Run The Planet is proud to introduce our new affiliate Run.com, the best running route resource on the web. If you are looking for a new Kuala Lumpur running route, or want to share your favorite Kuala Lumpur running routes with the rest of the word, Run.com is the place to be.
In a hot, humid location like Kuala Lumpur, it's best to concentrate on shorter distance runs in the early morning. Two popular places to do this are the Lake Gardens west of the main train station; and the Ampang Park adjacent to the Petronas Towers (world's tallest buildings). Each site has rubberized tracks to minimize road shock impact, and has their own unique advantages. At the Lake Gardens, you can choose a hilly or nearly flat run of about 4 kilometers around small lakes, past groomed terraces, and through light jungle. Water and bathrooms are available. At the Ampang Park, also known as the Klcc Park, there is a 1300 meter track, with inspriring views of the Petronas Towers. It is a site that is 10 minutes away from many hotels.
