Given that it is Global Running Day, we thought it a great time to look at some of the most amazing races on the planet. Many of which, coincidentally can be found in Latino America. For all those marathoners, triathaloners or simply lovers of the greatest scenery on earth. Check out our curation of some the most amazing races on Mother Earth.
Inca Trail Marathon
This 27.5-mile marathon in Peru follows the original pilgrimage trail. It begins in the city of Cusco and leads you to the capital of the Inca Empire and the “Lost City of the Incas” aka Machu Picchu. However, beginners beware, this race is not for the faint of heart. The trail is considered by many as the hardest marathon in the world. The trail takes you over mountain terrain with altitudes from 8,000 to 13,779 feet, but along the way you will be rewarded as you’ll be able to get your Indiana Jones on by seeing some of the greatest archaeological sites in the world.
