When I lived in Rabat, I had a number of nice running routes. My favorite route begins at the covered street in the Medina (next to the kasaba) and tries to follow the route of the city walls. From the covered street, you turn left and run along the outside of the mellah, or the old jewish quarter. You continue past the Tour Hassan Monument / tomb thingy. Continue to the residence of the British Ambassador where the road turns. I then like to continue up the hill on the sidewalk which has a nice view overlooking the river valley. Then I follow the city walls, passing by the royal palace, until I pass the Medina again. You can then run along the outside of the graveyard, next to the ocean, up the hill and you back where you started. The whole thing is maybe 15 kilometers. I was comfortable wearing shorts on all my runs. Although I got some looks and laughs, most of the time people were supportive.
