Lican Ray to Villarrica - Chile - 2012 - 3rd

NOTE: May 2020

In preparation for the Atacama Crossing in 2012 I decided to do this race as a chance to do a run similar to the long stage in the Atacama. It was a fun trip down to the South of Chile and along with the race it was a great chance for V and me to visit a new place and see some of the south of Chile. I had a good day and I was pleased with my condition and readiness for the goal in the Atacama.

Starting in the rain.

First 5km and last 5km were on the roads with trails in between.

Settling into my pace about 3km in.

Feeling really good at this point.

Most of the race was on roads like this with about 5km of perfect trails in the middle.

First stop at the only aid station which was at 40km and then used again at 50km.

About to take 3rd place in sprint to the finish.

Race result:

8 January 2012
