UTTP (Ultra Trail Torres del Paine) is a trail running even that takes place in Chilean Patagonia, Providence of Última Esperanza (Last Hope), in the surroundings of Torres del Paine National Park. Since 2014, the event brought runners from 20 countries, converging to the southern tip of the Patagonia to fulfill the dream of running in one of the most pristine place on the planet!
The fourth edition of UTTP will take place on September 23, 2017, and will feature four race distances: 80K, 50K, 35K, and 14K. The design for this year’s route will maintain the same base from last year’s edition, located to the South of the majestic Torres del Paine National Park. The new 80K distance, in addition to being greater in length, will also incorporate a considerable increase of ascents in relation to the shorter distances. The shared finish line for all distances will be located at the spectacular Hotel Río Serrano (#TheAmazingFinishLine). The magic of running in Patagonia, together with runners from around the world and the adventure of confronting a restless, and sometimes even hostile, climate will continue being the essence of the event.
Geographically, the event is developed in the American continent’s extreme south, at 51° south latitude, in a prime location of Western Patagonia, to the East of the Great Southern Ice Field and South of Torres del Paine National Park. The closest city to the event’s race zone is Puerto Natales, located 250 km to the North of Punta Arenas, which is the region’s capital.
