Running In Baroda

MS University Campus Observatory
Sayaji Park
and the Palace Gate

Last week I had an opportunity to visit Baroda to meet some people who are planning to organise a half marathon there.
On my visit to the city after 2 decades, I found it had lots of green lungs and was not as congested and sprawling as many others, with a similar population. Reni George who manages our Baroda running group took me around and familiarized me with the city - historic, educational and industrial.
Needless to say, we ran in many places and saw barely anyone else running, but there were a reasonable number of walkers.

Sayaji Park, Around the Palace Grounds and the MS University campus, are a must do for any runner visiting Baroda or for someone living in Baroda and wanting to start off.
