Thanks to Madrid’s 300+ days of sunshine a year, it’s possible to exercise outside almost year-round. There are plenty of routes you can take for a scenic run, so check out this list if you fancy a jog through Spain’s capital city.
Those wanting to focus on endurance, should run at Casa de Campo. Madrid’s largest green space, this park is well over one thousand hectares. There are plenty of trails that really take you off the beaten path, so make sure to remember how to get back once you’ve started your run and take lots of water with you.
Jogging along Madrid Río is great if you want a little distraction as you run. With loads of people watching, bridges, play areas and even a skate park, you’ll be so visually stimulated you’ll forget you’re doing exercise.
To soak up the energy of the busy city, start your jog on the central, tree-lined part of the boulevard on Paseo del Prado down by train station Atocha. Run up the boulevard admiring the gorgeous architecture, fountains and monuments you’ll pass. The boulevard changes name a few times, into Recoletos and finally Paseo de la Castellana, but just keep going. This route is the perfect way to get some exercise and see the city all at once.
