Dear competitors, adventure seekers, and nature lovers:

Mexico's Toughest Race celebrates its sixth edition in 2023 with a stellar distance of 500 KM, in addition to the distances of 30, 60, 100, and 200 KM.

After five years of success, we are proud to once again present La Ruta Madre Adventure Race. Our goal is to promote ecotourism through mountain sports in Nuevo León and Mexico, explore the wonders and challenges that nature has to offer and experience endless emotions together with you.

An adventure race consists of overcoming different challenges that arise in nature, as a team and through different mountain sports, in order to reach the finish line. The spirit of teamwork is essential to be able to complete this race successfully.

You can learn more about La Ruta Madre Adventure Race by watching the documentaries of the first three editions and following us on social networks:

In the last five editions of La Ruta Madre Adventure Race, we have had a combination of trail running, mountain biking, canyoneering, rope ascent and descent, kayaking, orienteering, rock climbing, plogging, caving, and slackline.

Key hallmarks that characterize La Ruta Madre are that the route is confidential until one day before the race, littering is prohibited, the entire team must run together, it is mandatory to provide assistance to other teams if required, we encourage female participation, we support in an environmental, economic, and social way the communities where the route unfolds and plogging is carried out, so that all competitors must collect a symbolic amount of garbage to validate their arrival at the finish line.
