For the Grit and the Glory

Patagonian International Marathon 63k

Written by Yassine Diboun

Before September 2013 Patagonia was a cool company and a logo on my jacket. I knew that it was a far-away place that many outdoor adventurers visit, but honestly didn’t think I’d get the opportunity to travel there (especially for running) at this stage in my life. How did I get so lucky?! I’ll tell you. The Chilean Board of Tourism and the event organizers made it possible for some athletes to come down to promote the growth of the race, and the inaugural 63k distance of this 2nd year event. Grateful and honored I accepted the offer, but even after I arrived to the southern tip of Chile (after a very long journey!) I could not believe I was actually there staring at the majestic mountains and lakes. It was surreal for sure!
