With the creeping cold and shorter days, here’s a way the nighttime run becomes a special treat: holiday running! Travel mags and websites are full of lists such as ‘best cities to see holiday lights’, so we did some research to match some of those with some great running routes. This list is a combination of beautiful light displays, festive shopping areas, and done-up neighborhoods. Organized in alphabetical order, by city. A good strategy for finding a pretty holiday run in any city is to search our ‘Fantastic Neighborhoods‘ category. For more, see our list of the best holiday runs in Europe.
