Between 1 and 10 October 2015 two Jersey athletes, Pete Wright and Steve Hayes, will be taking on one of their toughest challenges to date, the Jungle Marathon. The Jungle Marathon takes place in the state of Para in Brazil’s Amazon jungle. This extreme marathon covers 254km which is completed in six stages throughout the week. Competitors are required to carry their own food and equipment for the week, and nights are spent sleeping in hammocks at checkpoint campsites along the shores of the river. The difficulty of the Jungle Marathon is not measured by its distance but by its terrain where competitors encounter challenges such as extreme humidity, mud, water crossings and insects that test them physically and mentally.
