  • A Guide to Running Routes in Manhattan

    Picture this, you get your running clothes on, lace your shoes up, take that last swig of water, and head out for your run and it is not already over 80 degrees with 80% humidity. Sounds nice huh? Well that time is getting closer as fall approaches. As the temperatures start to drop down (hopefully), students come back, and cross country kicks off, we recognize more and more people will probably be venturing out and beginning to pick up their mileage. You might be hoping to run a road race later this fall, preparing to nail your military PT test, getting your steps in on walks, or looking to start a new healthy hobby with some friends who are back in town. Whatever it is, we want to help you know some of the great running routes and trails that Manhattan, KS has to offer. I will describe some differences in the route surfaces and then show you the location of them through links and some screen captures, also showing the possible distances. Additionally there is MHK P&R Guide here.

    First Impression: This shoe is an awesome and versatile option. The low profile, light weight and short heel-toe drop jump off the bat immediately, which makes it ideal for faster tempo runs, workouts, or also cross-training and lifting at the gym.
