Distanza Ultramaratona

Informazioni The Jungle Ultra

This is the Manu National Park, deep in the Amazon Rainforest, an unspoiled expanse of boiling jungle and breath-taking cloud forest running from the Andes mountains to the Madre de Dios River.  It’s lowlands are only accessible by boat and it’s impenetrable nature has been both the reason so many are attracted to it’s dark undergrowth and the reason it has remained so well preserved.

You’re standing above the clouds looking down a massive valley along which a single track road winds through a sea of green.  The clouds boil and roll across the canopy below and the air around you is thin enough to double the effort required to move.  Soon you will descend down into the UNESCO world heritage site below and make your way through 230km of sweltering jungle, choked with mud and humidity, broken by river crossing after crossing.

Runners should expect choking humidity; the body pouring sweat in an effort to stay cool.  There will be deep mud and heavy rain.  There may also be periods spent running in darkness, following the marked route by head torch.

As a self-sufficient race, you are responsible for carrying your entire kit, including food, safety equipment and a minimum of 2.5 litres of water which can be refilled at checkpoints along the stages.  You’ll need some specialist gear to take on the hostile rain forest.

This is the Jungle Ultra.

Panoramica

Peru’s Jungle Ultra is mostly downhill, dropping 10,500 feet from the cloud forest down into the Amazon over its 142.6-mile course. The five-stage, self-supported race winds its way through utterly remote terrain. Along the way, participants wet their feet in 70 tropical rivers and streams, in some cases zip-lining over them.
