The 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 much more comfortable for running. There is also a free Zumba session in the park every morning. The park is perfect for tourists in Seda Capitol Central, L’Fisher Hotel, and other establishments in the Lacson area.


2. Pana-ad Park and Stadium

Panaad Park and Stadium in Barangay Mansilingan is perfect for runners and athletes. This outdoor fitness spot has an oval race track that hosts 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. It pays to burn some fat and learn new things simultaneously! Visit the tourist booths representing every city and municipality in the province and discover must-see tourist spots in Negros Occidental.



3. Bacolod City New Government Center

Bacolod City New Government Center is a great running route if you live or stay in the city’s eastern part. The government center has a large fountain and a park perfect for joggers. Locals love the area because they can rejuvenate themselves with 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 for locals residing in the city’s southern part. 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 on 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. The tower has a great view overlooking the City of Smiles. Once you reach the top, you can enjoy the fresh morning air.

SM City Bacolod is open daily from 10:00 AM to 9:00 PM.


The routes in this list are just within the city. Today is the perfect time to start on those fitness resolutions!
