Running uphill, since you step on the toes, and calf muscles have to maintain appropriate feet position..
Calf raises, tons of them, when you can do 100 in a row, put 40 pounds on your shoulders, when you can do a 100 that way, add weight.
Do stairs. Walk on your toes at home. Run up hill and walk down hill on you toes. Toe raises in the morning. Jump and hit a spot on the wall that is 1 foot (but for most 6 inches) from your hand when standing up arms up and jump up and down and see how many times you can hit it in 2 minutes. Rest 10 minutes and do it again every other day. BUT MAKE SURE YOU STRETCH ALL OVER BEFORE DOING ANY OF THESE.
the best thing i know to do is to have one heavy day a week with low reps (8-10) and then one light day with sets of 100. many people have had great success following this method. use various exercises like standing/seated calf raises or calf raises on the leg press.
i agree with the answers given here. Running up hill and climing stairs is a good exercise. you can do that in the same place by going up and down with the tips of your feet
