'''Run the World''' [http://www.runningvacation.com] operates interesting culture/running tours to international destinations, and allows a traveller to run, but still soak in a large part of culture, which is often missed on a marathon trip.

The '''Hash House Harriers''' [http://www.gthhh.com] are a running club that originated among expats in [[South-East Asia]] but has since spread widely, with well over a thousand groups in many countries. They do a weekly hare-and-hounds run, followed by a gathering at a local eatery. There are frequent regional gatherings called "interhashes".

* [[Vancouver/West End|Vancouver]] - a gentle 8km loop around Stanley Park will take you around downtown Vancouver's coastal rain forest, totem poles and the best views of the Coastal Mountains rising out of the sea. For some extra distance, continue down the sea wall around False Creek and into Granville Island. For those who like a companion or a guide around Vancouver, '''executiveRUN'''[http://www.executiverun.ca] provide guided running tour around Downtown Vancouver.

* [[Singapore/Riverside|Singapore]] — the pedestrian friendly pathways will take you past most of Singapore's most famous landmarks including the Merlion, Clarke Quay and the Singapore River.
 +
* [[United States]] —  the [[Boston]], [[New York (city)|New York]] and [[Chicago]] marathons are three of the largest in the country.  Not suprisingly, [[Honolulu]] is a top marathon destination of choice as well, due to [[Hawaii|Hawaii's]] travel appeal.

Of particular interest is the river valley and Rideau Canal where a 10km loop will take you past such national landmarks as the Supreme Court, the Parliament Buildings, the landmark hotel Chateau Laurier, down the Rideau Canal, loop back across the canal on the heritage Pretoria Lift bridge, past the National Gallery of Canada and over the Ottawa River into Hull, Quebec, where you'll run along the river past the Museum of Civilization and finally cross back into Ottawa past the War Museum.
