Certainly a life time experience and a dream for most runners, The Ultra Trail Torres del Paine is a unique event organized for the second time by NIGSA and takes place within the amazing Torres del Paine National Park.
The Ultra Trail Torres del Paine second edition takes place on October 3rd & 4th, 2015 in the Chilean Patagonia and features three distances : 50K (31 mi/50 km), 25K (15.5 mi/25 km), and a Vertical Kilometer.
The running routes mainly take place in the lands of the Torres del Paine National Park and Estancia Cerro Paine, where participants witness the wild and unspoiled beauty of Patagonia. The land is rich with unique flora and fauna while impressive mountains of granite and ice rise along the trail route.
The climate in the area is unpredictable with temperatures varying between 5°C / 41° F— 15°C / 59° F and that factor marks the event’s character. On Saturday, October 3rd, the 50K race starts and the next day, Sunday, October 4th, the 25K and the Vertical Kilometer are on.
Ultra Trail Torres del Paine supports and calls for the world’s attention to the conservation of Chilean Patagonia and contributes to the sustainable development of the region.
