Mek’ele Track – Mek’ele, Tigray, Ethiopia

Mek'ele trackIn Northern Ethiopia, you will find the city of Mek’ele.  And in that city, you will find today’s track.   This is a simple dirt track, typical of what you find in this part of the world.  From what I discovered, it gets a lot of use.  Ultramarathoner Scott Jurek wrote about his experience running here one time in 2013, and was amazed at how many people were at the track at sunrise on a Sunday morning.  Certainly not what you find at tracks in the United States!
