"Racing in Mexico has been on my list for a long time and it was a pleasure for the first time to be at UTMX Desafio en las Nubes. What an amazing race! The people, the trails, and the race organization are all amazing. This course is already one of my favorites because of the difficulty, the views, and running through the jungle. I for sure will be racing in Mexico again and it’s only a matter of time before the rest of the trail running world finds out about the amazing races here."
