Carrera Chirripó

Sports in San Gerardo de Rivas

This grueling race from San Gerardo de Rivas to Crestones Base Lodge and back (34km) takes place at the end of February, with up to 225 participants. If you're trekking up the mountain you may be disheartened to know that the fastest man and woman have covered the distance in three hours four minutes, and four hours 19 minutes, respectively.
