The Atacama Crossing

The Atacama Desert is a plateau in South America, covering a 600-mile (1,000km), the dessert is one of few deserts on Earth that doesn't receive any rain. The Atacama Crossing? This is where things get interesting! The Atacama Crossing is an annual trail running race that involves crossing the dessert, on foot and unaided.

 

Atacama Crossing

 

The fascination with crossing uninhabited wastelands has also baffled me. These men and woman risk life and limb to be able to say they did something, bring on the super trike you can keep your dessert.

The race consists of 7 days, covering 150 miles (250km) crossing what is widely held as the driest place on earth. The race is represented by competitors from 40 countries and is 1 of 4 of such events that are held in the most desolate places on earth.

The four other race locations include:

  • The Sahara
  • The Gobi
  • Antarctica


The four locations are probably at the very bottom of my list of places to go before I die. I have the utmost respect for the fitness and mental fortitude it must take for these competitors to make these crossing. However, this one you can count me out of!
