A competitive event in a league of its own, the Patagonia Camp Cup invites runners to embrace the ever-changing terrain and climate of Patagonia and race across the valleys of Chile’s most southern region, on the edge of the South American continent. Hosted by the exclusive Patagonia Camp, the annual race will take place May 25 and will bring a celebratory end to this year’s season for this exclusive “glamping” resort. Now on its fourth edition, the Patagonia Camp Cup takes participants along the trails of the camp’s scenic private reserve with 15K, 25K and 42 K courses.
Patagonia Camp embraces its home region’s popularity as an outdoor sports and nature-lover destination and welcomes guests to enjoy the property’s distinctive offerings while embarking excursions in either neighboring Torres del Paine National Park or within the camp itself, in exclusive activities such as kayaking, fishing, hiking or stand-up paddling (SUP). Majestic Torres del Paine National Park and Patagonia Camp are located in Chile’s extreme south, the so-called Magellan and Antarctic Region.
Runners, their families and other property patrons can enjoy the autumnal tones of Patagonia’s tranquil fall landscape and connect with nature while running, or just walking, among colorful native trees, snowy mountain ranges, blue-and-turquoise lakes and the impressive Paine massif. An award ceremony at the event’s closure will feature a true Patagonian-style celebration, with a lamb BBQ, Matetic organic wines and local craft beers — all to the tune of the best electronic music by a live DJ.
Guests participating in the Patagonia Camp Cup can take advantage of a special package that includes transfers from and to Punta Arenas, Puerto Natales or Cancha Carrera; accommodation in a double or single “yurt” (a Mongolian-style tent); full board and open bar on site; entrance to the award ceremony and celebration; runner’s kit; and entrance fee to the park, with excursions led by bilingual guides. Runners can also take advantage of on-premises physical therapy professionals.
