Long wodded areas. But I suppose it depends on what type of running you want to do.

I used to be the planner/organizer for our elementary school district cross-country meet every October for many years.

My school backed onto a conservation area that had lots of hills, meadows and a wooded area.

Everyone loved our natural setting and the hills really tired the kids out.

It was a big job organizing but I had people with decades of experience helping me and it always ran like clockwork.

I used to practise with my kids and in my 30's and 40's I would usually beat them, but in my 50's the Grade 8's would "take me" most of the time.

Long wooded areas. Cookie cutter houses are boring to look at and it's hard to stay motivated to run. Long wooded areas provide great scenery, more challenging terrain, and are a whole lot more fun. At least that's how I always felt when I chose where I wanted to run.
