    This race is a point-to-point running tour of Costa Rica’s capital of San José. It begins in the cooler climes of Tres Ríos and descends four miles toward Curridabat before cutting towards the main city. In between, it runs through Zapote and through several civic landmarks in San José, such as la Asamblea Legislativa and el Museo del Niño before making a beeline for the metropolitan park of La Sabana. Once there, it runs around the perimeter of the park (approximately 2.4 miles) before finishing inside the verdant park. Along the way, there are aid stations every 1.5-2 miles with friendly volunteers and spectators. The middle 4 miles can be an eyesore if your eyes drift from the majestic mountains in the background to the streets themselves. However, the start and finish are appropriately beautiful areas and will encourage you to block out that middle slog. The finish party was festive, though a bit chaotic given that medals are handed out in a separate tent and not in the finishing cute. Post-race fruit and gallo pinto (rice & beans) give the race a literal flavor all of its own.

    This is a point-to-point, net downhill tour of Costa Rica’s urban capital. It starts in Tres Ríos, crosses Curridabat on its way to San José Centro and ends in the urban park, La Sabana. As a Costa Rican, it was fun to run on roads that are normally filled with cars in peak traffic hours. Finishing in La Sabana was great and made for easy pickup from family members. The course, though net downhill, can be challenging. Costa Rica is warm yearround and the capital nests at around 4,000 feet of elevation. Sea-level dwellers would benefit from arriving a few days early to acclimate.
