Hi there! Welcome to Fit Cancun Travel.

Fit Cancun is a website for runners who travel and travelers who run.

You’ll find travel tips and trip planning advice for runners vacationing in Cancun; everything from where to run and how to sign up for a local race, to destination marathons and the best spots in the city for every kind of workout.

I choose the word fit because it represents an active lifestyle, and it’s also a tourism industry acronym for “flexible independent travel,” exactly the type of travel that I aim to promote here on the site.

But first, let me introduce myself. My name is Laura Nazimiec, and I created this site. It marries three of my passions: traveling, writing, and running. I’m in my mid-thirties, I live in Cancun and I work for a local real estate company.

I’ve been a runner on and off for more than 10 years. I’m not a competitive runner, instead I’m just your average middle-of-the-pack runner that enjoys traveling to races and the challenge of running long distances.

I started this site back in 2014 because Cancun needed an online running calendar with information for English speakers living and vacationing in the city. Since then, Fit Cancun has grown to include information about running routes and destination races in the greater Cancun area.

Ready to get started? Check out the race calendar or see what’s new on the blog. And don’t forget to sign up for my mailing list! Have a question about running in Cancun? Ask it here
