A tremendous, wild, tough, and strong race, suitable for those who truly are mentally strong and have a powerful heart. My goal was to finish, and, in the best case scenario, finish amongst the top 5. I had the opportunity of finishing second, not for being the fastest, the most trained, or the most capable, this was perseverance, toughness, mind, mind, and mind, convincing myself that there are no more limitations that one could put; today, i am a person more prepared from what I went through last week.

This trail is unique. It’s hard to describe some emotions or sensations that you experience during a trail, because everyone has their own feelings and lives their own experience. Thus, I’m convinced that the only way to understand what a runner lives and feels during a trail, especially a trail like Ultra Fiord in Patagonia, is to take part in it yourself. Endurance sports are true introspection, not only on yourself, but also on your family, your environment, and the world you live in. Therefore I’m going to describe this unique route through Patagonia.

That was the most technical 100 mile course I’ve ever seen. Great event! Mud bogs, peet bogs. Super rocky, glacier travel, butt slide, crevasse jumping, Class 4 scrambling. Full on bush whacking, broke a pole, wore every layer in my pack. Stocked for another hundred mile win (well, 108 mile, I guess). Special day. Had a dude from Chile push me through 100k mark, trading lead. Middle 70k was off the hook hard….

I am so happy. An unreal and incredibly long, exhausting day and night on a course so burly and wild it was (literally) laughable. Knee-deep mud (and mud pits) everywhere, grandiose glaciers, endless bogs, up and over mountain peaks, scree fields, snow fields, class 3 and 4 scrambling, dozens of river crossings – one chest deep through glacial runoff, rain, fog, mist, slippery ascents and descents, rocks and roots, dense forests, sharp and unforgiving branches, bushwhacking, and just plain mean-ness…..
Ended up with a very happy 2nd place (5th place overall including the men) to Krissy, who crushed it per usual. 21 hours and 30 minutes of being worked to the absolute core through the Patagonia wilderness has come to an end……Read the full status HERE

Every picture that appears, brings a story with it: fugacious passages from an endless story, as long as the distance you ran. A story that doesn’t want to end, a race that brings him to a new limit, that race that he had never run, that race with two nights, that race at the end of the World, this extreme and wild race in the land of the Patagonians….That race where Trail Running along with the runner would be carried into another dimension. His mind and body confronted a wild and extreme fight, as the race’s environment itself, where the mind must govern the body through the will to lead it to the finish of your dreams…..Read the full testimony HERE

…..I had decided to target the inaugural Ultra Fiord in Chilean Patagonia because it was being held by the same race director who organizes the Patagonia Expedition Race – once heralded by National Geographic as “The last wild race.” There were whisperings coming up from the south about glacier travel, of swimming across rivers and of puma sightings. It was something I wanted to be a part of…..Read Matt’s full recap HERE

The Ultra Fiord 108 mi (173K) Loved it: mountain pass traversing, class 4 climbing, glacier traverses, mud & bogs to thighs, significant portions off trail, incredible mountain scenery, a true adventure! I got the win and 5th overall! Toughest race I’ve ever done and I want to go back!

Ultra Fiord ended up being the “Ultra Trail” version of the Patagonian Expedition Race.
I crossed the finish line very happy, full of energy, celebrating the feat. It was a mixed feeling of satisfaction and relief. I was happy to have arrived well, no big scare, and for being the first women to finish the 70 kilometers and fourth overall. It was a very difficult test, in an inhospitable region….Read the rest HERE

Tremendous 30K trail running race, would 100% recommend it. I enjoyed it the whole time, sometimes encountering obstacles such as mud, which you could fall in if you didn’t pass through it well (I fell a few times). The famous mud and peet bogs, that sometimes came up to your waist, forcing you to leave by using the branches and continuing with the adventure, neither the river crossings nor the feeling of cold were pleasurable, being wet up to the knees; however, with that being said, the environment around us was beautiful, and once more, fills me with joy, pride, satisfaction, knowing that one achieves what one intends, in addition to obtaining good results….Read her whole account HERE

In order to understand this outside-the-normal experience, you have to live it. The word “trail” does not fit, better to reference an “expedition.” The goal of this article is not to dissuade you from participating in the next Ultra Fiord editions, but that this race, on the contrary, becomes a personal challenge that brings together many different aspects, such as personal triumph. Only that you should be aware that it is a completely different race than those you run every weekend. It requires a physical and mental preparation that can’t be minimised…..Read the whole post HERE

5 months of training were spent to obtain this medal; it is the toughest Ultra I have ever run. I experienced tremendous physical and psychological wear and tear in the 114km, with 4.000m. I lived the longest day of my life, 29 hours and 4 minutes. Thinking of my kids during the night in the mountain, and of Pablito’s phrase, are what moved my legs. “Pa, a mountain runner never quits.”

…the answer is that discovering something new should be within oneself. It should begin on a journey, and be taken both in full and in peace, knowing that you will become a better person in each moment. Many people question the pain and physical suffering, and I respond that it ends the moment you cross the finish line; the feeling of completing this challenge will last for months…Read the rest HERE

There is a gap between running 100 miles in the convenience of Central Chile and running 100 miles in one of the extreme parts of the country. This is the event’s most attractive feature; it makes you leave your comfort zone, feel your painful legs, feel the cold, and wish to reach the next aid station… this is the wild and extreme Ultra Fiord, a race created for experienced trail runners. If you are only a beginner, go back to the streets!

The adventure began with the chance to contest in Ultra Fiord’s 70k.
The first factor was without a doubt the place, the location. Patagonia is one of the world’s mountaineer meccas. The second reason was NIGSA and Stjepan Pavicic, a Chilean that leads great, organized mountain challenges that are both large and well-mounted around the globe.

This is a very challenging race course and, in my opinion, more of an adventure run than a running race. Runners should be prepared for all weather and terrain conditions imaginable because it is likely you will experience them. I’d recommend this race to those in search of true adventure. You need a resilient spirit that welcomes the test of your physical and mental limits.
