Description:

On this run, we will traverse an incredible Inca highway consisting of over 125 km (77.7 mi) of ancient roads. The activities include trail running, enjoying the tranquility of nature, and exploring two amazing and enigmatic archaeological sites. We will cross through highly varied terrain of diverse ecosystems: from majestic rivers at 1500 meters above sea level (4921 feet above sea level) to high mountain passes at 4650 masl (15,256 fasl); from tropical rainforests to imposing glaciers; from the territory of the endangered spectacled bear to the skyways of majestic condors in flight; all combining to make this a unique and memorable experience. The route begins in the town of Capuliyoc and passes through the famous archaeological complex of Choquequirao. We’ll visit small villages along the route, running lightly over intact Inca paths winding through the mountains, and ending at the mystical ancient citadel of Machu Picchu.

This running retreat adventure is open to ages 15 and up of any pace or level of runner. Must be able to complete 8-15 miles/day of hiking/running, including 1,000-6,000 feet of elevation gain per day. Optional 12-week training package available from an experienced running coach to ensure you’re trained and ready to go for this adventure of a lifetime!
