While good street running is hard to come by in Morocco, one of the better options for a longer jog is the “Meknes Road,” also known as the Route Principale Fez Meknes. This 57 km route leads west from the center of Fez all the way to the city of Meknes. While runners can take on an out and back of any length, the best section of wide sidewalk stretches 5.7 km from the Agdal to the Université Euro-Méditerranéenne de Fez. West of that point, runners will have to rely on the road’s shoulder.
