I really like the range of mountains around Santiago and I know Cerro Carbon and Cerro Manquehue well, but I'm not that familiar with a lot of other peaks around here. Fortunately my RunningChile team mates Francisco and Alejandro know them really well and are always excited to show me a new peak.
For this run we went just half an hour outside of Santiago to run Cerro Provincia. It's a tough climb with a break in the middle where it's easier to run and roll through a few smaller hills. We reached the summit in a little over two hours and appreciated the unbelievable views of the Andes with many of the summits covered in snow.

A little after the summit there's a geodesic dome where we stopped for a break and to get out of the wind. It would be a great place to stop overnight and enjoy staying up in the mountains.
