When the weather’s good, heading outside for your work out over heading to the gym is a no-brainer.
There’s nothing quite like the feeling of pounding the streets of Bahrain, taking in the sights along your route.
If you’re not sure where to get started – don’t worry, we’ve rounded up six of the best places to run in Bahrain.
Read on for our top picks.
Al Jazayer beach
There are plenty of beaches for running in Bahrain, but if we had to pick one, it would definitely be Al Jazayer. The beach is popular with families so you’ll get to people watch on your jog, and the clear waters are picture-perfect if you’re into documenting all your runs with the hashtag #fitspiration.
Running is instantly made better by great scenery, and you’ll get plenty of that at Andalus Garden. It has plenty of local flowers and palms for you to admire on your jog, and the Islamic architecture of all the buildings is super interesting.
The path around the Amwaj Lagoon is just meant to be run along. With beautiful views of the water, and plenty of coffee shops and cafes for you to nip into when you’re done, residents of Amwaj Islands are really spoiled when it comes to running spots. The Amwaj Marina is also a popular spot, and has previously hosted colour runs.
There’s no better way to see a city than walking (or running) around it, and as one of Bahrain’s most important sites, Bahrain Fort is a great place to start or finish a run. Head here and admire the impressive fort before running up to Karbabad beach for one of the best running routes in Bahrain.
Dohat Arad Park
Dohat Arad Park is an obvious choice for any runner in Bahrain, thanks to its 3.3km walkway – the longest in Bahrain – which runs along the picturesque lake. You’re bound to see plenty of other runners so don’t forget to smile and wave.
Prince Khalifa Bin Salman Causeway
The Prince Khalifa Bin Salman Park is a great place for a quick jog, but if you’re after a longer route, make sure you run along the causeway too. You’ll have fantastic views over the city no matter what time of day (although we love the view at sunset, or at night).
