Distances: 87, 153 km
Difficulty: Difficult terrain with longer, steeper hills
Limited to: 5,000 or less Participants

GFNY Uruguay - Colonia presents two distance options: a long route of 153.2 km and 781 m elevation and a non-competitive medium route of 87.2 km with 670m elevation. The topography does not impose decisive climbs, forecasting a compact peloton through a good part of the race, and a fast race. The usual winds of the Uruguayan coastline may be of key importance on the outcome.

Both courses share the first 45 Km through olive groves, vineyards and cattle country. It's the generous, natural environment of the Uruguay River's East bank, home of several iconic landmarks of the historic heritage of European settlers that set forth the very best dairy production of the region.
