Description

Are you an avid runner planning a trip to Ecuador?  Then come to join me on this 1-day trail running trip in Baños!

Baños is an idyllic little town located in the center of Ecuador, close to the Amazonian region. Famous for its hot springs, waterfalls, mountains and sweeping views, it is the perfect place to enjoy a trail run!

We will begin our trip in the center of Baños, descending a bit before our ascent uphill in a paved region. From there, the terrain will vary throughout the day, sometimes real roads and other times little path in the wilderness, but it will always remain beautiful, as we will be ascending high into the mountainside and running through secluded farmland. We will eventually end our ascent uphill with a view of volcano Tungurahua (5,016 meters) and many other mountains, before running back down over the San Francisco Bridge to town, which too beholds many incredible views. We will be running for approximately 5-7 hours.

This trail is quite demanding, as there are many ascents and changes in terrain, so serious runners and trekkers are encouraged to sign up! I also ask that you pack a small bag with water, snacks, rain jacket, sun cream and headlight you may need during the run!

If you have always wanted to go running in the Ecuadorian Andes, book your trip!
