Here are some recommended running or walking routes from the
top runner travel guide book
 Fun on Foot in America's Cities:

Discovery Park to Downtown
Do a loop through Seattle’s Discovery Park, with its attractive nature trails,
and then follow the shore of Puget Sound, through Elliott Bay Park and Myrtle
Edwards Park back to downtown.  There are outstanding views of the city, its
docks, its surrounds, and Puget Sound, on the way.  On arriving downtown,
follow the waterfront trail to the aquarium and Pike Place Market. Great
running or walking throughout!

Green Lake and Fremont
Run or walk a loop of attractive Green Lake [map], the most popular Seattle
running route.  Connect via Woodland Park and street sidewalks to Fremont

, one of Seattle’s most lively restaurant, shop-browsing, and
entertainment areas.  There are some excellent wind-down places here.  
You can catch a bus back downtown or, if you want to do another three-to-
four miles on-foot, walk or run via the western edge of Lake Union.

The Arboretum and Lake Washington
Follow the Arboretum Waterfront Trail through unique wetlands terrain, pass
through the impressive Washington Park Arboretum
[map], and then connect
with the Lake Washington shore trail.  This is an extremely attractive Seattle
running route, with minimal intrusions from automobile or bicycle traffic.

Burke-Gilman Trail to Ballard
Enjoy running or walking a quality urban trail, traverse the University of
Washington campus
[map], follow the north shore of Lake Union and the
Lake Washington Ship Canal, and see popular Gas Works Park.  End in the
historic and character-filled Ballard area
[map], handy to attractions including
the Chittenden Locks and Fish Ladder.
