Peru Jungle Ultra

Jungle Ultra travels through the Amazon rainforests and is considered one of the most challenging stage races in the world. Jungle Ultra is 230 km long over five stages and requires participants to carry everything they need to survive a week in the jungle. This includes a backpack with sleeping bag, hammock with mosquito net and roof. In addition, food comes to a minimum of 2,000 calories per day, and a few liters of water in bottles that are replenished at checkpoints along the way three times a day. Participants should also have some vaccines against everything from malaria, rabies to hepatitis - as well as submit a fresh ECG report and a medical assessment.

What I like extra good The Jungle Ultra and the organizer is their support and support to local communities where the competitions are organized.

Sove ute i hengekøye

Dette var et løp hvor hengekøye med myggnetting som beskyttelse mot malariamygg og andre kryp var et krav fra løpsledelsen. Jeg kunne knapt nok forestille meg hvordan det kunne bli behagelig å sove i en «bananformet seng».
