Every Sunday for the past 9 years Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico has closed its main traffic arteries to cars and hosts the ViaRecreactiva – pedestrians, bicycles, skateboards and rollerblades, runners cover 64 kms. of cityscape. Along the way are activities for children of all ages like arts workshops, chess, sports games as well as shopping in neighboring stores, cafes and dining, and the presence of social service organizations and the Universities. Its been a huge success, and versions exist throughout Latin America – notably in Bogota, Colombia and Santiago de Chile as well as Mexico City. Participants enjoy the opportunity to exercise safely with their families and friends and to see their beautiful city in a fun stressfree manner.
