The next edition of the most important South American adventure race will take place in the north of Argentina between 13 and 15 April. The warm autumn weather and changing scenery make this an excellent time of year to enjoy the beauty of Salta and Jujuy. This is an extremely challenging foot race over three days, covering around 21 km (13 miles) each day at an average altitude of 2,900 meters (9,500 ft.) above sea level. There are two categories: two-person team and individuals. The race begins in the province of Salta on 13 April following the route of the famous Train to the Clouds. The next two days of the challenge take place in Jujuy. The route on 14 April snakes through hidden trails in the multi-colored hills between the villages of Tumbaya and Purmamarca. The last leg of the race takes place on the immense Salinas Grandes salt flats at an altitude of around 3400 meters (11,000 ft.) above sea level. More information on the official website of the race (in spanish).
