The Estadio Nacional, the futbol stadium located in the Ñuñoa neighborhood in eastern Santiago, is the athletic center the city and a popular spot for runners. There are always soccer, baseball, and other athletic matches going on in this series of fields, which means there’s plenty of activity to inspire your run. A loop around the block surrounding the stadium is about 3.2km (2 miles) total, but you can vary the length — longer or shorter — by cutting through the paths in the center of the park. These paths are mostly dirt or grass, so it’s a good soft recovery run, although the views of the Andes are just as good as they are elsewhere in the city.
