Pura vida is a characteristic Costa Rican phrase. It literally means pure life, however, the real meaning is closer to "plenty of life", "full of life", "this is living!", "going great", or "real living"

What better way to celebrate Pura Vida and trail running than to take a vacation to Costa Rica and participate in  La Ruta Trail Race, a 50K or 100K of challenging trails.

  • Wanna make it even better? How about inviting some Tarahumara to participate and give some of the entry fees to their struggling tribes.
  • Wanna make it even better?  If you are a TRN member (and let them know), you will get a $100 discount on the race entry!

Roman Urbina, a world-class multisport athlete who also puts on the Ruta de Los Conquistadore, a three-day  mountain bike race that goes from the pacific to the atlantic - also named as Time Magazines, "top 10 most difficult endurance races" - has developed a trail race that you will love!

The 100K was described by famed Tarahumara, Silvino Cuberase Quimare (From the Novel Born to Run) as "one of the hardest ultras I've done".  It claims 13,000-foot total elevation gain and tropical heat for the first half of the race.  HERE is a fun video that Costa Rica TV produced.

If you are interested, please contact Roman and he will even help make arrangements for you, your family, and friends: rurbina@adventurerace.com
