Brasília Residential Districts: Asa Sul

Google Street View

Brasília’s planned residential districts, Asa Norte and Asa Sul, offer some decent opportunities for running. These leafy neighborhoods are adjacent to the Federal District, with long north-south thoroughfares lined with modernist apartment buildings and curvier east-west streets that calm traffic.

Asa Sul is located south of the Jardim Blue Marx/Estação Central. The highlights of running in Asa Sul are Parque Asa Sul, which features 2.5 km of walking paths; and Parque Deck Sul, a lovely waterfront park with great views of the lake and the Ponte das Garças. Parque Deck Sul has cycle paths making for a ~3 km loop and some waterfront boardwalk paths. The best street running is on a path that mainly follows the traffic-calmed road that sits between the DF-002 and the Via L2 Sul.

We’ve also mapped a route of up to 13.5 km as a guideline. This includes a leafy pedestrian path starting near the Estação 108 Sul metro station that goes for 3 km to Parque Asa Sul, a loop of that park and then connecting to Parque Deck Sul. Another option is to do a loop combining the two parks, which would be ~9 km.

Longer Run/Add-Ons: Can be combined with part of our adjacent Monumental Axis route, Parque Cidade, or even Asa Norte for a super long run!
