Marathon - 42K, 21K and 10K
Since 2012, the Patagonian International Marathon is a marathon that has been held annually in the Torres del Paine National Park. Being interrupted in 2020 as a result of the pandemic, this year it will once again provide an unforgettable experience for sports lovers.
The event takes place in the extreme south of the American continent, in a privileged location in Patagonia, to the east of the great Southern Ice Field and in the surroundings of the Torres del Paine National Park. The distances are 42km (marathon), 21km (half marathon) and 10km.
Trail Running - 50K, 42K, 35K, 21K, 14K and 7K

Yes, you just have to consider that there are cut-off times and you must respect them. In case you fail to meet these schedules, you must get on the vehicle that will close the race.
Assistance points will be approximately every 5 km. In this way, there will be 8 points for the 42km, 5 points for the 21km and 3 points for the 10km.
