The Jungle Ultra will test your endurance as you run 230km through the tough jungle trails, mountain roads and village tracks, making your way from Cloud Forest and down 10,500ft to the Amazon Jungle below. 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 litres of water along the way at check points and base camps.
Join us in Peru for the Jungle Ultra Marathon of a lifetime – no other Jungle Ultra Marathon comes close to the Jungle Ultra.
