This course is inside the park of the city (Sabana). The perimeter, with a few deviations, measures approximately 5 kilometers, and you can choose to run on asphalt or on gravel and grass paths. The course features light uphill and downhill tracts, so it is perfect for fartlek, continuous running and also for long or short trainings. It is situated at 1150 meters of altitude, therefore - even if it is in the city - offers fresh air to breathe. No cars are allowed, but it is possible to encounter squirrels and swans in the lake which is in the center of the park. Inside the park there is also the National Stadium, with an athletic synthetic track, ideal for speed trainings. There is also a gym, so it is great for any necessity. There are drinks and fresh fruit vendors, starting from 5:30 am, hour when it is already possible to run. The climate is great all year round, varying between 18 and 25 Celsius degrees in the twelve months. In the "winter" period rains every day, but only in the afternoon, it is then possible to run 365 days per year without changing the way you dress. This country is a real paradise for those who like running and nature.
