From simple and short jogs through the ecological park of Buenos Aires to long distance runs in the Andes, there are plenty of different options to choose from.
Among the top spots for trail running in the Andes is in Penitentes. This is where the three-day El Origen trail running race begins from. With sections in Aconcagua Park, Las Cuevas and Cerro Penitentes, the race combines stunning scenery with a challenging but rewarding trail.
Another option is to head on a long distance run through Patagonia. Departing from San Martin de los Andes, racers can choose from a variety of distances ranging from 10 kilometers (6.2 miles) to 160 kilometers (99.4 miles). Regardless of what you choose to run, you will enjoy great scenery and enjoy parts of the Andes that could never be reached by vehicle alone.
