Sharm El-Sheikh is an Egyptian city on the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula, on the coastal strip along the Red Sea. Known for its beaches and as a world-renowned diving center, Sharm is a significant centre for tourism in Egypt, while also attracting many international conferences and diplomatic meetings. Although running in Sharm El-Sheikh is not terribly popular, there are a couple of decent spots along the water, plus some desert running for the more adventurous.
The best places to run in Sharm El-Sheikh are seafront promenades in along Naama Bay and in the Nabq area. We’ve also recommended some of the best resort area roads for running. F It’s also possible to run on some of the roads around the clusters of resorts. For a taste of desert running, the best option is Ras Muhhamad National Park, located 20 km south of Sharm. More rugged is in the Camp Park area.
Note: This is the desert. Temperatures are 95-100F every day from May-September. Also, use caution on the desert ‘trails’ — they’re rugged and exposed.
