Need a quick escape from the bustling cosmopolitan life?

There are 17 reservoirs across the island, and we love running there.

Here are five simple reasons why:

1) Traffic-free run.

Concentrate on your run without have to watch out for oncoming cars. Just focus on the route in front of you, and the music in your earphones.

You are on your own out here!

2) The flat route.

Suitable for faster runs and fartlek training.

4) The inspiration.

Nothing better than open space and tranquility. For bonus views, go running during sunrise or sunset.

Enjoy the untainted air, thanks to the greenery. Catch your breath or cool down under the shade of a tree!
