If you are like me and wake up with lots of energy, then there is nothing better than getting up with sunrise and popping to Central Park to have a morning wake up jog. Remember that New York can be freezing in the winter months so it's probably best left until the summer. You won't be the only one who will be there so get your gear on and off you go.
Best if you stay in a hotel nearby central park
A running track (1.58 miles) follows the edge of the reservoir (now officially the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis Reservoir) and lets you experience the same views as Dustin Hoffman in the opening sequences of Marathon Man - the skyline of buildings that surround the park.
No worries about muggers - forget those scenes from Death Wish - you'll always have the company of other runners, even in the snow.
The reservoir is located in Central Park between 86th and 96th
