WashU: MapMyRun Shows Fewer Walk, Run in Low-Income Neighborhood Parks

Analysis of running and walking routes by users of the website MapMyRun.com show that most routes at least partially include parks, according to a new study from the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis. But the finding wasn’t true for low-income neighborhoods, where the odds of running in a park were 54 percent lower than in higher-income neighborhoods. The paper was published in Frontiers in Public Health.
