Oaxaca, Mexico

Bosque El Tequio (Sports Park)

This 65-hectare sports park, conveniently located on the northern border of the Oaxaca International Airport, is one of the largest and most accessible parks in the city. The forest here is beloved for its tree lined paths which boast over 7,500 arboreal species. There is a lovely dirt path encircling the green space, where runners can log a circuit of about 5.4 km. It’s a great spot for a flat run in otherwise mountainous Oaxaca — the max altitude is only about 20 meters. Runners can visit the park anytime between 6 am and 6 pm, the shade from the trees is a good way to beat the usual heat. There are frequent races and training runs held in the park, so if you’re interested in running with company, check the local clubs for updates.
