Bosque de Chapultepec

Park

Finally, the sprawling Bosque de Chapultepec holds much running route potential smack bang in the centre of Mexico City. As the largest park in the Western Hemisphere, it has a ton of open space, some well-kept pathways and perhaps the most intellectually stimulating surrounding sights of all the running spots discussed thus far. If you get tired, you can stop off at the National Anthropology Museum and soak up some culture, or even sprint up the hill to Chapultepec Castle. The running world truly is your oyster here.

Los Dinamos

Park

One of Mexico City‚Äôs most popular weekend getaways is¬†Los Dinamos. This ecological park, to the southeast of the city, is vast ‚Äď in fact, it reaches right up to Mexico State at some points. If you like trail running, rather than pounding the pavements, Los Dinamos is ideal. Its wide-open expanse of forest offers plenty of opportunity to formulate your own routes and make the most of the rough dirt trails already in place.

Nevado de Toluca

Hiking Trail, Natural Feature, Park

If you want a truly jaw dropping view over the surrounding city and valleys as you run, you must head to the spectacular Nevado de Toluca. While you’re adding altitude (and therefore difficulty) to your workout, the reasonably flat surface offered on Mexico’s 4th highest peak makes it more than worth the trip and the effort. Even though this is technically situated in Mexico State, the magnificence of the location and easy access gains it a spot on our guide.

Bosque de Tlalpan

Park, Forest

A renowned running haven within the Mexico City metropolitan area, the Bosque de Tlalpan has several different running tracks to choose from. In fact, out of the five total, you’re sure to find one to suit you, although many recommend Track 4. A 4km route, it will lead you past some of the best sights and sounds of the park, including the zoo. An excellent running spot, it does unfortunately close at 5pm daily.

Parque Alameda

Park

Situated smack bang in the middle of Mexico City, Parque Alameda is a beautiful urban park with a long and strange history. Nowadays, however, the criss-crossing paths make it the ideal spot for a light jog if you’d prefer to stay in the centre of the capital and soak up all the atmosphere that it has to offer. Typically busier on the weekends, with families and travellers making the most of their surroundings, if you want to run you should probably go midweek.
