Running Training with Water Views

Love the tranquillity of a run by the water? Moreton Bay is a stunning backdrop to a morning workout, but you don’t have to head bayside to enjoy those water views. The region is dotted with rivers, creeks and water reserves just waiting to be enjoyed. Here’s 4 to get your training started for the J2J!

Warner Lakes, Warner

Nestled in the quiet suburb of Warner, is Warner Lakes, a picturesque water reserve that is a popular running spot for locals. Feeding from Four Mile Creek, runners can ‘run the loops’at Warner Lakes, a distance of approximately 3-5 kilometres, dependent on what pathways you select. For those wanting to add a few additional kilometres, the lake connects with neighbouring parklands with pathways that extend along local creek networks.

Centenary Lakes, Caboolture

Hidden away in Caboolture is the Centenary Lakes 10,000 step paved walking track. This is a great place for people of all fitness standards and is a perfect spot to bring the kids if they accompany you on your run with scooters or bikes. You have the option of mixing up your running session with fitness stations positioned along the track. These allow different exercises to be performed to ensure not one muscle is left out of the action.

Lake Eden, North Lakes

Lake Eden, North Lakes is a popular spot for picnickers and families, it’s also a fantastic backdrop for a run. With a pathway that hugs the circumference of the lake, a distance of approximately 1.6 kilometres, runners can not only enjoy the water views, but also the diversity of wildlife that calls the lake home. Located in close proximity to the local shopping precinct, you can also enjoy a post-run coffee reward!

North Pine River, Petrie

Stretching between John Sweeney Reserve and Youngs Crossing Road, this pathway meanders along the North Pine River, which includes views of the rivers water wildlife and mangroves.
