Citla - Go! Running Tours City Manager in Mexico City

Runner on the ground - CITLA

Did you know that Mexico City is surrounded by mountains and volcanos? On this tour you will discover landscapes you never imagine existed around a volcano. We will run/hike via hidden and exclusive trails only known by the local runners. “El Nevado de Toluca” volcano is not just a volcano but a volcano rich on history. Some historians and legends say that the ancient Aztecs had these amazing runners called “Painanis” running through the volcano to bring snow for the emperors and also for the “Tlatelolco Market” to make ice cream with cocoa syrup.

This combination of trail run/hiking tour will last around four hours and runners will find themselves running more than 4000 meters over the sea level. The trails will lead runners througha forever green forest until the base of the volcano, where they willexplore the moon and the sun lagoon, each one with a stunning color. After filling our eyes and minds with the great views of the volcano, it is time to fill our stomach with a delicious and well deserved Mexican breakfast with typical dishes from the region. Bring your running shoes and let us take you into an unforgettable adventure near to “El Nevado de Toluca” volcano.
