Cleveland, OH

Cleveland may not be on an ocean, but log some miles along Lake Erie and you'll swear it's just as good. Looking for some green instead? Try Rockefeller Park, Shaker Lakes Park, Morgana Run Trail, Sandy Ridge Reservation—all some of the most scenic running locations in the area.

Buffalo, NY

This city might be better known for its snow, but Buffalo scored relatively high for walkability, making it a worthwhile choice for marathon training. (And let's be honest, we kind of love these things about winter running.)

Newark, NJ

Newark is super walkable with a somewhat mild climate. It's just a train ride away from New York but has a smattering of small parks throughout the city so you can still get your nature fix.

Oakland, CA

Oakland scores high for temperature and sunshine (as you probably guessed), making if a perfect place for fairweather runners. Try Strawberry Canyon and the Bay Ridge Trail, or test your trail running in Redwood Regional Park.

Minneapolis, MN

Minneapolis is a sort of two-for-one. Explore the Mississippi River, the Midtown Greenway, or the nearby lakes, or take your training to the other of the Twin Cities, St. Paul, for runs at Summit Avenue and Como Lake.
