Your Adventure Itinerary

A couple of days before the trip, each participant will be given instructions on how to get to the accommodation facility located in the Condesa area. From here, we will start our epic Night Beer Run route at a friendly pace bar hopping through 4 of the best neighborhoods in Mexico City and from there we will run straight to our Welcome Dinner hub. This route is perfect for acclimatizing to the altitude of Mexico City.

 

Accomodation: Art Deco Style Hotel in the heart of the Condesa.

Dinner included.

We rise early for our day trip to Xochimilco “where the flowers grow”, here we will take a trajinera boat ride that will lead us through the lake canals to the chinampas: traditional farming lake beds, from here we will enjoy a unique yoga and meditation session, overlooking the lake, wetlands river and farming ranges. After this, we will enjoy a delicious farm to table brunch offered by our local hosts.

 

In the evening we will enjoy a relaxing run at UNAM’S main campus, known as Ciudad Universitaria, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

 

We will finish the day with an absolutely fabulous dinner in an atmospheric location in the Roma-Condesa neighborhood.

Breakfast, lunch & dinner included.

On day 3 we run through Mount Tlaloc, a non-active volcano that is part of the Iztaccíhuatl-Popocatepetl National Park, the 9th highest mountain in Mexico. At the top, you will find ruins of an archaeological site where the Aztecs performed ceremonies where they offered sacrifices dedicated to Tlaloc, the god of rain. This route is one of the most rewarding runs in the trip!

 

After spending the day in Mount Tláloc, we will come back to Mexico City to experience a mayan sweat lodge temazcal ceremony led by an authentic nahual. This you will never forget!

 

Accomodation: Art Deco Style Hotel in the HEart of the Condesa.

Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner included.

Nestled in Parque México, the art deco Lindbergh forum is the perfect place to disconnect from the surrounding noise, close your eyes, move your body and breathe deeply.

 

Before the chaos of the city kicks in, we will run through Paseo de la Reforma -the iconic main avenue of the City where we will get to see the most sightseeing lists- straight to Ojo de Agua, one of the nicest and most pleasant restaurants in town for breakfasts, sandwiches and salads. Depart anytime after noon so we can enjoy a farewell brunch together.

 

Breakfast included.
