Some of the best jogging routes in Boston are just a short distance from The Ritz-Carlton, Boston Common, including one-, 4.5- and 10-mile options. The hotel concierge can provide running maps for guests. For a quick one-miler, you can start at the hotel’s entrance and follow the path around Boston Common, the oldest public park in America, and through the Boston Public Gardens, winding your way back to the hotel. The 4.5-mile route takes runners up the Commonwealth Avenue mall (a greenway that runs through Boston) toward Fenway Park, the historical baseball stadium home to the Boston Red Sox. If you’re looking for a real workout, the 10-mile run starts at Boston Common, wraps its way around the famous Esplanade along the Charles River, into Cambridge and back to Boston Common, ending at the hotel doorstep.
