It is quite simply one of the hardest races known to endurance athletes. It is 155 miles through the desert land of the Atacama Crossing in northern Chile – the driest place on earth and 50 times more arid than California’s Death Valley. Over the course of seven days, racers will compete against the heat during the day, frigid nights, varied elevation, and each other. It is part of the 4 Deserts Race Series and none for the faint of heart.
It’s a race Jarrett Kovics is taking very seriously – and with a higher mission driving his training.
