As a runner and lover of nature, I enjoy making my fitness sessions happen in areas where I can get a solid view of exciting backdrops throughout the world. I’ve taken tips allowing me to run barefoot on the beaches of Costa Rica. I’ve enjoyed the interesting early morning trek down the Las Vegas Strip, dodging late night party crowd returning to their hotels, with the magnificent Las Vegas Hotels in plain view. I’ve even ran in the middle of nowhere in Iceland in complete solace. Running can be artistic in a way, and for me, very therapeutic.
Today I’m going to recap an article I read on Runners World about the best running tours to see street art.
When you think of famous graffiti, New York City has to come to mind.
If you want to bypass all of the tourist crap out there that they sell you in the Big Apple, check out runstreet tours, which is led by running coach Marnie Kunz. Covering up to four miles of the city at a pace of a 10 minute mile, you’ll be able to take in the most awesome murals and street art from famous artists like Hektad, Queen Andrea, and Chen Dongfan.
BlacklisLA was founded by a man named Erik Valiente, who started the initiative to push his running game to the max. Each and every Monday at 10 p.m., over 300 people meet up for an art run that covers multiple works of art across Los Angeles.
