Wenger Patagonian Expedition Race 2011 - Trailer: The last wild race
The Wenger Patagonian Expedition Race is a true expedition, taking teams of four through lands previously unknown to the human eye. Racers receive minimal assistanceshow more as they traverse through the pristine southern Patagonia by means of trekking, climbing and related rope work, kayaking, mountain biking, and backcountry navigation. They often cover hundreds of kilometres without seeing a soul.
From February 8th - 16th 2011, competitors from all over the world have to advance over plains, mountains, glaciers, native forests, swampland, rivers, lakes and channels; guided only by mind and spirit but driven on by physical stamina and experience.
Above its adventure credentials, the event also carries an environmental message with the primary mission to raise awareness of conserving the very landscape it crosses - the remote wilderness of Chilean Patagonia. All funds raised beyond the operating budget of the event are directed to conservation projects in the region.show less
