The iconic Montreal run. Mount Royal defines the city, and this Olmsted-designed park offers numerous trail options, including a run to the summit–accessible from downtown!
A national historic site, the Lachine Canal is a lovely linear park, following the historic canal and its series of locks. A great run is to start at the famous Atwater Market, to its terminus in Lachine.
Montreal has a wonderfully preserved and refurbished old port and old city. There are numerous running options, down to the paths in the Old Port and the “Basin de Horloge”, and passing the famous Notre Dame church.
This is a hilly but rewarding run. Climbing the stairs in front of the iconic St. Joseph's Oratory, and enjoying the residential streets and loop around the summit of Westmount -- one of Montreal's most affluent areas.
Our favorite Montreal residential neighborhoods for running are Westmount, the Town of Mount Royal and Outremont. In the city's east end, the Rosemont-La Petite-Patrie is a classic Montreal neighborhood.
Run the sites of the 1976 Olympic Games and adjacent Maisonneuve Park for a nice 6-7 km route. The adjacent residential neighborhoods of Montreal's east end are also good for running, especially the Rosemont-La Petite-Patri neighborhood
A unique and spectacular route, running from downtown to St. Helen’s Island, site of Montreal’s historic Expo 67. The island is now a large park, with pleasant walking/running paths and lovely views of the St. Lawrence River.
Some of the most scenic running in Montreal. Gorgeous, park-like paths along the St. Lawrence River, with loops around Parc René-Lévesque and the Prom. Père-Marquette. Option to extend further west through several waterfront parks.
A 13.5 mile long path along the St. Lawrence River, from Verdun to Parc René-Lévesque in Lachine. Take in the magnificent views of Lac Saint-Louis and the spectacular Lachine rapids.
