An 10 km tour with a combination of architecture, history, museums and modern life. This running tour will guarantee you a great running experience full of anecdotes of Cusco City – the historic capital of the Inca empire.
If you want to see the main attractions of Cusco City, this tour is the right one for you. We combine Saqsayhuaman and the City Plaza de Armas, where you see the blend between the Spanish and Inca architecture. Saqsayhuaman Inca fortress build around 900CE is today an Unesco World Heritage sight and runners find themselves surrounded by Inca history and culture. Close to the fortress is the famous “White Christ” that was created in 1945 by a local artist and is now an icon that is overlooking the city of Cusco.
We also run through Downtown Cusco City which is a beautiful site with more than 7 centuries of history all in one place. You will see how the time left its footprints through its streets and trust us, when we say that, it is really amazing watching these changes while we run.
