    I want to start training for a half marathon, but want to avoid the roads as I will be running in the evening.

    Theres a cemetery near my student house I have just found (hello google earth) and as well as the surrouding grassy areas looks ace for a jog.

    I can see how jogging around a cemetery might be a bit offensive to some people, but its not as if i am running over graves and I will likely not be there when mourners are around.

    I doubt its a problem really, who is going to care? But I thought i would bounce the idea off some people first.

    amuse me

    They won't give a shit, they're all dead.

    Seriously though, I don't see the problem. Unless it's haunted?

    I'm betting the groundspeople will throw you out.

    Hmm ... dunno. I wouldn't mind if I saw you pass by whilst I'm visiting there.

    i used to walk through a graveyard on the way to work before they cordened off the exit (bastards...), but i used to see people walking their dog and jogging through there so you certainly wouldnt be the first. i would do my best to avoid any new plots but if its a fairly old cemetry with old gravestones then i dont think it would be a problem at all.

    As long as you are not naked it will be fine.

    It does seem to be rubbing it in a bit. Hey look at me I am alive and running!!! I guess dancing around a cemetery might be worse.

    Let it be known that if I end up being buried I have no problem with skanky goth types shagging on my grave.

    You could intensify the workout by using the tombstones as hurdles.

    Is he a necromaniac ?!

    In that case it is not appropriate.

    Come and get it cumslingers!

    Michael Jackson might be around now if he'd thought of that. Mysterious ways, very mysterious....

    Depends how rigor-ous he's being. I'm mortified just thinking about it.

    On a vaguely related note, I met a necrophiliac once, he was a strange fellow. We called him Bungle.

    I was getting into Sado-bestio-necrophilia at one point, until I realised I was flogging a dead horse.

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    I doubt it.

    So long as you don't jog across the plots it won't be a problem.
    Sticking to the path best as can, should cause neither alarm, nor offence. Like the OP stated, they're taking the run during a quiet time, so I think they'd be all right, so long as they kept alert.

    Do not stray from the path or the dead WILL eat you.

    I'm a grumpy bastard.

    Nah, no problem -- a cemetery makes up part of my running course. Just stay on the path out of respect, innit.
