LA GESTA 2021 will be the first ever tier 2 ARWS regional round in South America and starts this weekend!  

It will offer a very challenging course of over 170kms over 20 to 24hs combining 130k mtb, 30k treking and 10k paddling with good navigation choices.  25 Teams from all over Paraguay and 2 international teams will participate in the Expedition full course format and many more in the short course events.  (There are also 50km and 30km multisport races and a series of trail races.)

The 4 person mixed team winning the elite race will be the first team ever to qualify for the regional championship to be hosted in Pucón Chile at the end of 2021.  

This is the 5th edition of the race and the Ñandupé Aventura team lead by Rodrigo Cubilla has everything prepared for this amazing race in Humaitá, a venue in northern Paraguay filled with important regional stories and legends. There are many fortifications built to defend Paraguay in the late 1800’s during the Triple Alliance War with Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay.

Luis Bernal (the former President of The Adventure Runners Club who organise AR in Paraguay) will be the assigned referee to this event. "It's a great experience I've been craving for some time to understand the full meaning of being an adventure racer". He said.

Trackers provided by the organization will allow people from all over to dotwatch the first regional ARWS tier 2 event!
