ABOUT THE LOCATION

You will spend the afternoons and nights in the beautiful town of San Sebastian Bernal. This village has  has been given the denomination of  "Magical Town" and it is the ideal refuge to find tranquility and rest, while soaking in the history and beauty of an old Mexican colonial town.

Close to our base in Bernal lies Cañon del Paraíso, which will be the site of our main adventure. The Canyon, which follows the Extoraz river, is framed by black marble walls that reach up to 100 meters and feature ancient petroglyphs and cave paintings created by the indigenous tribe of the region; the Chichimecas.

CULTURAL EXPERIENCE

Bernal was build by the Spanish conquerors in 1642 to host the third largest monolith on earth, which rises from its center and is believed to radiate healing energy to the visitors and inhabitants of the town. Due to its history and supernatural powers, the local Otomí-Chichimeca community consider the Peña de Bernal as the "guardian of a sacred territory". The monolith is the year-round the site for a variety of traditional rituals and ceremonies.

Bernal's streets host a series beautiful colonial buildings and churches dating from the eighteenth and nineteenth century that retain architectural styles of outstanding beauty. During this Getaway you will have the opportunity to soak in the town's history while walking its pebbled streets and visiting its charming craft shops and cafes.

Here, we will cross rivers and climb massive piles of rocks. The lowest point of this run is at 1,161 meter above sea level while the highest point is at 1,390 m. The route will take you through the canyon and well as above it where you will have the opportunity to enjoy the best views this site can offer.

On the third day we will run a 9km route on the outskirts of town. This will be an easier run with incredible views of the village and the 1,421 ft tall Peña de Bernal monolith.

FAQ

 

WHAT IF I’M NOT PHYSICALLY FIT ENOUGH FOR THIS EXPERIENCE?

It is very important to emphasize here that these experiences aren’t races or competitions, but rather opportunities to get away from the noise of urban life and to connect with oneself in nature. That being said, worry not, because the minimum required level of fitness is to be able to walk well, both uphill and downhill. We usually divide into sub-groups according to the level of fitness and each group is assigned a local guide who is very familiar with the route. Furthermore, there will always be a guide who stays behind the last participant of the last group, so that we make sure no one is left behind.

 

WHAT IF I HAVE NEVER RUN TRAIL BEFORE?

The Aire Libre Team, as well as most of our local guides, have extensive experience running trail, so there will be many opportunities to share relevant information and knowledge. In fact, if this is your first time, we are genuinely thrilled for you, because a truly amazing world of memorable landscapes and deep discovery is waiting for you. Moreover, the pace of our journeys is usually easy and includes frequent rest stops, so you can take your time in getting acquainted with the local terrain.
