We spent a week exploring Cuba on foot in early March, running some of the country’s historic trails and immersing ourselves with local runners in the city of Santiago and the small seaside town of Baracoa. The goal of our trip was not to make political statements about the current social or political conditions in Cuba, but instead to support Cuban runners and children by donating gear and organizing kids races. Amid a socialist system and economic limitations, we discovered beauty, hope, pride and joy in a land that’s destined for change.
