    This running track has an unusual shape because it surrounds a cricket oval.

    Trace by:

    Location: Ottawa, Canada

    Distance: 3.39 km

    I wanted to try the Shanghai river run again, on a different body of water. Looking at the trace online, I drew it on a tourist map of Ottawa, following the curves of the Ottawa River below/behind the Parliament buildings, and back along Wellington Street, which passes in front of the same buildings.

    Location: Vancouver, BC

    Distance: 2.74 km

    The original track describes the cemetery as being laid out like a city, so I thought it would be amusing to shift the track just a few blocks from the original. The scale proved to be quite similar. I chose not to cut across private property, but use city streets and alleys. This trace was…
