Fitness Trails

Though Biola does not have traditional 'fitness trails,' we have measured out four routes for your running/jogging pleasure.

NOTE: Some routes do involve parking lots or running alongside roads with cars, so please be careful!

Running Safety

The following tips for runners are adapted from the Road Runners Club of America:


  1. DON’T WEAR HEADPHONES. Use your ears to be aware of your surroundings. Your ears may help you avoid dangers your eyes may miss during evening or early morning runs.
  2. Run against traffic so you can observe approaching automobiles. By facing on-coming traffic, you may be able to react quicker than if it is behind you.
  3. Look both ways before crossing. Be sure the driver of a car acknowledges your right-of-way before crossing in front of a vehicle.
  4. Obey traffic signals.
  5. Carry identification or write your name, phone number, and blood type on the inside sole of your running shoe. Include any medical information.
  6. Always stay alert and aware of what’s going on around you. The more aware you are, the less vulnerable you are.
  7. Carry a cell phone or change for a phone call. Know the locations of public phones along your regular route.
  8. Avoid unlit areas, especially at night.
  9. Wear reflective material if you must run before dawn or after dark. Avoid running on the street when it is dark.
  10. CALL POLICE IMMEDIATELY if something happens to you or someone else, or you notice anyone out of the ordinary. It is important to report incidents immediately
