Travel Destinations For Runners Of All Stripes

Mostly D’s: Endorphin Junkie

Extend your runner’s high in these high-octane adventure towns.

Flagstaff, Ariz.

The nearby Grand Canyon boasts just about any heart-pumping, adrenaline-boosting activity you can think of, from whitewater rafting to mountain biking. What will really take your breath away, though, is a sunset over this natural wonder.

Run It

Route: Running the 22-mile rim-to-rim trail is tough—and shouldn’t be taken lightly. That said, it’s worth your time and effort to prepare for this bucket-list run.

Tour: Sign up for an Arizona Trail Tour with AZT Expeditions, a four-day, fully catered trail-running adventure along the canyon’s Kaibab Plateau.

Jackson Hole, Wyo.

From epic black-diamond ski routes to insane wildlife encounters in the Grand Tetons, this rugged mountain town has plenty of ways to make your mother worry. Jackson Hole offers year-round adventure and plenty of opportunities to check off multiple bucket-list items in a very short timeframe.

Run It

Trail: Get a head start by taking the Bridger Gondola to the Wildflower Trail, a ridiculously beautiful 5-mile route. Don’t miss the rustic swing halfway up, which is guaranteed to make you feel like a kid again.

Tour: Jackson Hole serves as a home base for running guru Eric Orton, made famous in Chris McDougall’s Born to Run. Book a trail run with Orton to venture off the beaten path, pick the brain of one of running’s greatest minds and hear some epic stories.

Kailua-Kona, Hawaii

Hawaii’s Big Island has it all—lush rainforests, green sand and super-cool lava tubes. Recover from your epic trail runs with a snorkel off the island’s coast or hike through Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park.

Run It

Trail: The only way to get to Papakolea Beach, known for its unique, sparkling olive-colored sand, is by foot. Luckily, this 2.5-mile trail, though remote, is easy to run.

Race: The Lavaman Sunset 5K takes runners off-road and over the lava fields at sunset—in case it isn’t obvious, you’ll want to Instagram this one.
