The famous New York Marathon has its final miles in Central Park every year and it's easy to understand why: the park, with a variety of terrain and excellent scenery, is the ultimate runner's dream. With its many paths that range in level of difficulty, Central Park allows a runner to experience clarity and freedom in this picturesque urban oasis. Central Park is the most visited urban park in the United States, with 40 million visitors in 2013, and one of the most filmed locations in the world. The six-mile Outer Loop leads through the entirety of the park—a highlight of which is the sight of the city skyline rising above the wide lawn of Sheep Meadow. The trail can be traversed on foot and bike.
