Aderire Jungle Marathon

Jungle Marathon is an extreme footrace that takes place in the Amazon Rainforest in Brazil, in the protected Tapajos National Forest.

The Jungle Marathon race was set up in response to the overwhelming desire of many ultra race runners for a new challenge through an extreme environment. The race has been voted by CNN as "The World's Toughest Endurance Race". The race will test the stamina and endurance abilities of any competitor. Racing through the Amazon Rain Forest, or the Jungles of Vietnam is a challenge that offers a unique experience to both competitors and organisers alike. 

Discover a spectacular part of these countries and see first-hand the wonders of nature.Jungle Marathon takes place in a remote and potentially dangerous environment. With swamp and river crossings, temperatures averaging over 100 degrees Fahrenheit with 99 percent humidity, and dangerous wildlife, there’s no question that the race is dangerous.Apart from the dangers of the jungle itself, where runners may be exposed to snakes, wild animals and poisonous plants, there is  also going to be a hot, humid environment. Heat exhaustion, dehydration and problems with salt/electrolyte balance are real dangers. 

The organisers take safety very seriously and make every effort to minimise risk, but runners are encouraged to be aware of the potential hostilities and ensure that they have fully considered these points before proceeding with entry.The Jungle Marathon offers three races: a marathon, which is the shortest version of the race; a 4 stage 127km race and a 6 stage 254km race. 

The course, which includes swamps, river crossings, steep climbs and descents, village trails and fluvial beaches, combined with humidity and scorching temperatures makes it a daunting and exciting race, but well within the realms of any competitor who has a strong mental mindset.Jungle Marathon, the world's wildest eco race, gives competitors the opportunity to combine sport and eco-tourism and experience this stunning part of the world.Yes, physical fitness is a requirement  but if you don’t have strong mental tenacity to combine with it then you will struggle to reach the finish.
