Patagonman

Patagonman is the Xtreme triathlon at the end of the world. The course runs point-to-point; fjord to lake, crossing the entire country from West to East.

Patagonman starts before sunrise in the Aysén Fjord, where the athletes must jump from a ferry into the cold water and swim 3.8 kilometres toward Puerto Chacabuco where they find the first transition area. From there, they ride 180 kilometres through the windy, winding and hilly road of the famous Carretera Austral to Cerro Castillo, one of the most iconic scenes of Patagonia, where they will leave their bikes.

Finally, they run 42.2 kilometres of dirt trails and rubble roads following the Ibánez River through forest, passing beautiful lakes and waterfalls, all the way to the General Carrera Lake, another landmark of the region, where they find the finish line and the glory of finishing Patagonman.

Impressions

I just enjoy doing the race so much! I’m the most happy when I’m 2-3 hours into the cycle. Then I am just so happy! I'm always singing out loud and I ruin my race, because I push too hard.

Hårek Stranheim, NO

I enjoy most the whole journey, which has its long festive day, where I can push myself a bit further with my team and all of this in astonishing surroundings.

Mikko Lehmuskoski, FI

Surroundings, friendship between teams and your team pushing you forward. Awesome feeling.

That an xtri is not only with you on race day but from the moment you have an inkling it might be for you and then for the rest of the day. And I loved the soup on Gaustatoppen.
