PATAGONIA INTERNATIONAL MARATHON TOUR - 63KM ULTRA, MARATHON, HALF MARATHON, 10KSeptember
September 2015, the Patagonian International Marathon will take place in Torres del Paine, Chile's most visited National Park.
In parallel with the marathon, runners will also have the option to participate in a 63km ultra, half-marathon and a 10k distance.
2012 was the first year for this marathon, the first ever organised in this magnificent park, which has been a UNESCO Biosphere reserve since 1978, and the ideal destination for active people with a desire for a little more than what city marathons can offer.
Patagonian International Marathon’s mission is to highlight the breathtaking scenery and biodiversity of this UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve and contribute to the sustainable development of Patagonia. The event is being organized according to the “Leave no Trace” principles. Patagonian International Marathonwas founded with the idea to swap the usual glass and concrete setting of most city marathons for mighty cathedrals of granite and ice. The Patagonian International Marathonis your invitation to fully enjoy nature at its best while also helping to protect it!
