In the year 2012, Patagonian International Marathon® became the first marathon to take place in Torres del Paine National Park. Since that first edition, the event has occurred each year in the month of September, either inside the park or within its surroundings. The only interruption was in 2020 due to the pandemic. Since its origin, the event has brought together runners from more than 65 countries, converging together in the extreme south of Patagonia to fulfill the dream of running in one of the most pristine locations on the planet. It is the most multinational marathon in Southern Chilean Patagonia.
The eleventh edition of Patagonian International Marathon® will take place on Saturday, 9 September, 2023. The event will take place within Torres del Paine National Park, utilizing its vehicular gravel routes, which are characterized by various curves and steep slopes. The race distances are 42K, 21K and 10K. The entire route presents you with breathtaking scenery, with the best views towards the principal mountains of the park: Cerro Paine Grande, Cuernos del Paine, Cerro Almirante Nieto and Torres del Paine. The shared finish line for all distances is located a few meters from the Welcome Center at Reserva Las Torres (To be confirmed).
The magic of running in the heart of Patagonia, alongside runners from all over the world, and the adventure of facing a relentless, and at times even hostile, climate are essential elements of Patagonian International Marathon®.
