People living in the area of the track always go their for a walk, so if you are running in the time frame of afternoon to night (3:00mo – 12:00pm) you will encounter many walkers that cover the whole pedestrian. but the width of the pedestrian is fairly enough to hold all walkers/runners. except for the north side when the pedestrian gets little smaller you will have to watch for walkers, and dodge them. The Medical city has 5 gates, so watch out will passing those gates as you might find cars going in or out of the gates. if you feel that you are in the need of water you can store your bottle next to any palm tree and it will be still their in your next lap. Or you can find boxes of bottled water left on the side of the pedestrian by nice locals, who do this to help the Runners/Walkers hydrate, Don’t be shy to pick one bottlel but make sure you throw it in one of the recycle bins.
