Fahad gave us very clear instructions, was a great host, and we saw some beautiful parts of the city we would have never seen. As a fellow runner, it was great to support other athletes! They were accommodating with pace, despite both Fahad and Luis being experienced runners. Highly recommend! Book this experience
I’m an avid runner. Before visiting Oaxaca, I was unable to maintain my running in CDMX due to location and air quality. When I saw OaxSports offering running experiences with Oaxacan athletes in many different settings, I booked this experience immediately.
What this experience isn’t is a tour guide. You’re in it for a nice workout. If you’re expecting this experience to be a jog and talk as a typical tour, then I’d suggest changing the expectations.
Fahad is a volunteer for OaxSports. He speaks great English. Very accommodating and knowledgeable about Oaxaca and its culture. You’re getting a candid perspective regarding this beautiful town.
I ran with an ultra-marathoner named Mario who just finished a 100k. We had a great time. Originally set to run 20k but we ran 26k instead.
This experience made me new friends and a purpose to help support these local athletes build their marks and characters. Come join and make new friends! Book This Experience
So great to talk and run with Fahad and Luis and all of the funds go to a great cause! It is a great experience for all abilities and a great way to see the city. Book This Experience
This is my third experience with the OaxSports. Fahad met me at the local university track. There were already many people out when I arrived. The team had two coaches come out and run warm up drills. Afterwards, I get to run a few intervals with the top athletes around the track. It was tough but a great learning experience. If you’re an avid runner that wants to build a connection with the local Oaxacan athletes, this is the place to do so! Book This Experience
For traveling runners, this is a great way to get connected with local runners and get a good workout in on your trip to Oaxaca. I have to admit, I have not been regularly training before this run so I found the climb up the mountain a bit difficult as I began to lose my breath from the elevation. My quads took a beating going up but got to relax at the top and going down. The views are beautiful in the early morning and Fahad gave me tons of insight into the town’s people and local runner’s lives.
If you like a good variety in your trail run and getting a little dirty, this is for you. Also…BRING TRAIL RUNNING SHOES. Book This Experience
We were looking for a way to get back into running while seeing a different part of Oaxaca – so glad we found this! I hadn’t run this distance in a while but Fahad and Coach Eddi were patient and still kept us moving. Great for serious runners. Definitely check out their other Oaxaca running projects and ways to give back! Book This Experience
What a wonderful way to see the local area, meet Oaxacan athletes and get some hard training miles in. We couldn’t have asked for more from the experience with Fahad and OaxSports. We loved running with Felipe and Roque who are both charming and superb athletes with a bright future. So pleased we are able to support them on the journeys to National and international races. What a fantastic initiative OaxSports have created. Thank you! ? Book This Experience
