Running tours in Buenos Aires are a fantastic way of seeing the Argentinian capital. The birthplace of Tango, a wine-lover’s paradise and an homage to European architecture of a bygone era, Buenos Aires oozes passion and grandeur. So what better way to take in all that this city has to offer than a guided run?
Once a centre of Spanish colonial power, Argentina has now immersed Italian and German influences to create a unique, quasi-European identity. Nowhere is this more evident than the local Lunfardo slang. This distinctive dialect mixes Italian into Spanish to produce a melodic lilt that seduces the ear, even if you don’t understand it.
Buenos Aires has earned its reputation as an energetic and sexy, yet refined and cultured city. Fiery Tango shows, Latin American art galleries and a never-ending nightlife are hallmarks of the Porteño culture all year round. Notable events on the Buenos Aires cultural calendar include Carnival, Fashion Week, the World Tango Festival, Gay Pride and the Polo Championships, so ask your guide what’s on during your visit.
The largest marathon in the Southern Hemisphere takes place towards the end of September, just as the city is welcoming spring. Whatever season you visit, Buenos Aires offers fantastic running weather, so you can get out for a morning run in the Buenos Aires Ecological Reserve, the adjacent Puerto Madero or the Bosques de Palermo without fear of freezing.
Go! Running tours in Buenos Aires show you all of the most popular sights in the city, as well as secret, off-the-beaten-track routes that only the locals know. So stuff your t-shirts into your shoes and throw them in the suitcase — we’ll take care of the rest.
