DiscOLOvery #19 : Instarunners in Rio

Second biggest city of Brasil, Rio De Janeiro is blessed with an amazing geography, between coast and moutains. Called “Cidade Maravilhosa” or ‘the marvelous city’, Rio is full of great places to discover, for tourism but also sports!

Let’s discover it through the eyes (and Instagram pics) of some of its runners.


Julia is a runner from Rio who shares almost everyday her sports activities, whether it is running or training. Her pictures are great and will show you some very nice landscapes in Brasil!

Her next challenges? Porto Alegre’s half marathon, and Berlin’s marathon in september!
