26.2 Mile Inca Trail Marathon on Measured Course
"The Most Difficult Marathon in the World"

Do not be misled! There is no "official" Inca Trail Marathon. There cannot be because the Inca Trail is in a National Park. We organized our first Inca Trail Marathon in 1996. Benefit from our 20 years of Inca Trail experience. Compare the value and level of service offered in the Andes Adventures Inca Trail Classic 30K and 26.2 Mile Marathon to ANY other company!

Land cost $2,995 including ground transportation in Perú; quality hotels, all meals and guided tours. If you are looking for a marathon in South America, join us to run the most spectacular South America marathon. With over 10,000' of elevation gain, two high passes (13,000' & 13,800'), and thousands of Inca steps we believe the Andes Adventures Inca Trail Marathon is the most difficult fully supported, regularly scheduled marathon in the world.

We organized our first Inca Trail Marathon in 1996. Benefit from our 20 years of Inca Trail experience. Thousands of runners and trekkers from around the world have successfully completed our Inca Trail events and 100% of the marathon participants have completed the Classic 30K course in one day.

Please note, there is no "official" Inca Trail Marathon. There cannot be because the Inca Trail is in a National Park. Because it is in a National Park we feel the event should be low key. We run without bib numbers and limit the number of participants.

Our running adventure begins in Cusco, the archaeological capital of the Americas, at an altitude of 11,150 feet. In Cusco you will be able to see massive walls, cobblestone streets and remnants of the Inca empire and the Spanish colonial period. After a fascinating tour of Cusco, we are ready to start our running adventure, which offers a spectacular variety of trails in the Southern Peruvian Andes.

We begin our mountain marathon on the ancient Inca trail that leads to the legendary lost city of Machu Picchu - an extraordinary adventure into the history of the grand Inca civilization. Along the way, we explore the intriguing ruins of Inca fortresses, and enjoy the expansive views from the high passes. Descending to the Sun Gate and Machu Picchu, the cloud forest trail becomes increasingly lush and varied. After two days exploring Machu Picchu — one of the world's most spectacular ruins — we take a train ride back to Cusco.
