On the 4th June this year, our very own Simon Blair will be donning his best jungle gear to take part in Hope for Children’s adventure challenge ‘Jungle Ultra Marathon’! Based in Peru, Over 5 days Simon will be running 230km through the jungle trails, mountain roads and village tracks, making his way from Cloud Forest and down 10,500ft to the Amazon Jungle below. On his back Simon will be carrying everything that over the 5 days he has to wear, sleep in and eat, the only thing he will be provided with will be top ups of water.
This will be a true test of strength and endurance where Simon will experience the virgin forests and come into contact with diverse wildlife as well as the numerous tribes of the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest as he completes this gruelling 5-stage event.
