Self-sufficient stage race in deep primary rainforest. Lots of steep elevation, river and swamp crossings. Includes night stage.

Jungle Marathon is an extreme footrace that takes place in the Amazon Rainforest in Brazil, in the protected Tapajos National Forest.

The Jungle Marathon race was set up in response to the overwhelming desire of many ultra race runners for a new challenge through an extreme environment. The race has been voted by CNN as “The World’s Toughest Endurance Race”. The race¬†will test the stamina and endurance abilities of any competitor. Racing through the Amazon Rain Forest, or the Jungles of Vietnam is a challenge that offers a unique experience to both competitors and organisers alike.

The course, which includes swamps, river crossings, steep climbs and descents, village trails and fluvial beaches, combined with humidity and scorching temperatures makes it a daunting and exciting race, but well within the realms of any competitor who has a strong mental mindset.

The race offers 3 distances: a marathon distance of 42km, a 4 stages 127km distance and a 6 stages 254km distance.
