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 Nasca running route, or want to share your favorite Nasca running routes with the rest of the word, Run.com is the place to be.
Running in the small town of Nasca (Nazca) is advised only early in the morning because of the heat and the traffic. The best course, for those who love to run in open spaces, is definitely to run along the Panamericana Sur. Yes, it is a highway, there are cars, trucks and no shade at all, but it is an amazing long asphalted stretch through the deserted Pampas de Jumana, on the Southern coast of Peru. If you are a long distance runner, you can run from Nasca to the Mirador, which is an iron tower allowing you to admire from its top a couple of the lines and geoglyphs the region is famous for (there is a small fee to pay). The distance is approximately 20k each way. January is the best month.
