Runners get their water from streams and must carry all the food they need for the entire race. The course is changed every year and the exact route is announced just before the race…The course is usually between 95 and 105 miles and can have anywhere from 22,000 to 30,000 feet of climbing. Oh, and you have to wear a helmet.  Welcome to a hundo in South America.
