With the Old Mutual Two Oceans Marathon just a week away, we thought it would be a good time to ask the fans on our I ♥ Cape Town Facebook page, "What is your favourite jogging route in Cape Town?"

For those training for the marathon, and even those just looking to get some exercise, Cape Town is certainly not short of scenic places to train. Check out a selection of comments below:

Heidi Linden: From Kalk Bay, up Boyes Drive to Muizenberg and back along the concrete path along the sea's edge!!

Lukhanyiso Lucas Bulembu: Upper Kloofnek Street towards Table Mountain #Mmmmmmm Beautiful Cape Town View#

Mandy Benson Briner: From The Pavilion – along the promenade towards Mouille Point – to the hotel school and back ... The best, dodging breaking waves and running through the sprinklers!!
Also. Along Victoria road to Camps Bay then back along kloof road – stunning scenery !

Ben Liebenberg: Up the mountain in St James by Ou Kraal entrance along the contour path. Awesome jog up to the top and back down

Karien Sturmair: Camps Bay to Llandudno back up Camps Bay Drive

Anneline Peters: Kommetjiescarborough – redhill – Blackhill – Masepumilele – Oceanview back to Kommetjie

Mark Roberts: rhodes memorial the old path to plum pudding hill then onto kings blockhouse then fire hut then around the contour path and up to devils peak, back down newlands ravine

Marco Dirks: From Town over the foot bridge by the Cullinan Hotel through Waterfront pass the Cape Grace along the new boardwalk till Granger Bay by the Raddison's pier.

André Hanekom: Surfers Corner in Muizenberg to St James and up Jacob's Ladder (ouch!) onto Old Boys' Drive and back to Muizenberg!!! #blessed

Colleen Coco Piedt: Ooohhh too many to mention: Sea Point Promenade to Camps Bay, Muizenberg along St James walk to Fish Hoek and the avenues of Pinelands close to work – awesome  I love my City xoxo

Andrea Deary: Besides the promenade being nice on a hot day. I enjoy a route through the Maynardville Park to the Constantia Greenbelt up to Kirstenbosch and back down through Bishops court. Enjoyed best at late afternoon so u hit B C at night.

Deanne Herbert: Bakoven to Llandudno and back. 14km of the best views imaginable.

Beni-Legend Kabuluku: Southern suburbs, constantia, bergvliet etc...I like jogging past expensive houses, it gives me motivation lol

Almut Tanja Boye: Blouberg down to Big Bay!! Always Table Mountain in sight......

Corey Erasmus: Kirstenbosch to Cableway via skeleton gorge. Amazing. Lionshead aswell but not really a challenge.

Erez Chanin: Fresnaye to Kloof rd to the end of camps bay then back on Victoria past Clifton then Saunders all the way across the beachfront, round the stadium up glengarrif to ocean view back to Fresnaye. About 10km+ and a run i miss so very much.

Final words

Others clearly had different ideas about what jogging entails:

Bradley Perez No-middleName: i normally run twice around the block and then put the block back under my bed.

Michael Muller: From the lounge to the fridge and back between overs!
