For a runner like me - who lives in Santiago, Chile - have the opportunity to run a relatively flat marathon, getting there in just a couple of hour by plane, and running in mild, cold weather is priceless.
This race has 7 prior runnings, and the course is the same - in fact it's IAFF certified, so the organization has improved over the years. The crowd is enthusiastic, but there are only a few people (do not expect thousands of people cheering for you). Still, the quality of these supporters are out of question!
The amenities of the city include good restaurants. I truly recommend this fast marathon, whether you run it as your main event of the year, or as a preparation for a major one in the second half of the year.
