Why Run It?

What to Expect

When La Transtica calls it’s 200 km version ‘Extreme’, they aren’t kidding! It has 30,500 feet of climbing and 25,750 feet of descent. Cumulative finishing times range from 22 hours to 38 hours, split into four roughly equal stages and one mini-stage.

"A river cuts through a rock, not because of its power but because of its persistence."

-Jim Watkins

La Transtica crosses from Costa Rica’s Pacific Coast to its Caribbean Coast, through dense rainforests, coffee plantations, sugar cane plantations, and palm groves. As long as you can handle a bit of heat, humidity, and climbing, you’re likely to find the course more breathtaking than brutal.
