As it turns out, a lot of runners like to share their jogs on Instagram, and sports website SportsShoes has listed various cities across the world according to how many of the hashtag #Run[city name] each destination has garnered, in combination with a picture of the city.

 Here’s how they did it:

‘We counted over 1 million hashtags on Instagram, looking at #Run{City} along with its translated counterparts for over 600 cities around the globe. We then analysed the data to reveal which city has the most running pictures posted on the photo-sharing app to crown the most picturesque location for runners,’ the website reads.

In Africa, Lagos came out on top with an astounding more than 15 000 tags reading #RunLagos. Cape Town came in second with more than 7 300 hashtags, followed by Cairo. In fourth and fifth places are #RunDurban and #RunPretoria.
