It’s a one –off race that is part of the 4 Deserts Race Series. The course presents a great variety of Patagonian landscape including dry pampas, ancient forests, pristine blue mountain lakes, high plateaus, vast views of valleys, rivers as well as peaks of the Andes Mountain Range including El Tronador, an extinct volcano located along the border between Argentina and Chile; and Ventisquero Negro, the black glacier, one of the eight glaciers formed around the mountain. Competitors will also experience life in local villages with friendly locals, Gauchos, as they traverse the 250 kilometer course.
