Running is not only a popular sport but also a great way to shed extra pounds and stay fit. Running routes are aplenty in Pune, with several marathons organized every year. Whether you are a long-distance runner or want to run for staying fit, these Top 10 Running Tracks And Trails In Pune are perfect for putting on those trainers and exploring the surroundings.


1. Joggers Park

Perhaps, the most popular jogging track in Pune, Joggers Park was built in the memory of the freedom fighter Damodar Raoji Galande. The well-maintained 500m track is popular among all age groups. The park also has a dedicated play area for the little ones.


Where: Nilanjali Society, Kalyani Nagar (Get Directions)


2. Pune Race Course

The 3km running track at Pune Race Course is a jogger’s delight. It remains open in the morning from 5 am to 8:30 am and in the evening from 4:30 pm and closes at 7:30 pm. The running track remains closed on race days.


Where: Pune Cantonment (Get Directions)



3. University of Pune Campus

One of the greenest spaces in our city, the University of Campus is open to the public for jogging and strolls. Since it remains deserted in the early mornings and late nights, most people prefer to go there between 6:30 am and 5:00 pm.


Where: Lalit Kala Kendra, Ganeshkhind Rd, Aundh (Get Directions)


4. Hanuman Tekdi

Hanuman Tekdi is known for two things – the elevation and the serenity. Several people choose this trail because of the natural beauty and minimal to zero traffic. Running all the way up to the hill is a really great workout to energize both body and mind. But in case you don’t want to do that, you can take a bike or car ride to the top of the hill and begin running from there. Either way, this is one of the most preferred running trails in Pune.


Where: Shivajinagar (Get Directions)


5. Hirwai Track

The 1.5 km long Hirwai Track was an initiative of the residents of the surrounding area. Now, it has developed into a popular and safe jogging alleyway.
