Run to the Paines

Book a reservation now at Chile’s Patagonia Camp–one of the top-ranked yurt eco-lodges in South America—and  compete in the fifth annual Patagonia Camp Cup.

Kicking off on May 23, 2020, Chile’s Patagonia Camp Cup (patagoniacamp.com) may be virtually unknown in the U.S., but the ultrarunning event (and party!) has been growing into a must-do for international-minded trail runners over the past four years—and it only promises to get trendier. After all, it’s the only race of its kind to unfold entirely on private property, a roughly 84,000-acre reserve at the gates of Torres del Paine National Park. With 15K, 25K, and 42K distances, the event has something for everyone, making it worth the trip to Chile just for this event alone. Plus, you stay at one of the coolest eco-lodges on the planet and you can explore classic treks in the park while you’re there (guides included when you stay at Patagonia Camp). After the race, you can try to beat Jason Schlarb’s FKT of the 75.6-mile “W trek” around the base of Torres del Paine in 16 hours, 10 minutes.
