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 Belem running route, or want to share your favorite Belem running routes with the rest of the word, Run.com is the place to be.
There is a 2.5 km circuit inside the Universidad Federal do Para, in the norther part of the city, along the banks of the river. It is a flat street that circles the University and a favourite spot for the locals to exercise. The bitumen surface is uneven in places but much better than any of the surrounding streets. About half of the course is shaded by trees, but better to run in the morning, it is always hot in Belem. Do it four times for a good 10k, or get out in the north east end towards the road that exits the University buildings and meanders within the University grounds.
