Running is possibly the most popular and most practiced sport in the world. It has nothing to do with rushing to get to the office or to catch the bus. Running requires certain discipline and conditions, such as suitable sports gear, at least acceptable physical shape and somewhere to practice it without pollution filling your lungs.
Tenerife is one of the best places in the world for this sport. This is no bluff. You can choose between high mountain tracks around Mount Teide, or by the sea, near the island’s many beaches and the refreshing breeze, not to mention towns and cities with excellent parks where the air is purified thanks to the plants and trees.
For urban running, we would recommend La Granja Park in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, La Vega Park in La Laguna or the Taoro Park in Puerto de la Cruz. If what you enjoy is competing, the calendar and variety of races on the island is overwhelming.
