The 6th of October district is 30 km west of Cairo, in the Giza (pyramids) area. There are lots of hotels in this area, and some decent spots for an early run. Some suggestions:
- The residential streets around Arkan/Zayed 2000, just inside the 26th of July Corridor.
- Zayed International Park and the Beverly Hills residential area, in the 16th District, south of the Alexandria Desert Rd.
