Xtreme endurance marathon race in Patagonian International Marathon
The 4th edition of the Patagonian International Marathon starts on September 26 and covers four distances of the Ultramarathon 60K (37.2 mi/60 km), the Marathon 42K (26 mi/42 km), the Half Marathon 21K (13 mi/21 km) and the 10K (6.2 mi/10 km) marathon through the winding gravel roads of Torres Del Paine National Park.
The race route takes participants through magical landscapes, around granite mountains, multicolored lakes and an abundance of wildlife such as rhea, condors, foxes, pumas, guanacos and so much more. Each race distance has different starting point but everyone finishes in the same location.
The terrain of the route is a winding gravel road with a total climb (ascent + descent) of 2400 m/ 7874 ft (for 60K). Another good to know factor that also marks the character of the event, is high likelihood of strong winds so whether you are an experienced marathon runner or you’re running your first race, participating in the Patagonian International Marathon is definitely a story you can call your own!!!
