Run The Planet is proud to introduce our new affiliate Run.com, the best running route resource on the web. If you are looking for a new Nuku'alofa running route, or want to share your favorite Nuku'alofa running routes with the rest of the word, Run.com is the place to be.
The Kingdom of Tonga is made up of about 150 small (repeat: small!!) islands, only 30-or-so of which are inhabited. The best running would probably be on the largest island, Tongatapu, which is only about 20 miles long and maybe 8-10 miles wide. The capital, Nuku'alofa, is located on the north side and there are coastal roads around the island that would be ideal for a pleasant run. The other major island, Vava'u, is in the northern group of islands 200 miles from Tongatapu and it, too, has several paved and unpaved roads that will accomodate a runner. Happy running!
