We thought why hike the Inca Trail when you can run it!
This bucket list marathon is designed by experienced racers Erik and Myra Rasmussen. Erik's Adventures was the first to host an official, accurate, and fully supported 26.2 mile marathon race on The Inca Trail. Our 2012 inaugural event featured 41 runners. In 2013, we had runners doing both the full course and our 18 mile Incathon race. 2014 and 2015 were sold out and new Inca Trail Marathon records were set. Join us in July 2016 and race this incredible destination marathon on the Inca Trail and you will have your once in a lifetime photo finish at Machu Picchu!

Our philosophy for group travel is to maintain a balance of structure and flexibility:
Our custom itinerary is specially designed to do so. During this marathon tour, our experienced guides take you to the famous sites of Peru as well as to lesser known destinations, educating you on the many aspects of Peruvian culture. You also have plenty of flexibility to do some exploring on your own. This allows for an individual experience within a group travel setting.
