Situated on the lower reaches of the River Guadalquivir in the southwest of the Iberian Peninsula, Seville is the Capital of Andalusia and Spain’s fourth largest city. Seville boasts one of the largest preserved old towns in Europe. Numerous parks and facilities were built or improved upon for the 1992 Expo. The best running in Seville is all centrally located, with numerous routes that can be combined.
Start with our 8 km ‘runseeing‘ tour, which hits Seville’s historic and architectural highlights. Other favorite places to run in Seville are around the city’s numerous parks and gardens, notably our Parque de María Luisa & Jardin Marillo Tour, Parque Guadaíra, a loop around Alamillo Park and Guadalquivir Garden, Parque Vega de Triana, and Miraflores Park. There are also paths on both along the Guadalquivir River and its tributary. There is some nice running in Infanta Elena Park, a few km east of the center, in Sevilla Este. We also have an extensive running guide to the Costa de la Luz, which is 100 km from Seville, and Córdoba.
Note that Seville has a sunny, Mediterranean climate, but its summers are among the hottest of any major city in Europe, with average highs of 36C. Run early and hydrate! For transport, there’s 1 metro line, a tram system, and buses.
