    Default Running/Training Groups-Santo Domingo

    I am looking for a running group in the Santo Domingo area. I am a 27 year old professional who travels to the DR every 4-6 weeks. I may be spending 3 months there January-March as well. lived in Santo Domingo for a year a few years ago, so I know the city and country pretty well.

    When I am there for a week, I usually just run on the treadmill in my hotel, but if I am there for 3 months, there is no way I will handle just doing theat. I know there must be some people who will be training for 5 and 10Ks this spring.

    Just hit Avenida de la Salud parallel to Avenida Anacaona, behind Parque Mirador Sur. It gets shut off to traffic every evening (not sure what time) and many runners exercise and train there.

    ...which is probably the health equivalent of sitting at home and smoking 40 marlboro.

    Well, I just got here to do some work for two or three weeks, but I will be around in February and March again. I am a casual runner, in the sense that I would like to run three times a week but I am lucky if I fit two. It would be fun to meet fellow expats whilst running (well, perhaps AFTER running) ?
