The inaugural GFNY Uruguay is set to take place in the "Saint Tropez of South America" - Punta del Este - on March 6, 2016. With its many beaches, seaside homes, yacht harbour, high-rise apartment buildings, exclusive hotels and glitzy restaurants, "Punta" is South America's most glamorous resort. GFNY Uruguay is offering two distance options: a long route of 112m (182km) with 6,575ft (2004m) of climbing and a short route of 54m (87km) with 2,637ft (804m) of climbing.

While just a few are in the hunt for the overall win, there will be many aiming to finish among the top 10% of finishers in their category to qualify for a racer corral spot at the GFNY Championship in NYC on May 15, 2016.
