What you'll do

We will meet at the Baidi Broken Bridge at 6:30 in the morning, and then we will start to run up to the Baidi, at this time we can see the Baozhu Tower opposite the lake. We passed through the broken bridge, Xuexue, Pinghu Qiuyue and other attractions, and then went out of Baidi and Sudi, and ran across the Sixth Sudi Bridge. When we ran across the last bridge, we could see the Leifeng Tower across the lake.
Baidi: 2 kilometers in total length, Sudi: 2.8 kilometers in total length. The running process takes about one hour and fifteen minutes, starting from the broken bridge and passing by Baidi and Sudi. You can stop taking pictures during the process. You can stop walking if you don't want to run. Running is not for the purpose of fast, but for the purpose of enjoying the beauty. After the run, I will lead you to warm up and stretch.
Run through Baidi, Sudi, paradise on earth, beautiful scenery.
Reminder:
The run covers Baidi and Sudi, and concentrates the best views of the lake.
If the intention is clear, the activity time can be adjusted.
We will meet at the Duan bridge at 6:30am, and then begin to run on the Bai causeway. We will finish 2 km and then be out of the Bai causeway and run on the SU causeway and another 2.8km. Basically the whole course is at least 4.8km and we could see the most beautiful views around the lake.
It will cost us 75 minutes to run on through the two most beautiful causeways and 8 bridges altogether around the West Lake, and 15 minutes to warm up and relax before and after running. If you want to take some pictures of the beautiful lake view during the running, it is absolutely ok. We run for fun, not for fast.

I have been running and writing since elementary school. My running age and writing age have exceeded 30 years. Now I am a writer and marathon runner who lives in Hangzhou. The new book "Little Wind Traveling to Hangzhou" was published by Zhejiang University in February 2017. Has completed more than 40 full marathons and served as the official pacer of multiple marathons (2015 Beijing Marathon & Hangzhou Marathon & Guangzhou Marathon). The best result of the full marathon is 3 hours and 48 minutes.
My daily running route is around West Lake. This route passes Sudi (Huagang Guanyu, Sudi Sixth Bridge, Quyuan Fenghe, Sudi Chunxiao), Baidi (Pinghu Qiuyue, Broken Bridge Residual Snow), Yanggongdi, from 5 kilometers to 12 kilometers or longer. It is an excellent route for running enthusiasts: the route can be freely matched according to customer needs, and the lake and mountains and the lakeside historical landscape can be viewed along the way. I look forward to sharing with you the most beautiful jogging route in the world.
I began to run and write when I was a primary school student. Now I am an author and a runner based in Hangzhou, the one of the most beautiful cities in the world.
My new book is about what I found when I walked in the historical lanes in HZ. As a runner, I have finished more than 40 full marathon and two 100 km ultra trail marathon. My personal best is 3 hours and 48 minutes. I have been the official pacers in several Marathon races in China. My daily running course is around the West Lake. I love to share this world-heritage beautiful route with you.

很棒的体验,按照约定时间一起先来回跑了苏堤和白堤,对于携带行李放置等问题第一时间给予了解决,其次在过程中彦姐对沿途一些历史人物和建筑耐心分享了写书过程中爬梳掌握背后的历史故事,与此同时还分享了身为rbnb一些温馨暖心故事。行程中还被邀请至彦姐小屋享受了亲自泡制的咖啡,最后一道品尝了当地早餐美食。如果希望从历史人文观察和了解这座城市的过去,用脚步丈量杭州,彦姐提供的将是一次不容错过的美好体验!
