Atacama Crossing - Summary

Here's a recap of all the Atacama Crossing material from my race last month. I have most of the pictures from friends and the official photographer on my blog and a few other links to the results and videos from the race.

My finishers' medal and my trophy for winning the 20 to 29 year age group:


  1. Ok, now that you have finished. What next? I want to run sahara, but timing might be a bit tight. Gobi next year? Antartica if you can? Where to from here?

    1. I'm not exactly sure yet. I have some shorter races planned for the rest of this year: marathon trail races and a few 50 milers. I'm hoping to use these to work on my speed and build my single day endurance for the long day in multi-day races. I will be posting an update with more detail on this year's races soon.

      Next year I would like to run the Atacama Crossing again and maybe the Gobi. However, that's still a long way off and I have plenty of time to think about these races, plan and prepare.

  2. whatever happened to just running on a simple tartan track.... you guys are really brave and you take adventure to another level. keep it up chaps

    1. Hi Pete, thanks for the comment. This sure is a different playground to the track! It is also much more exciting and provides a few more views and interesting things to see along the way!!


I'd love to hear from you and get your perspective on my stories, thoughts and training. Please feel free to comment.
