Runner’s Corner

City Running

Running and walking are considered the most basic and natural of aerobic exercises. Requiring very little equipment, running and walking has been shown to provide numerous health benefits, such as improving the function of the heart and cardiovascular system, maintaining or improving body composition, and helping to increase mental functioning while reducing stress levels.

The Bow River Pathway, located just one block north of Calgary City Centre along the Bow River, provides a variety of routes suited to any level of runner, recreational or competitive, and allows anyone to move their exercise to the great outdoors.
