The End of the World Marathon

A few days from Patagonia's most important marathon, we invite you to join an outdoor experience in the city of the End of the World.


Are you ready to run through one of the most beautiful places in southern Argentina? The  2019 Ultra Martial Glacier Marathon  invites you to enjoy the city of the End of the World like never before. Through incredible  trails  through the city of  Ushuaia , the Beagle Canal and the Martial Glacier, thousands of runners from around the world will meet in this outdoor competition.

The sports competition will be held on December 8 in the province of  Tierra del Fuego , with the aim of uniting sport and tourism in a single event. Forests, beaches, lakes, valleys, mountains and in front of the mystic   Beagle Canal  . You can't ask for more!


As the organizers report on their  official website , the days before the race will be delivered kits for the competition. In addition, there will be talks from participants, coaches and elite runners to inform about the tours and provide recommendations.

If you are hesitating to run on the mountain, we tell you that there are various  routes that are adaptable to suit all tastes . Starting from the base of the Martial Glacier, participants can choose to travel 25, 50 and 70 km from that tourist point, one of the most important in Ushuaia, ascend to the glacial ice base at an altitude of 850 msm.

Then you will make a pleasant descent, walking a picturesque trail over Esperanza stream. Crossing a bridge, you will reach a new ascent to Cerro del Medio, making a glorious summit of 920 meters above sea level. There you will enjoy a privileged view of the city of Ushuaia, the  Beagle Channel , Navarino Island and the Darwin Mountain Range. The tour crosses lagoons, bridges and mountains, with the best view of the Fueguine lands. For those who need to rest a little, there will be a small route on asphalt to stretch their legs a little, although unfortunately everything on the rise!

Those who decide to take the  longest routes will cross the Waterfall of Friends and will cross the Arakur route. In addition, you will have the opportunity to contemplate a new view of Ushuaia, from another of its beautiful places.
