Places to run – Bow River pathway network

Yesterday afternoon I stepped out for a mid-day run along the Bow River pathway network.

This popular loop has almost no elevation change and there are multiple places to cross the river to change the length of your run.

It is very well maintained through the winter. The city prides itself in having snow cleared off before the bike commuters every morning.

At 3:30 on a workday, the pathways were very quiet.  However in another hour the bike commuters will be fighting for space on the trail too.

Busy road beside the pathway along the south side of the river. Especially when the commuter traffic picks up in the afternoon.
