Have you ever felt completely insignificant in comparison to nature? Well, get ready to feel precisely that way among the turquoise waters, glaciers and towering granite horns of the Torres del Paine National Park. The jaw-dropping landscapes of this eighth wonder of the world are humbling indeed.
Marathon Tours & Travel has partnered with The Massif ®, a Magellan family business that recognizes the relevance and natural heritage value of Torres del Paine. Our PATAGONIA RUNNING FESTIVAL packages have been designed to bring together global runners to participate in the best race day and adventure travel experience that Chilean Patagonia has to offer. Running within Torres del Paine National Park runners can choose from the Ultra 50K, Marathon, Half-Marathon, 10K and the new 5K distances. After fulfilling the dream of running in one of the most pristine places on the planet, you will cross the finish line conveniently located at our Hotel Rio Serrano & Spa and join the post-race celebration! We have incorporated three years of clients feedback to enhance our Patagonian experience and welcome you to read what past clients highlighted.
Once again, we will offer our seven-night (Experience Chile) and five-night (Experience Patagonia) packages. In addition, we are excited to offer a new option: Atacama to Patagonia Ten-Night Package! All of our packages include accommodations in Patagonia at the Hotel Rio Serrano & Spa and their “all-inclusive” packages that include 12 daily excursions with trekking, boating, horseback riding and climbing options so you can explore this UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve on the non-race days.
What else can you expect? Terrific wildlife-watching in Torres del Paine; seeing majestic condors soaring in the skies overhead; spotting foxes, huemul or Andean deer and guanacos along the way; and if you lie in wait patiently, you might be lucky enough to spot the reclusive puma!

Thank you to Ms. Suter for her excellent piece on what to do if your race is cancelled. Her writing reminded me to refocus on mindfulness and to maintain the training plan for the Outback. Her counsel applies not only to running but to life in general. In line with something Ms. Suter writes, I recently resumed yoga to help deal with the Covid-19 stress. I had started following a Runner’s World yoga DVD in the months prior to Bhutan to prepare spiritually. Ironically I dropped yoga when we returned to the states because I felt too busy!
That leads to my next thought. We were reminiscing the past two days about our wonderful time in Bhutan. Thank you to the great staff at Marathon Tours & Travel. These memories, plus Patagonia and the Big 5 tours, remind us of the beauty in the world. We greatly appreciate the work Ann and Stephanie have done for us. We look forward to traveling again.
Really enjoyed the atmosphere of the finish - so nice being by the hotel so we could get showered and then cheer the others in.
Marathon Tours has the unique skill of making everything about the trip work perfectly. Nothing is missed - a beautiful hotel, thoughtful gifts such as the water bottles, tables laid out with food and drink at each excursion...fabulous staff...you guys have these tours to perfection!! Thank you.
