Welcome to Argentina and Chile!
This all-inclusive running adventure will show you the beauty of the Andes Mountains!
Every day we will take you on a trail run through mountains and along rivers. These races are designed to challenge you, with the reward of stunning views along the way (Don't worry, we often slow down to take it all in). At the end, you'll earn a medal to celebrate!
The runs are topped off with daily lunches and afternoon activities to explore the best of the iconic Patagonia region.
Vacation Races always treats you right, but Global Adventures takes it up a notch.
Apart from the awesome medal you'll get at the end of the week, you'll also get some great high quality gear and souvenirs that you'll cherish for years to come.
