Start your morning off with a lovely run through the city, with enough time to change and relax before the programming kicks off.

Each day there will be a 3 mile route and a 6-7 mile route - all very flat, although Mexico City is at 7,000+ feet so that's gonna feel different for most of us! Every day we'll start and end outside the Four Seasons Hotel at 6:30am. Monday and Tuesday we'll be running the same scenic route through the city. Wednesday morning we'll mix it up with a run through the park.

You'll meet Austin + Jeff in the front of the Four Seasons Hotel.

Meet in the courtyard before you take off

Mexico City is absolutely full of mouthwatering tacos, but how do you know where to start exploring?

Well now you don't have to guess.

We've teamed up with Anais Martinez AKA The Curious Mexican, Mexico City's premier food tour guide, to bring a curated taco-crawl to you...and we're picking up the tab for 60 attendees.

It'll be a go-at-your-own-pace, self-guided adventure—with hosts waiting to welcome you at every taqueria. What better way to cement a new connection than a taco-filled stroll?

** This event has a limited capacity. Your RSVP helps confirm taco counts! **


*Veg/Vegan/Gluten Free options will be available

About Xochimilco:

For most people it's easier to say "the boats" but Xochimilco is so much more than that.

 Xochimilco is one of Mexico City's boroughs and within it lies a system of canals within man-made islands called Chinampas that form a complex and unique agricultural landscape. The area was developed since the foundation of Mexico City back in the 1300s and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

So why call it the boats? The boats have always been there, they are called trajineras and were originally used to transport food from Xochimilco to the city. In the early 1900s Xochimilco slowly started attracting tourists and by the 1960s when Mexico hosted its first World Cup the idea of flower decorated trajineras was in full swing.

About Xochimilco:

For most people it's easier to say "the boats" but Xochimilco, our last stop for the Summit on Wednesday October the 27th, is so much more than that.

 Xochimilco is one of Mexico City's boroughs and within it lies a system of canals within man-made islands called Chinampas that form a complex and unique agricultural landscape. The area was developed since the foundation of Mexico City back in the 1300s and is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

We want you to explore Xochimilco beyond the boat ride. So we've put together an amazing experience with the Team at Arca Tierra that includes the traditional boat ride through the canals (drink in hand) plus a visit to their GORGEOUS chinampa where they will host us for a local meal cooked by the family that runs the place.
