For an easy trail run in Santdander with great views, we recommend the Panteón del Inglés. This is a trail along a clifftop bluff that features fantastic views of the water and beach below. It’s a narrow dirt path, but the footing is good and is safe for running. There are great views of the Bay of Biscay. The trail starts at Campo de Fútbol Municipal Cueto – Liberto Toca, where there’s also parking. The trail goes west for 2.5 km, passing the clifftop Panteón del Inglés clifftop shrine, ending at the El Bocal public bath. It’s fairly flat.
For a longer run, extend east of the Campo to the Cabo Mayor, which is similar type of terrain to the Panteón del Inglés. It’s 1 km east to the Cabo Mayor lighthouse. Ambitious runners can combine this with the Cabo Menor and our longer waterfront route.
- Panteón del Inglés trail: 5 km out and back; Cabo Mayor adds 2 km out and back, for a total of 7 km
- 116m (383 feet) for full route including Cabo Mayor
