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 Niamey running route, or want to share your favorite Niamey running routes with the rest of the word, Run.com is the place to be.
Generally, Niamey is an awesome city to walk around, smelling the smells, taking in the neighborhoods, etcetera. Just stay away from the touristy areas(near the river and the major hotels, the Grand Marche and the Petit Marche) if safety is a concern. The area around the Niamey bridge is one of the most dangerous places in the whole country. Niger, like most West African countries, does not have a running culture, so care should be taken in choosing routes.
