Tucked away in one of the most remote corners of Peru lies Manu National Park & Biosphere Reserve. Renowned for its pristine natural beauty and rich biodiversity it can frequently be seen gracing the pages of National Geographic Magazine. Covering vast amounts of Amazon rainforest as well as the Eastern slopes of the tropical Andes there is truly no place on Earth like it! Our grueling ultra starts in the lowland rainforest and then scales the Amazon cloud forest to reach the peaks of the high Andes. The elevation gain from start to finish is 3,115 meters / 10,219 feet. Runners will have to battle different microclimates, dense foliage & wet conditions prior to ascending to the finish line that overlooks the Amazon!
