Chilean Patagonia has always been drawing millions of travellers from far lands, seeking untouched natural beauty and peace. Since 2012 it has also been attracting professional and amateur runners who engage in annual Patagonian International Marathon, racing through the mountains and glaciers of the area in rather challenging weather conditions.
Participants may choose a race by the distance, ranging from 42 km to 10 km. The course lays in the Providence of Última Esperanza in the area of the Torres del Paine National Park, with adjustments each year. Runners pass Lago Toro, one of the largest lakes in the National Park, and can enjoy some of the spectacular landscapes in this area, finishing at Rio Serrano.
