Córdoba rests in the basin where the Sierras Chicas foothills meet the Suquía River in north-central Argentina. It is Argentina’s second most populous city, and is most famous for its National University and “Manzana Jesuítica,” a block of architecture conceived by Jesuit missionaries. The highlights of running in Córdoba, Argentina are paths along the Rio Suquía and several nice parks. It’s a sunny, warm climate for running nearly year-round.
While central Córdoba’s large Parque Sarmiento is the top place to run in the city, there are also some good paths along the Rio Suquía, and its neighboring parks: Parque Municipal San Martín, Parque Kempes, and Parque del Chateau. Runners may also enjoy exploring the historic downtown of Córdoba, starting from Plaza San Martín.
Central Córdoba is quite walkable, but buses and taxis are readily available for trips to surrounding areas. If you’re interested in running routes outside Córdoba (such as some of the distant Jesuit estancias), a rental car may be a good option.
