How did we begin Run Ecuador?

In October 2010, we began to run 21 kilometers in routes of the 24 provinces of Ecuador for a cause: the protection of the Yasuni National Park. The first route of the 21x24Challenge was Imbabura: from Urcuqui to Salinas de Ibarra.

We were worried that no one would show up.  But 16 runners and 6 members from the crew participated, and we did the first 21k in about 2:15.

The roads were so beautiful, with cane crops and farms. Rivers, horses, and the view of the Cotacachi and Cayambe mountains. A pleasure. That day I felt so  excited so I said: “when in life would you have  the chance to run in a place like this, with a group of elite runners and friends?

Four years later I feel even more privileged. And now we begin Run Ecuador…

 

We will run this route again in September 06 to 11, 2014 in the Northern Sierra Route.

Are you ready?
