In the Dongcheng district between the Second and Third Ring Roads, there’s some decent running in Ditan Park and nearby Liuyin Park.
Ditan Park is a popular spot for exercise among local Beijingers. The park features towering trees and classic Beijing-style red-walled buildings. One can put together a 2-3 km loop around the park’s paths.
For a longer run, it’s 1 km west to Liuyin Park. It’s a ~2 km loop around the park’s small lake.
