A classic and pleasant running route in Lanzarote is along the coastline from Arrecife to Puerto Del Carmen. There is a great view of the blue Atlantic Ocean all the time, and the route is very easy (same level), although runners should be aware of the heat, especially during the hottest months (June - September). Bring a belt with a bottle of water/sports-drink and supply on the way. Remember sun-cream and a cap on a longer run (avoid the midday sun). The route is on hard surface: concrete, cement-tiles or wooden planks (passing Lanzarote airport). The sea is never more than 100 meters away if you want to cool down! I have run more than 500 kilometers on this route and have enjoyed it every time. If you run from Arrecife to Hotel San Antonio (Puerto Del Carmen) and back you will cover a distance of about 20 kilometers. From Arrecife to the start of the airport area (wooden planks) and back will be about 10 kilometers. No traffic, only cyclist and walkers/runners!
