Hi! I'm a Runner Looking For Running Trails

I will be staying at the Occidental Grand Xcaret in a few weeks. I'm excited! I'm in the middle of training for a marathon and I would love to run a "long run" while there. Are there running trails? Can I run in xcaret? I would love to get a heads up from a fellow runner. Thanks so much!

Include Me

I am also a runner and would love to hear any information. I usually just throw on my shoes and Ipod and go, but any route or trail information would be great.

The road that runs around the hotels just south of PDC - Paseo Xman-Ha is approximately 6 km. I expect I will be running this route and maybe into the town once i get my bearings.

So. Excited.

I need this to jump start my marathon training for RunOttawa in May!

I'm not a runner, but have been to the OGX. There are lots of winding paths but not sure how they would be for running. There is also a path between the resort and Xcaret Park.
