Atacam Desert Race

4Deserts-Atacama Desert of Chile -- the driest place on Earth. The course begin in Machuca, Chile following the old Inca Trail and eventually winds down into the Valley of the Moon and Valley of Death - the same locations where NASA tests its Mars rover vehicles. The finish line in the Town Square of San Pedro de Atacama, Chile, an oasis in the middle of the desert.

I completed my first desert race without major problems. It was with great joy that I received my first 4desert medal.

During the 250-kilometer / 150-mile event, competitors must carry their own personal gear, food and clothing in a backpack. The only assistance provided to them is water (plenty) for drinking and making food, tents to sleep in at night, and medical and management support
