Dear Friends,

For thirteen years, we have led the first and only, fully supported Running Adventures in the Andes Mountains of Per̼, Patagonia (Chile & Argentina) and Ecuador. Last year we added Bolivia. The Andean Triangle Running Adventure & Atacama Marathon includes Chile, Bolivia and Peru Рall in one trip.
We offer top quality at unmatched prices. Past participants are our best advertisement. Please check the enthusiastic comments in our website.
Our Adventures are for runners of all ages and abilities. Each event features full support, aid stations and course markings – even in the most remote locations.

A revised summary of the upcoming Running Adventures for 2008 follows this letter.

Best wishes and a Happy New Year!

Blanca & Huayhuash High Mountain Challenge 150 Mile Multi-Stage Adventure Run

July 17 to July 31, 2008

Don’t underestimate this fabulous event!

Join us for the farewell edition of our most demanding running adventure in Perú,
a high mountain challenge ascending 10 passes over 15,000′ in just 7 days!

Hundreds of burros, horses and a very large team of guides, assistants, animal handlers, porters, cooks and other staff will be needed to set up the triple camp arrangements and multiple aid stations required in these 2 mountain ranges: Cordillera Blanca and Cordillera Huayhuash.

Because of the complex logistics of this adventure, this event will not be confirmed until we have at least 28 runners signed up.

In fairness to the 17 participants that have signed up for the event a long time ago…and due to the fact that most of us have to train and prepare physically for the event for at least 6 months….including myself.

The deadline to confirm the event is January 18, 2008.
If we do not have 28 participants signed up, the event will be canceled at that time.

We only need 11 additional reservations. Send your reservation now!

We do not plan to offer this adventure again after 2008.
