Running the World with Strava

With the advent of Strava it's great to look back on a catalogue of great runs.

My profile: https://www.strava.com/athletes/5646515 

Hanoi, Vietnam

My first visit to Hanoi, and my longest run to date! A flat marathon, but some challenging logistics during the run.

Hong Kong, China Coast Marathon

I've run the HK Marathon several times, but the China Coast Marathon is far more fun - do it if you get the chance.

Hainan Island, China

I really enjoyed this run, nothing much to see, but I remember feeling good and just kept going.

Munich, Germany

One of those runs that starts out short but ends up a fair bit longer.

Edmonton, Canada

Lovely morning run, just kept going.

Singapore

An early start but always hot and steamy whenever you run in Singapore.

Yosemite, California, USA

A walk with the family to the very big trees.

Sutton Coldfield, UK

I love running in my home town and especially in Sutton Park. This would be a daily run if I ever moved back.

Santa Monica, Los Angeles, USA

This run went north of the pier, but a lovely coastal run close to Venice Beach.

Boston, USA

Very nice run up and down the Charles River, crossing over close to Harvard.

Yangon, Myanmar

I loved Myanmar and this was a great run around the Zoo and Kandawgi Park.

Macau SAR, China

One of my favourite corners of Asia and despite many, many runs in Macau, this is my only Strava run there.

Venice, Italy

No run here, but a long, hot walk with the family.

Shwedagon Pagoda, Yangon

I'm not one to queue up to see the sights, so try to sneak in during early morning runs.

Prague, Czech Republic

I remember this as a pretty cold run, and I paused at 'Parachutists Church' - the refuge of some WWII heroes.

Paris, France

Nice run along the Seine.

Anglesey, Wales

Always a good run in Anglesey, this one alone but often with my brother.

Da Nang, Vietnam

A furnace hot 70.3 run.

Salt Lake City, Utah, USA

Pretty cold morning run, hard to get going when running in 'blocked' roads, but nice to see the City.

Williams, Arizona, USA

Easily my favourite little American town. Delightful run.

San Francisco, USA

This marathon is featured in the race blog - my best run ever.

Santa Barbara, California, USA

I enjoyed a pair of runs along the coast on the last days of our California trip.

Colombo, Sri Lanka

Hot and sticky 70.3 run, but a lovely city with great support. 

New York, USA

Bit of a messy GPS track but past Times Square and into Central Park for the first time.

Vancouver, Canada

Just a walk through a very nice city.

Pleinfeld, Germany

Short pre-race run in a lovely part of the world.

Barcelona, Spain

Nice post-race run in a delightful city.

Death Valley, California, USA

Just a stroll onto Badwater Basin, but mind blowingly hot.

Grand Canyon, Arizona, USA

A breathtaking walk along the Rim Trail.

Roth, Germany

Tough IM run, but great support through this picturesque part of Bavaria.

Gurye, South Korea

A shuffle of an IM run, but with great support, it was great to be part of it.

Washington DC, USA

A lovely run through the Memorials with barely a soul in sight. The best way to see them.

Maine, USA

Delightful run albeit longer than planned after a wrong turn on the way home.

Moulmein, Myanmar

Possibly one of my favourite runs of all time - in and around a town where Kipling  briefly visited and Orwell was stationed.

Rome, Italy

Whenever possible in major cities, I'll try to get an early morning run in to get my bearings for the day ahead.

Hong Kong - Aquathon Race

Nasty run after an even nastier swim. Chung Hom Kok to Quarry Bay via The Twins & Violet Hill.

Cebu, Philippines

Hot and horrible run at Ironman 70.3 Cebu.

Berlin, Germany

Another long walk with family.

Brussels, Belgium

Just a long walk during our stopover from Amsterdam to Paris.

Phuket, Thailand

I've run many times in Phuket, but most were pre-Strava. This one was a decent 70.3 run.

Hong Kong - first Strava run

Nothing to write home about, good to get on the board.

Los Angeles, downtown, USA

An very different early morning view of LA. Not always pleasant to look at.

Beatty, Nevada, USA

A lovely run in a little town just outside Death Valley.

San Luis Obispo, California, USA

Unlikely to return to this lovely part of California, so good to get it on the running map.

Muscat, Oman

One of the most scenic runs I've done in a very special place for us.
