This is the Jungle Ultra, prepare for everything, expect the unexpected. A footrace that takes you through some of the most amazing terrain on our planet, Cloud Forests, Jungles, Amazon Villages and Towns that seem to appear from nowhere. The Jungle Ultra is an extreme 230km ultra marathon from the Andes in to the heart of the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest.
Beginning in Cloud Forest at a height of 10,500ft your race will begin with stunning views of the Amazon before you begin the long descent into the midst of the jungle. You will face temperatures of up to 38°C and humidity levels of 100% as you encounter the tough terrain of the jungle and face the numerous inclines and declines of the course. With over 70 river crossings to cool you down and test your adventurous side, including zip wires, rafts and simply wading through the water, the Jungle Ultra offers you the chance to explore an area so pristine and remote that only BTU and the Jungle Ultra athletes are permitted access alone.
The race is set up in a self-sufficient style, meaning you will also be 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.
With extremely tough conditions and the relentless nature of the jungle, this ultra will test your limits as well as your sense of adventure! Pick the right tools for the job (the Trail Freak of course) and prepare correctly and you'll be duely rewarded.
