Keeping fit (running) while travelling

Jump to last reply

Hi all

This is not for me, but for my son who is 14 and a committed middle-distance runner.

Our 3-week trip to Europe slots in between his running events, and we return about 1 week before a significant competition. He'd like to maintain (within reason) his fitness level.

So I'm trying to organise our accommodation to give him access to safe and and handy places to run.

So...
In London I've booked a place round the corner from Hyde Park. I hope this is a good choice.

In Paris we are staying in the Marais district. Would he be able to run along the banks of the Seine? Is this something he could do on his own? Find his way there in the morning, say?

In Switzerland we are staying in Grindelwald. I don't think he'll have trouble there. I'll just point to the nearest mountain and say, off you go! Or is there another option?

We then head to northern Italy, and I'm guessing he'll have to forget his training in Venice! Also going to Verona and Bergamo.

Thanks for any hints or tips.
