Rosario is the largest city in the central Argentine province of Santa Fe, and the third largest city in Argentina. Located on the Paraná River, Rosario is also a major commercial, industrial, and agricultiral center. It’s a populated, dense city, so it’s helpful to know the best bets for running in Rosario.
The best place to run in Rosario is the 6 km of paths along the Paraná River. There’s also a quite nice ‘runseeing’ tour Distrito Centro, combining the wide, tree-shaded boulevards with their historic architecture with the city’s major park, Parque Independencia. Another nice run is around Parque Alem and the riverside path La Florida beach. In the southeastern part of Rosario, Sur. Regional Park has some dirt paths along the Saladillo River.
The quite decent bus system is a good way to get around Rosario. Runners should also note Rosario’s humid subtropical climate, featuring hot summers. Plan accordingly!
