PATAGONMAN course runs point-to-point, or fjord to lake. It starts before sunrise in the Aysén Fjord, where the athletes must jump from a ferryboat into the icing cold water, to swim 3.8 kilometers toward Puerto Chacabuco where they can exit the water and find their bikes in the first transition area (T1). From there, they ride 180 kilometers into the windy, winding and hilly road of the famous Carretera Austral to Cerro Castillo, one of the most scenic postcards of Patagonia where they can leave their bikes in the second transition area (T2). From there, they run 42.2 kilometers of dirt trail and rubble road following the Ibánez River through forest, next to beautiful lakes and waterfalls all the way to the General Carrera Lake, another landmark of the region.
