la cordillera


The Cordillera Challenge is the perfect race for runners who seek adventure and adrenaline and want to face a unique experience in the mountains. It requires a considerable level of training and the ability to adapt to conditions that can be extreme. This is not a race suitable for beginners or for people who are not used to being exposed to adverse situations involving the mountains, long periods of time exposed to the elements, tough terrain, etc. Runners must be highly aware of the risks involved in an event of this magnitude. That said, each participant must comply with the following requirements and procedures:

  • Must be over 21 years old.
  • Submit the medical certificate duly signed and stamped by a doctor. This should be sent to 15 days in advance prior to the event or be delivered personally at the race accreditation when you pick up your runner's kit.
  • Declare that you accept all terms and conditions and duly sign the liability waiver which must be sent to once you receive your registration confirmation or it can be delivered personally at the race accreditation. If you do not comply, the organization reserves the right of admission, and you will not be able to participate.
  • Register before: October 15th, 2022.
