Sports features dedicated to the sport of  Running, including jogging and sprinting.

How to Map

Since this is a non-physical tag, it should always be combined with some other (physical) tag.
Typically this would be a leisure=track, but there might be other features dedicated to running (e.g. stadium, fitness machine).


A typical oval 400 m track around a ballsport pitch can be mapped with a multipolygon (leisure=track+sport=running).

Tags to use in combination


As various disciplines of athletics can be performed on a running track, an alternative is to tag as
sport=athletics + athletics:running=yes for the oval track, or + athletics:sprint=yes for a short straight track.
