You have many options:
1) ask the hotel staff about well-traveled running routes
2) check out online maps like mapmyrun or usatf's site
3) contact a local running shop or club for fun runs or favorite routes
4) look for a race in the area
5) use google map to create your own route
I've done all of the above and these runs always help me to get the feeling of a new town and are good memories.

One piece of advice: don't stress too much if you run slower or have to go short, traveling puts stress on your body that sometimes can show up in your run.

Enjoy your trip!

Hello, all out there:

I'll be in Salt Lake city, near convention center, for a business trip. My marathon race is coming up soon so I need to continue to train. I just learned that the hotel my boss had us stayed in just closed their fitness room recently. Does anyone know if there's a good running route near convention center/downtown in Salt Lake city? Is it safe to run on the streets in that area early in the morning? Any areas to avoid?

Thanks for any tips!
