A hilly road run just outside Bogota, the ascenso de Patios is a favorite of locals seeking a longer run. The route starts from Carrera Septima, between Calles 84 and 85, and follows Carrera 3 (La Calera) northeast to the tollbooth at Patios. Most of the route has a sidewalk and/or shoulder, but the road is shared with cars and cyclists. Because the route is relatively rural, it’s a good idea to run on the weekends when other athletes are out and about. If you don’t have the energy to run the whole route round trip, there is a bus that circles back to the city.
