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 Tarawa running route, or want to share your favorite Tarawa running routes with the rest of the word, Run.com is the place to be.
Running (on a smooth surface such as a road) is possible in Tarawa - the main road from the airport to Betio, about 12 miles. Partly tree lined, but can be exposed to the sun especially on the 2 mile causeway section. Also there is an extensive road network on Kiritimati Island - but again much of this will be in the sun, so use plenty of sunblock. Other islands roads are fairly rough (sand and coral) and will not have seen runners before. Please tell people what you are doing or they may think there is some emergency afoot.
