One obvious great running destination is the Bill Thorpe Walking Bridge a which-connects the north and south side of the cit y. This former t rain bridge provides great views, and hooks up with the Green on the south side of the city to both the Nashwaak and Northside trails. The Green, along the Saint John River on the South Side of Fredericton, is another fantastic trail that connects to many other trail options throughout the city. For a hilly workout, run the unb Campus
b, where there are some very steep sections that provide good climbs from the base at the engineering/science buildings to the arts buildings at the top of campus. Many of the side streets just off campus where student housing is found are also great for hill training and workouts.
If you’re looking for a long run, check out Lincoln Trail, which stretches from the east end of the city all the way to the airport c. The trail is partly paved and partly loose gravel, but even the rougher sections are well maintained. Odell Park d is also an amazing spot to string together a longer effort, particularly if you’re into trail running. There are lots of different routes within the park. As it’s trail running, there aren’t as many Strava segments within the park vs. the roads, but the paths are well-marked and it’s easy to figure out a simple long run.
Sunshine Gardens Loop e
Winter running in Fredericton can be pretty grim. This neighbourhood is consistently one of the first to get streets cleared by the city. The full loop around is approximately one mile, which is also great for mile repeat workouts (I’m biased on this one as my parents live here, but many running groups use it, especially in winter).
