Half Marathon Des Sables, Peru

The Half Marathon Des Sables is designed for road runners looking for their first adventure race or a new destination. The Ica Desert is an unusal landscape and not that well known - which makes it even more interesting! Challenge yourself and be immersed between the mountains of sand and the Pacific Ocean.
