Maya Mountain Adventure Challenge -Belize’s most exciting competition
Belize has the perfect event for adventure enthusiasts from all around the world. The 2016 Maya Mountain Adventure Challenge in Belize is an epic competition and is as fierce as the Belizean jungles in which the four-day race takes place.
Belize provides the perfect setting for an action adventure race. Set in the Maya mountains in the lush tropical jungles of Belize, co-ed groups of four compete for 3 days and 3 nights traversing more than 220 miles of the Maya mountains.
Competitors will spend the three days Mountain biking, trekking, orienteering, canoeing, rappelling and spelunking. The epic race starts and ends in San Ignacio Town, nestled in the foothills of the Maya mountains, serving as the gateway to adventure.
The competition showcases the very best of what Belize has to offer nature and adventure enthusiasts all over the world. Sprawling valleys, exotic wildlife, fresh pure rivers, breath-taking scenery, ancient Mayan ruins, off-beaten trails and untouched cave systems become the backdrop for the epic race to the finish.
Rafael Manzanero, Friends for Conservation and Development (FCD) executive director said there is another part of Belize that is rarely seen, the Maya mountains, and the FCD challenges people to come and see what this country is really all about.
The 2016 race begins on February 20th. “The Maya Mountain Adventure Challenge has taken on a life of its own. What started as a typical adventure race production has developed into a testament of one of the last truly unspoiled corners of the world,” Julia Pollock, director of the competition said.
