For those of you that followed my last blog in 2015, i had signed up to Beyond the Ultimate’s Jungle ultra 2016, unfortunately i had to have my knee reconstructed in Nov 2015 so couldn’t run, Richard went with his client Dale, smashed it and i transferred my place to 2018. Clearly the call of the jungle is strong as Richard has re-entered as well.
So what is the Beyond the Ultimate jungle ultra?
The Jungle Ultra Marathon is a 5 day endurance event over 5 days through the Amazon rainforest and the section we will be running is through Peru. The total distance is 230km / 143 miles, with humidity reaching near 100%
It is going to be an amazing experience not to be missed, i will be updating this blog along the way and have some great runs as preparation along the way.
