Do you enjoy running?

Not sure what would be the best route to burn the most calories? I have calculated a route around downtown Raleigh that is sure to get your blood pumping, and even help you look fit and trim in time for summer .

Before you start your winter run, make sure that you warm up. A good way to get warm is to walk on your tippy toes for a while.

“I enjoy running downtown,” said WPU freshman Melvin Gray. “It’s a great way to see the city.”

Here are two great routes for Peace runners.

1. Destination: Shaw University
Head east on E Peace Street
Turn right onto N. Blount Street
After 1.1 miles, turn left onto E. South Street.

2. Destination: NC Museum of Natural Science
Head west on E. Peace Street
Turn left onto N. Wilmington Street
Turn right onto E. Jones street
