Racing Patagonia is a 250km running event made possible by the cooperation of the Argentinian locals. During the course of the 6 day race we crossed private lands, and vast landscapes that remain unseen and unknown to many visitors and locals alike.  


This photo gallery is collection of images I was able to capture during my time spent filming Colin and the team and serves as a memory of the grand adventure we had in the beautiful Argentinian wilderness of Patagonia.
