Photos: Patagonian International Marathon

Now in its third year, the Patagonian International Marathon sends runners on dirt roads and remote trails of Torres del Paine National Park in Chilean Patagonia. Runners in each of the four races (10K, 21K, 42K and 63K) set off from separate, remote starting lines but ultimately wind up at the same finishing point inside the preserved parklands. (The event is organized by Nomadas International Group, a nonprofit promoting the conservation of Chilean Patagonia and contributing to sustainable development there.) Each course offers breathtaking scenery and unique features, including multicolored lakes, majestic peaks or roaring rivers. Click through the photos below from Miroslav Rodriguez, Ariel Traipe, Christian Miranda and Eduardo Hernandez to get an inspiring glimpse of what this race is all about. The next race will be held on Sept. 26, 2014. For more information, go to patagonianinternationalmarathon.com.
