The newly reopened Provincial Capitol Lagoon and Park is a great route, especially for runners without a daily running routine. After being closed for almost a year for renovation, the improved pavement is now a lot more comfortable for running. The park is perfect for tourists staying in Seda Capitol Central, L’Fisher Hotel, and other establishments in the Lacson area. There is also a free Zumba session in the park every morning.



2. Pana-ad Park and Stadium

Panaad Park and Stadium in Barangay Mansilingan is a perfect place for runners and athletes. It has an oval race track which is used to host running and athletic events. Eucalyptus trees surrounding the stadium make jogging around the oval a refreshing experience. When you’ve worked up enough of a sweat, take a break by strolling around the sports complex. Visit the tourist booths representing every city and municipality in the province and discover must-see tourist spots in Negros Occidental. It pays to burn some fats and learn new things at the same time!

The park was closed in January 2020 for renovations. For up-to-date news on the renovations, please visit Pana-ad Park and Stadium’s Facebook page.

Bacolod City New Government Center is a great running route if you live or stay in the eastern part of the city. The government center has a large fountain and a park that is perfect for joggers. Locals love the area because they can rejuvenate themselves with some fresh coconut juice after a vigorous run. Coconut juice costs PhP50 and is served by a local vendor.


4. Manville Royale Residential Estates

Manville Royale Residential Estates is a favorite jogging place of locals residing in the southern part of the city. A 66-ha. prime lot located in Barangay Pahanocoy along Araneta Highway, its design was inspired by British royalty. The place also overlooks the Mambukal mountain ranges, which makes it an even more ideal place to jog. Jogging early in the morning is recommended because afternoons and evenings are the busiest times in Araneta Highway.



5. SM City Bacolod

Malls nowadays are not just for shopping, dining, and entertainment. They have also become running routes for people who love to do short runs and go shopping afterward.

SM City Bacolod has become a running place for locals early in the morning when public utility vehicles are not yet plying the roads. Accessibility is the main reason why locals like to run in the area. If you’re looking for a challenge, you can climb the stairs of the nearby Pope John Paul II Tower. Once you reach the top, you can enjoy the fresh morning air. The tower has a great view overlooking the City of Smiles.
