Mesmerizing Image of Busy Running Spots All Over the World

As the weather starts to warm, most of us will get outside and start enjoying what nature has to offer after a long and cold winter. Many of us will likely hit the trails across the area to take part in walking, hiking, running, biking, and anything else you can do on a trail. Well, now you can see where the most popular spots are located… not only here, but in 22 cities across the world.

A Statistician at FlowingData sampled public data records from the workout app RunKeeper to map where people run. The result is a series of mesmerizing visualizations. Now, the data may be skewed a little bit because FlowingData only used one app, and many of these cities have marathons which would cause a pile up of runners along the course, but these are pretty cool anyway. Not to mention, they really do highlight the main thoroughfares through the cities. Check these out below. The information found in this article is courtesy of FlowingData and mashable.com
