About the experience

On this trip we will enjoy the beautiful chaos and outstanding cuisine of Mexico City, as well as the breathtaking landscapes that surround it.

While in the city we will visit Xochimilco: the last remnant canals of a water transport and agricultural system built by the Aztecs during the Great Tenochtitlán times, where we will be hosted by Yolcan, a network of local agriculturists, for a one of a kind gastronomic experience. At night we will run through it’s busy streets to grab a beer at the city's best bars and cantinas.

On the next day we will head out to the Xinantecatl Volcano, the 4th highest peak in the country, for a 18km altitude run along its ridges and into its crater, submerging into its ancient, extraterrestrial landscapes.
Back in Mexico City we will engage in a very special post-run yoga and meditation session led by one of Mexico City’s top yoga instructors before a night of Mexican beer, tacos and lucha libre.

On the last day, in Mexico City, we will head out on a 10 km historic sightseeing run, that will take us past by the city's most iconic landmarks and cultural venues.
