Best 5 Cities For Running At Night
I love running at night or in the early morning hours before the sun has come up. Cities just have a different feel and vibe at night which I love to explore by running. That being said; here are some of my favorite cities in the world to run in at night.
Miami – As the sun sets, Miami skies burst into bright pinks, purples, and oranges. Ocean Drive comes alive with neon lights, music, dancing, and lots of laughter. Running down the boardwalk in the moonlight makes the ocean glitter and is so absolutely surreal. Event – This year the Electric Run is being hosted in Miami on July 8th.
Las Vegas – The bright lights of the Vegas Strip are most dazzling at night, creating a vibrancy that extends from the streets to outer space. Running Vegas at night is a unique way to experience Sin City, the bright lights, music, and activity. Check out this year’s Vegas Rock n Roll Run on Nov. 10th
London – A city of history and lore. Tower Bridge is more beautiful during the night, be dazzled by the architecture and its lights from the path along the Thames. You won’t regret it running through this vibrant city at night. Event: Life Style Sports Run in the Dark 5K and 10K – November.
New York City – In the city that never sleeps, the best sightseeing happens after the sun goes down. Experience the bright city lights and watch the city come alive during your night run. Be sure to check out New York Road Runners Midnight Run in December.
- Tromso, Norway – Situated above the Polar Circle, the city sees only a few hours of sunlight during winter months which means that you have a great chance of seeing the spectacular green and purple hues of the Northern Lights stretched across the night sky during your stay. The Polar Night Half Marathon takes place in January each year.
And remember if you are running at night make sure you are safe AND seen. Lucid Audio allows you to do this with their brand new HearBand Sport. Check it out here.
