Stige Ø is an old junkyard that has been transformed into a recreational area overlooking the inlet of Odense on one side and the man-made channel to Odense harbor on the other. On the way from our meeting-point to the island of Stige we will pass the once very vibrant harbour of Odense. It is slowly being changed to a place where people live and have fun and eat instead of a place where people work.
The beginning of our trail-run is the public parking-place at Stige Ø. From here we run a long the channel to the end of Stige Ø taking the inlet-side back to grass-covered old junkyard. The underlay here is dirt, grass and sand. At the old junkyard we are warmed up for some vertical meters in a hilly terrain with fantastic views over the inlet, the north of Funen and Odense city. Here the ground is dirt and grass. We finish the run where we started at the parking-place with running the fun but hard training-lane.
As you can understand from the description this tour is a bit different from the city-concentrated tours that Go Running Tours Odense offers. But the Scenic Trail Tour is not only fun running and scenic views. Your running guide will also supplement with information about the area, the geography and the changing harbor and city of Odense.
