In 2017, the TENTH EDITION of the RacingThePlanet Ultramarathon will take place in the famous Patagonia region of Argentina. Patagonia is dominated by the Andes, the longest mountain range on earth, running the length of South America from Colombia to the Strait of Magellan and across to Tierra del Fuego. Patagonia covers about one third of the land area of both Chile and Argentina, but less than 5% of either nations’ population actually lives there. The Argentine side, where RacingThePlanet: Patagonia will be staged, features arid steppes, grasslands, deserts, aqua-colored lakes and rivers, with a large variety of wildlife some of which include deer, armadillos, fox and pumas.
