Default Running Through Cemeteries

Wondering if there is any sort of etiquette about this.

There is very large cemetery near my home and it's the easiest way for me to get to some of my favorite running routes. I cut through there on most runs and sometimes I take the long loop around the cemetery. It's just so peaceful there.

It has many paved roads and I run only on those, but sometimes I wonder if I am disrespecting in some way.

What a good question! As long as you stay on the paved road, I don't know why it would be 'disrespectful.' On the other hand, if a lot of people use those roads for running, it may bother some people who have family members buried in the cemetery.

I've ran a 5k here in town that starts and finishes in a very old & large cemetery. At first it creeped me out but it's actually very relaxing, even though I'm running with a large crowd, it's still very peaceful, but you can't help feeling like your being watched.
Personally I wouldn't do it alone, but that's just me. I've seen too many horror flicks and the cemetery is last place I would want to spend any of my "above ground" time at

Thanks for the replies. Glad there was no strong opinions about this so that means I'm probably good to go.
