It is the only 100 mile race in the world to go around a volcano. The only 100 mile race in the world to go around an active volcano. Like no other event on this planet, circumvent 100 miles around Rincon de La Vieja active volcano, mystical and sacred ground to the ancient Curubandé tribe.

Climb to lush cloud forests and advance over Costa Rica’s continental divide. Cross sky blue rivers born and colored by La Vieja’s volcanic elements. Adventure into pristine and less traveled paths on the Caribbean Slope’s tropical rainforest and the jaguar's domain. Admire the scenic beauty where Rincon de La Vieja and Miravalles volcanoes meet and complete the circle of your challenge in one final climb back to the Pacific Slope.Watch the diverse terrain forged millions of years ago change below your tires, smooth white limestone roads, calcite rock “diente de perro” trails, round river rock, tedious volcanic rock, red clay tracks and gravel roads.
