Love running? Sight-running, the new trend in tourism, will allow you to see all of Mexico City’s top sights in just three hours. Your local guide and running partner Citla will lead you through various neighborhoods to show you all that Mexico City had to offer all while getting a run in. You will see the city’s diverse architecture, history, vibrant culture, and people’s daily modern lives. Main attractions like Chapultepec Park and Reforma Avenue can take a very long time to see when you’re just walking, but when you’re on a run you can easily check these two off your list. Next, you’ll run through downtown Mexico City, which is home to 7 centuries of historic buildings and artifacts. Even though this is a run, you will have time to stop for breaks and to realy take in the sights. Don’t forget your running shoes because this tour is a fun and rewarding way to see the city, and for avid runner to get in that daily workout.
Growing up in the unique Mexico City, I was constantly surrounded by such a diverse and bold culture and was always fascinated with people. I loved spending my time people-watching or watching TV shows that highlighted people’s unique lives. I loved watching shows about street performers or artisans. My fascination with people has been instilled in me since a young age.
I studied international business in college and got a standard job after college. Eventually, the business I worked for closed down. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise, because leaving my job helped me find my true passion. With plenty of free time, I decided to start running. I was hooked immediately. It was great exercise and a great way to explore my city. One day I came across an article about sight-running, which is when you do a tour of a city while running instead of walking, and how it was the new trend in tourism. It all just clicked for me, and I decided to start a sight-running tourism business. It combined my new passion for running with my childhood fascination with people and culture. I am never happier than when I am running around Mexico City showing people all that it has to offer.
