Amman, Jordan

Sport City

The aptly named Sport City is among Amman’s favorite workout hotspots. Not only are there playgrounds, pools, and arenas in this region of the city center, there is a 2 km dirt and asphalt running track through flat and shady woods. Runners can pick up the track near the Ismael Barber Shop in the center of Sport City. There is a parking lot directly across the street. Most runners choose to do laps around the pleasant pedestrian-only path, but if you fancy more variation, there are some other nice sidewalks throughout Sport City.

Special thanks to Crossfit Crescent, Amman Road Runners, and Running Amman for their help with this route.
