EL CRUCE is a race which has been designed for adventure runners that look for extreme adrenaline in the mountain. Participants must be very well trained and they must have the capacity to adapt to difficult situations. This race will not fit the standards of those who are not used to coping with cold weather, wind, snow, rain, long trails, important elevation gains, accummulated exhaustion, logistics which might still pose a problem, delays or any other adversity.

You will spend 3 days away from hotels and areas of comfort. Even though runners’ safety will be a priority for us and even though we will proceed carefully in case of emergency, such procedure might be long, risky and complicated.

All participants must present a doctor’s certificate before registration day. It can be presented at Club de Corredores (916, Monroe Avenue, CABA), you can send it by email (info@elcrucecolumbia.com) or you can hand it in during check-in. It is important to include a contact address of the doctor who has signed your certificate.
