Challenging competitions to enter while travelling the world by superyacht

3 of 6 3/6

The Jungle Marathon


The competition: The Jungle Marathon is the world’s wildest eco race and gives competitors the opportunity to combine extreme sport with eco tourism whilst exploring this spectacular, remote part of the world.

The event, which takes place in Manu National Park deep in the Amazon Rainforest, offers three distances, the shortest being a marathon. Competitors can also enter a four-stage 127km and a six-stage 245km race. The courses include running over a range of challenging terrains including swamps, thick jungle undergrowth, river crossings and steep climbs. The brave runners who enter this extreme race should expect to run through scorching temperatures and up to 99 per cent humidity.

The prize: Competitors will celebrate the end of the challenge with a prize giving dinner and race wrap party.

The cost: £2,500

How to get there: Participants will have to make their way to the village of Alter do Chão, just a 40 minute drive away from Santarém International Airport. Alternatively, follow in the footsteps of Cindy Crawford and embark on a private Amazonian cruise on board a luxury riverboat, or incorporate the event into your itinerary when discovering Brazil on a superyacht.
