Foreward from Shirley:
"Welcome to the Official Jungle marathon group. Do please tell all your friends about it so that they join too. You dont necessarily need to be a competitor...anyone with an interest in this fantastic race is welcome.."

Following the success of our 2010 edition, and the continued welcome and assistance we have received from the tourist board, ICMBio, IBAMA and the local communities, we will once again be holding our race in the stunning State of Para- often referred to as the Caribbean of the Amazon.

Our competitors will have the choice of two distances: 220km or 100km, which will be completed in stages throughout the week. The longer distance will include six stages and the shorter will include four.

Runners will once again be self-sufficient. They will be required to carry their foods and provisions during the race and we will provide them with bottled water at designated checkpoints.

Nights will be spent sleeping in hammocks at campsites along the shores of the Tapajos river. Competitors will be required to provide their own hammocks which should include a mosquito net and rain fly sheet.

Come and join us from October 3rd- 12th 2013 and be part of this incredible adventure.
