GRASS G's Grass Run Deluxe

Rating: Gold based on 1 review
Distance: 5.55 miles / 8.93 km
Location: Start: N. Orem Soccer Park
1200 N. 800 E. - Orem, UT, US
Attributes: loop, mixed flat & hills, grass
Description: Start out at the North Orem Soccer Park just below the Orem Cemetary at one of the parking areas. Start West and take one lap around the park and then cross 800 East to the church-go behind the church and lap the grass around CVJH and Orchard Elementary, come back to 1200 North and run the grass all the way until it runs out and take a right following the grass up the western edge of the Technology Park until you come up the hill to the Murdock Canal, follow the grass next to the canal back to 800 east and then cross over to the other side of the canal and run back the direction you came from until you come to the end of the technology park, take a right and head north up to 1600 North, take another right and run the grass along 1600 North until you cross the road over to the Cemetary, loop the outside perimeter of the cemetary (don't worry there are no graves if you do it right) and then just drop right back down on to the Soccer Park and finish where you started. This is a great way to get more of a workout in less time and to prevent/get rid of injuries. Try some of it barefoot! There you have it - 5.5 miles, 95 percent grass!

I used to run parts of this route all the time for recovery runs in High School and it's a great place to get a low impact, injury free workout. There is a lot of soft, uneven surfaces to be found if you look around!
