Mile for Mile:A Film About Trail Running and Conservation in Patagonia

Ultrarunners Krissy Moehl, Jeff Browning and Luke Nelson run 106 miles through the newly opened Patagonia Park in Chile, to celebrate and highlight Conservacion Patagonica’s efforts to re-wild and protect this vast landscape.

The Final Push

Patagonia Park, in the Aysen Region of Chile – is now open to the public. The park sweeps from the northern ice cap, down to the Baker River and out to the arid borderlands of Argentina. The park’s glaciated peaks, grasslands, beech forests, lakes, rivers and wetlands still boast all of their original species – and the rivers still run free. Patagonia, Inc. has been involved in this project from day one – helping with the first land purchases, sending volunteers down to rip up hundreds of miles of fencing and restore open grasslands, and fighting mega-dam projects on the Baker and Pascua Rivers. Much has been accomplished – but, a final push is needed.

Conservacion Patagonica plans to build over 50 miles of new trails to connect the local community and visitors from everywhere to this remarkable place. Follow in the footsteps of our trail running ambassadors and join the ranks of people who love this park. Donate to Conservacion Patagonica, and help build 50 miles of trail - Patagonia will match your donation, mile for mile.

*Total estimated cost per mile is $1,600. Matching program ends December 31, 2015.

Krissy Moehl

“In 1999, with pigtails and only 22 years of life experience, wonderment drew me into the sport of ultrarunning. Taking the tips I learned from the men and morphing them to work with my body made the sport enjoyable, possible and sustainable—every body is different and it is important to figure out yours.”
