“I’ve never in my racing career seen so many little climber/technical icons in one race overview in my life. There are 12 technical bits in this race – from “wet canyons”, to rappels, 3 caves, rope ascents and even actual roped rock climbing. Am I dreaming?! This is gonna be awesome!”  Jason Magness, EEUU After looking the race overview

“The magnitude of the towering mountains and bottomless canyons were unlike anything we have ever experienced.” CrossFit Fort Vancouver, EEUU y Canadá

“La Ruta Madre AR and Nuevo Leon have made a big and very positive impression on adventure racers around the world!” – Rob Howard, ARWS Social Media Manager

“Wow. We just can’t get over the views in this race.” – Bend Racing, EEUU

“Congratulations, you guys delivered something special!” – Alex Provost, Canada

“All the canyons are amazing. It’s not stuff that we see in Canada or in any other races we have been. It’s really a signature for the race. It was all very impressive.” – Alex Provost, Canadá

“The race included lots of technical trekking and mountain biking, but what really made La Ruta Madre unique was the canyoneering and caving: rappelling, ascending, jumping, sliding, swimming, hiking, crawling, and climbing up and down iconic canyons and caves were a staple of the race from start to finish.” – CrossFit Fort Vancouver, EEUU y Canadá

“…what left the most lasting impression were the Mexican people themselves. The generosity, compassion, and grace of the people we met absolutely blew us away time and time again…” – CrossFit Fort Vancouver, EEUU y Canadá
