Subject: The Jungle Ultra 2012
A new event has been launched for the multi-day ultramarathon circuit. The Jungle Ultra is a 230km 6 stage race from 900ft up in the cloud forests of Peru down to the Amazon rain forest below. The race takes in several cultural points of interest with indigenous villages dotted along the way. Indeed this race has in part been set up to raise national and international awareness of a little know yet important area known as the Cultural Zone.
With logging and conservation a priority we are helping to build this area in to a go to destination for holiday makers and back packers alike. The race winds it’s way through tough jungle trails, river beds, mountain roads and tribal trails – a truly unique and tough race.
For 2012 US based Salomon ultrarunner Drew Bock and UK World Record ultra athlete Mimi Anderson have already given themselves the ultimate challenge by confirming their place. This is a race for runners that want something different, for those that demand more from their race experience.
Race Director Wes Crutcher is always on hand to answer any questions you may have.
