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 Santa Pola running route, or want to share your favorite Santa Pola running routes with the rest of the word, Run.com is the place to be.
The trails and roads around the Santa Pola Lighthouse, just south of the Alicante airport are fabulous, and frequented by many area residents and visitors (like me) alike. Trails and roads can be combined for over 10 kilometers. Some hilly areas too, but no water or restrooms. Since I am usually there in the summer (July and August) I can attest to the intense heat and humidity, but as long as you go in the morning (say, before 9 am) it is bearable. It is great to then cool off at some of the best beaches on the Mediterranean!
