The mayor of Brazil's biggest city has announced plans to build running tracks in cemeteries.

Sao Paulo's Mayor Jose Serra wants to build circular tracks in 22 of the city's cemeteries, reports SP TV.

He hopes the running tracks, which would surround burial areas, will enable residents to exercise regularly.

But protesters say they do not want to "jog with ghosts" and are calling on the mayor to leave the dead in peace,

A spokesman for the mayor insisted: "This is a very innovative and modern take on city management.

"The people of the city are in need of good activity areas, so this is an amazing option to use up spaces with intelligence."

that is a bizarre concept...

I mean, I get that the land is quiet and could be used for this...but really, for the relatives of those buried there it is not very respectful

Well, I don't really see anything bad about it. But if they are going to touch the cemeteries for that, then I think it would be a problem

Funky. But good for them for keeping the mourners fit.
