There’s some decent running in the D.H.A. Phase 8 area near the Marina Club. At the north end is The highlight is Major Khalid Shaheed Park/Creek Park, which is a newer park with 1 km of paths along Korangi Creek, which opens to the Arabian Sea. You could do 2 km there and back laps. It’s also possible to extend the route south, around the golf club to Do Darya, a popular spot with a nice view and restaurant. You would take 16th St. (not scenic, but runnable), and then Sea View Rd. and a road closer to the water to Do Darya Wall and just past there.There are numerous restaurants lining the waterfront in this area.

For an even longer run, it’s possible to continue on Seaview Rd./Sahil Ave. in the DHA Phase 8 Ext. area for 3 km to Captain Farhan Ali Shaheed Park, and then tie into our Clifton Beach  area route. Parts of Seaview are nice than others, but it’s runnable.
