The Expedition

The Expedition

FROM THE CERRO DE LA MUERTE TO CORCOVADO - 8 TO 6 HOURS OF RUNNING PER DAY

Day 1* - MOUNTAIN OF THE DEAD

20km (1000↑|2200↓) * First running day, the day before we will sleep in Hotel close to the airport. Day 2 is the first day of running, we will be transfer to the highest mountain pass in Costa Rica. Will start ascending 300m to get to the top of the Cerro de la Muerte (Mountain of the Dead – 3450m elevation). In front of us looking unreachable, the Pacific Ocean, we will start descending by the most beautiful high altitude rain cloud tropical forest. Our destination that day is Providencia where a Costa Rican family will make us feel at home.

Day 2 - EL BRUJO (THE WIZARD)

26km (1900↑|3400↓). Traversing the Dantas domain. Okay here we are talking about epicness, which requires the best breakfast made by Doña Noire, is going to take us about 8 hours to make the distance, with two stops to meet the people that leaves in the jungle and get some food to help us keep going. The name of our destination? “Piedras Blancas” (White Rocks) We won’t give you more info about it, is better that way.

Day 3 - MAKING IT TO THE PACIFIC

40km (The Wizard) (900↑|1100↓). El Brujo is surrounded by high mountains, is a place where you go if you don’t want to be found, getting out of there requires obviously going up a long trail by the jungle at the top of which spectacular views of the sea await us. At that point there will still be distance to be covered, when we finally make it to the Pacific we all will have a story to tell to our grandkids.

Day 4 - WELCOME HOME - THE JUNGLE BEACHES

18km (450↑|450↓). South, always south! So much effort to get to the sea. We won’t call it a rest day, but at least millage will decrease a bit. We are going to Pablo’s home.

Day 5 - PIRATE DRAKE SECRET BAY

32 km (1100↑|1150↓). Francis Drake thought the place we are running by this day was perfect to hide his gigantic treasure, the place is indeed a dense wetland area where people start to establish less that a 100 years ago. Adventure tourist go their by boat, we are no tourist, we will run our way by the jungle.

Day 6 - GETTING TO CORCOVADO

21 km (350↑|350↓). Corcovado, 3% of worlds biodiversity. This day is going to be a summary of the whole expedition. We will run by reefs, sand, estuaries , we will cross rivers, traverse lonely beaches, single trails, dense forest and waterfalls. This will be our second night in Bahia Drake, time to celebrate.
