, is frequented by joggers and anyone who need to spend quality time and energy in nature's lap.
