Mumbai, India

Mahalaxmi Race Course (South Mumbai)

This is one of the more unique spots for running. For several hours a day, this horse racing track is opened to runners, where one can enjoy a 2.2 km dirt track. It’s quite an experience to run in the vicinity of Derby horses, and there’s a nice green inside the track for a stretch. The track has no admission charge and is open to runners from 5am-9am and 4pm-8pm. Four Seasons Hotel is nearby.

There are other interesting spots in the area: National Sports Club of India, Nehru Centre Art Gallery & Science Center.

Good to combine with Worli Sea Face Run, which is only 2 km from the race course.
