JUNGLE ULTRA MARATHON, PERU
Discover South-America by running from The Andes to the Amazon.
The Jungle Ultra will test your endurance as you run 230K on tough jungle trails, mountain roads and village tracks, making your way from Cloud Forest and down 10,500ft to the Amazon Jungle.
You will experience the virgin forests, diverse wildlife and numerous tribes of the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest as you complete this 5 stage event.
As you are in the jungle you will face humidity levels reaching near 100%, making sweating useless in maintaining your core body temperature, leaving you saturated for extended periods of the race, and indeed when you finally reach camp.
For the race itself you will be self-sufficient carrying your own hammock, sleeping bag, food and supplies for the entire race, replenishing your (minimum) 2.5 liters of water along the way at check points and base camps.
The 230km race distance is split into 5 stages with a maximum of 6 days to complete the challenge.
There are checkpoints every 10 to 15K providing water and aid.
