About Brazil 135 Ultramarathon

The Brazil 135 is held in the Serra da Mantiqueira mountains (a sub-range of the Andes Cordillera) in the state of Minas Gerais. This lush mountain range separates Rio de Janeiro from Minas Gerais state and is one of few ramaining areas with the extensive Mata Atlantica ( Atlantic Coastal Rainforest) in southeastern Brazil. It is dotted with pretty little towns and national and state parks.

Considered the most difficult foot race in Brazil, it is run on the hardest, most challenging segment of the Caminho da Fé (Path of Faith or Way of Faith), the most difficult Brazilian pilgrimage path. The primary objectives of the Caminho da Fé pilgrimage are the experience of moments of reflection and faith through the exercise of walking – the integration of man with nature and with religion.

Highlights

Caminho da Fé (Path of Faith or Way of Faith)

Overview

The Brazil 135 was inspired “in concept and in spirit” by the Badwater 135 in Death Valley, California. Finishing the solo event in under 48 hours is included in the qualifying standards for entry into Badwater because it’s part of the Badwater World Cup, an international series of 135-mile races held in exotic locations under extreme conditions.

The race is held in the Serra da Mantiqueira Mountains, a sub-range of the Andes Cordillera, in the state of Minas Gerais. The Caminho Da Fé is a route marked by yellow arrows and consists of stretches of dirt roads, forests, waterfalls, asphalt, trails within farms and railroad tracks.
