The newly renovated path along the Neris River provides a flat, paved, scenic route for a run through the city center. This path could be followed entirely down the portion of the river that flows through the city, creating an over 5 km route. The trail could be followed further to the Zirmunai neighborhood, following Olimpieciu gatve.
Located at the edge of Vilnius, Vingis Park is a green oasis of 162 hectares provides ample running trails. With numerous loop trails on a flat terrain, runners can opt for a 1 km route to 5+ km trail combinations. A run could easily be extended by doing laps or running from the city center.
Running tours are also a popular way to sightsee while getting in a workout. Vilnius Running Tours offers a 3-5km route through old town, a 7-12 km route through old town and its parks, and a 12-20 km run to see all of Vilnius. These routes include some hills, and the 3-5 km option includes a run to the top of the Hill of Three Crosses for an added challenge.
Located in Vilnius’ city center, Bernardine Park is perfect for a short run on paved, flat ground. Bernardine Park covers just nine hectares, and is popular among runners for laps. With trails adding up to about 1.6 km, runners could accomplish a quick workout in between sightseeing. Bernardine Park could also be a good option to warm up prior to a longer run along the path following the Neris River.
