Runners will race each other for position as they navigate the unique one-mile (1.6km) route around the picturesque Parque do Povo. The São Paulo skyline will provide a dramatic backdrop to a route that will not only challenge returning runners on the start line, but also offers a unique, fun and exciting race for first-time participants.
