Getting there

International flights from the UK to Santiago fly overnight and tend to arrive in the morning. This gives you time to connect to a 4 hour flight to Punta Arenas. It's then a 2.5 hour drive to Puerto Natales - the Race HQ for the Patagonia International Marathon.

You can either stay in Puerto Natales for a night or push on another 2.5 hour into Torres del Paine National Park and stay at somewhere like Tierra Patagonia, Eco Camp or Patagonia Camp which are all close to the start locations of each distance.

On the day of the race, you need to be at the start line 60 minutes before the start. We will ensure you are in the right place at the right time.
