Why Run It?

What to Expect

With all the desert stage races going on, the Jungle Marathon offers a much-needed dose of geologic diversity to ultrarunners. Now, when you’re choosing where to run 250 kilometers in 100°F, you can opt for the dry heat of the desert or 99% humidity in the Amazon.

"Wild rejoice in jungles not in cages."

-Pushpa Rana

If you decide to take on the Jungle Marathon, get ready to get wet, and maybe face off against piranhas. There are multiple swamp and river crossings, many so deep you have to swim across. It’s definitely not a race for the faint of heart.
