Running route in Kyiv

In this article, I decided to pay attention to the capital of Ukraine and tell a little about running Kyiv and its interesting running locations and routes, and how you can diversify your training.

Interesting running locations in Kyiv


  • Distances (highway): 3.95, 4.05, 4.08, 4.14, 4.35, 4.44, 4.48, 4.8, 4.84, 4.92, 5.06, 5.11, 5.12, 5.16, 5.32, 5.37, 5.39, 5.45, 5.66, 5.93, 5.93, 5.077, 5.6 , 6.05, 6.2 km.
  • Surface: tracks, asphalt
  • Terrain: plain

It is a true runner's paradise. An incredibly large space with a coating and relief for every taste. You can use the main paths, or turn to the paths. At VDNG, you can also build a classic 5-km circle – completely asphalted and level, stretching through the territory of the Expo Center and reaching the forest. Thus, you can try both test runs and plan long cross-country races.

Holosiyivsʹkyy Park

  • Distances (highway): 3.00, 3.4, 3.59, 3.79, 3.86 km.
  • Distances (trail): 2.97, 3.56, 3.75, 3.83 km.
  • Surface: tracks, asphalt, soil
  • Terrain: plain, which can be varied with slides of different difficulty

Residents of Holosiiv are also lucky because there is a convenient and pleasant place for running, which combines forest paths and asphalt paths

Trukhaniv Ostriv

  • Distances (highway): 5.03, 5.06, 5.07, 6.00, 6.68, 7.04, 7.98, 8.00, 10.02, 10.07, 10.55 km.
  • Covering: tracks, asphalt, sand
  • Terrain: plain, mountainous

Forests and meadows, lakes, and the Dnipro River - such a landscape awaits runners who have chosen Trukhaniv Island as their place to run. It is here that the most comfortable and natural surface for running is found - dirt paths and grass!

Naberezhna Dnipra

  • Distances (highway): 10.11 km.
  • Covering: asphalt
  • Terrain: plain

Rusanivsʹka Naberezhna

  • Distances (highway): 4.42, 5.05 km.
  • Surface: asphalt, tracks, sand
  • Terrain: plain

Running next to the water brings special pleasure. And there are two bodies of water on this route - the Rusanivsky Canal and a lake. So you can run around the lake in a circle of 2 kilometers with a special surface for running, and if you get bored, move to the Rusanivsky Canal and admire the famous fountains.

Obolonsʹka Naberezhna

  • Distances (highway): 10.00 km.
  • Surface: asphalt tracks
  • Terrain: plain

The route runs completely past the Dnipro and ends in the newly built Natalka Park, where you can do complex strength training on the grass or do yoga after the run. This route is most beautiful in the morning at sunrise. And along the entire route, there are many beaches, so at the end, you can diversify the run by swimming.

Park Peremohy

  • Distances (highway): 5.04 km.
  • Surface: asphalt tracks
  • Terrain: plain

Park Partyzansʹkoyi slavy

Stadiums for jogging

  • Stadium "Athlete"
    The stadium is located almost in the center of the city - in the Pechersk district. There is a special artificial surface on the tracks, which is comfortable for running.
  • "Spartak" Stadium
    "Spartak" stadium is one of the oldest stadiums in the city. It's not that cozy, but if you need a place to run, it's worth a look. The length of the paths with a special coating is 400 m.
  • Stadium "Start"
    Another stadium that can be attributed to the category of veterans, is that it was built back in the 30s of the 20th century. It is very old, but if you need a place to train plus you live in the Lukyanivka area, this is your option.
