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 Zaria running route, or want to share your favorite Zaria running routes with the rest of the word, Run.com is the place to be.
There are nice roads around the campus of Ahmadu Bello University, good for jogging and running, sometimes used by students and faculty of the university. Another (that I haven't tried in full) is to start at the University Staff School and run south on the road to the dam, across the dam, and on a path past farms to the Kufena inselberg (a big, hill-sized chunk of granite), through some pretty savanna countryside. At Kufena, you meet a road that takes you to Basawa village and the main Zaria/Kaduna highway. Unfortunately, this isn't a loop path, so you have to back-track to return to your starting point.
