The first Columbia Cruce was made in 2002 seeking to unite Argentina with Chile through sport. Runners from both countries — in their first editions — and then from around the world, began to echo this extreme adventure sports competition.Thus, the event went from gathering 300 people — back in 2002 — to more than 4000 registered in its latest edition.
The race lasts three days , that is, it is performed in three stages.Runners make a journey of 100 kilometers , crossing different landscapes, sharing camps and measuring teamwork. The competition takes place in pairs, that is to say that pairs are formed to overcome each of the postas.
The landscape through which the race takes place is of unparalleled appeal . Participants during their tour, cross mountain areas, snow-capped tops, forests, lakes and mountain range rock areas.
While this sporting event is always held in summer, weather conditions are usually varied during the race journey . There are sections in which the sun accompanies with temperatures ranging between 20 and 25 degrees. Others are usually adverse, having runners to cross situations of extreme cold , snow, wind and abundant rains.
That's why the Columbia Cross is said to be not for anyone. It requires a great pre-training and fitness fit to withstand the difficulties of this extreme challenge.
The race brings together runners from all over the world . In its last edition there were more than 35 countries and, this year, there will be 45 nations present.
Participants are of different ages, mostly amateurs and some established professionals. They usually run in pairs and in one of the three categories (ladies, gentlemen or mixed). There are also those who do it individually , betting on a double effort and a great professional preparation.
Undoubtedly, all the “adventurous columbiense” experience great emotions during their passage through the crossing, taking with them indelible memories of self-improvement.
