Mexico: Running Around in MazatlanBy Sylvia McNamee -- With the upcoming 10th Annual Puerto Vallarta International Half Marathon this November 4th, there’s never been a better time to talk about running in Puerto Vallarta.

The Puerto Vallarta Half Marathon will also have a 10km and 5km race and is expected to have 1000 participants from all over Mexico and North America. For those wanting to do some sprint training for a strong finish, the Agustin Flores Contreras Sports Center, also known as “The Stadium”, located in the Hotel Zone is a great place to get in some practice runs.

Of course, one of the most popular running routes in Puerto Vallarta is the famous Malecon, where you can enjoy a breathtaking view of Banderas Bay, Los Muertos Beach and the beautiful downtown core while you exercise.
