Leavenworth has great roads, trails, and weather for running most of the year. Even in winter the city clears the sidewalks and the sun usually comes out in the afternoon. There are several events in town or very close, from mud runs to marathons and everything in between. Scroll down for information on routes, trails, and events.
Most of the year you can run outside in Leavenworth but if you're in town and weather is just too wet, cold, or slippery to run there are two gyms in town where you can get a day pass and have a good treadmill workout. Club West is a larger, older, small town gym with several machines and lots of weights. Balance Point is a smaller, modern gym attached to Mt. Stuart Physical Therapy with great equipment and lots of yoga, spinning, and fitness classes.

We have beautiful mountains and trails all around Leavenworth. But be ready for a good climb; the mountains are pretty rugged and steep and you'll get quite a workout!
