About the Race

WHY RUN IT?

Machu Picchu is one of the most magical places on the planet, between its history and the lush cloud forests that surround, 8,000 feet above sea level. It’s the adventure of a lifetime to see this world wonder up close, let alone to run a marathon on the Inca Trail en route.

“In the variety of its charms and the power of its spell, I know of no other place in the world which can compare with it.”

- Hiram Bingham

When you come down from the trail, better plan for a couple more weeks in Peru, lest you miss out on the charming town of Cusco or desert coastline south of Lima. There’s a great hop-on, hop-off bus service that will take you to Paracas, Huacachina, and Arequipa if you have the time.
