Running Advent Calendar – Day 21 – Rio de Janerio, Brazil

21 Dec

It’s now Day 21 of my Running Advent Calendar, and there are only 3 more days remaining where I will explore running routes from around the world. Today, I look at a South American city – Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

I have never traveled to any city in South America, but my husband has, and he certainly enjoyed the experience. Rio de Janeiro is known to be one of the most gorgeous cities in the world, with its impressive mountains, beautiful beaches and stunning rainforests.

Running in Rio de Janeiro, particularly along the Leblon to Ipanema Path would provide the opportunity for amazing views of those beaches and mountains.

With Rio hosting both the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Summer Olympics, I’m sure the world’s population will be falling in love with the beauty of this city if they have not already.
