The Patagonian International Marathon is a road running event that takes place within the Torres del Paine National Park of the Chilean Patagonia. Perhaps the finest national park in South America, Torres del Paine National Park is encompassed by massive glaciers, lagos and grand pillars of granite mountains that rise 2,500 meters above the race route. Each year, the Patagonian International Marathon received worldwide attention, attracting athletes ranging from beginners to veterans from South and North America, Europe, Australia and Africa to participate in this event.
This year, the race enters into its 4th edition on September 26, 2015, covering 4 distances of 60K, 42K, 21K and 10K through winding gravel roads of the park. Whether you are a seasoned marathon runner or you are running your first ever marathon or race, you will be captivated by the majestic panoramic view of the natural landscapes and bring home with you memories of a lifetime. It’s almost a guarantee!
Live your dream. Have a story you can call your own! We will see you in Patagonia!
Each race distance will have different starting points; however, everyone finishes in the same location.
The race route has magical and breathtaking landscapes. Mountains of granite and ice rise more than 2,500 meters above the race route. Multicolored lakes and wildlife are abundant, which include condors, guanacos, foxes, huemul, pumas, and rhea, among others. The surface of the race route is a winding gravel road with a total climb (ascent + descent) of 2,400 meters (for 60k). Another relevant factor that marks the character of the event is high likelihood of strong winds.
The big marathons have you nestled in an urban environment
with impressive towers of concrete and glass.
In Patagonia we do not have large buildings, here our towers are of granite and ice,
and rise over 2,500 m above the race course…
We invite you to live a different experience:
Come feel the power of nature!
