This is your chance to run on one of the most remote inhabited islands. Easter Island, also known by islanders as Rapa Nui, lies 2,300 miles from land of any significance. A tiny speck in the middle of the South Pacific, the island is roughly triangular in shape with its rocky shores. A Chilean territory since 1888, Easter Island has a population of 4,000 who live primarily in Hanga Roa, the island’s only town. The island is known for its famous imposing stone statues (moai), which punctuate the landscape and on average stand 13 feet high and with 14 tons.
The race weekend includes a variety of events and distances including the marathon, half-marathon, 10K, sprint triathlon, half ironman triathlon, 35K or 70K mountain bike race. What will you see on the course? Moai in the distance, wild horses, wayward cows, and tourist-loving dogs to name a few!
Following your Easter Island experience, we invite you to join us on the optional extension to Machu Picchu!

The balance between activities and "down time." It made the experience relaxing yet I learned a lot about the island's history and culture.
Exotic, remote location, unique race course, interesting local people and wonderful food. We also loved meeting other runners on this trip - it was a terrific bunch!
