Spencer Runs the Jungle Marathon Ultra in aid of The Michael Matthews Foundation

We are thrilled to announce that as of today, the dedicated Spencer has embarked on an awe-inspiring journey to participate in the Jungle Ultra Marathon. This incredible race, which spans the exotic depths of the jungle, promises to be a challenging test of physical and mental endurance. We encourage everyone to rally behind Spencer's remarkable endeavour and contribute to the Michael Matthews Foundation, making a difference in the lives of children around the world.

The Jungle Ultra Marathon is an extraordinary event organised by Beyond the Ultimate, renowned for pushing athletes to their limits. Spanning across the lush rainforests of Peru, this gruelling race covers a staggering distance of 230 kilometres (143 miles) over five stages. With extreme humidity, sweltering t

emperatures, treacherous terrain, and an abundance of wildlife, the Jungle Ultra Marathon truly lives up to its name.

The race takes participants through the heart of the Amazon rainforest, one of the most biodiverse places on Earth. Runners face an array of challenges, including river crossings, steep inclines, slippery mud, dense vegetation, and encounters with exotic creatures. Competitors are required to be self-sufficient, carrying their own food, equipment, and mandatory safety items throughout the race.

Spencer's determination to conquer the Jungle Ultra Marathon is amplified by his commitment to supporting the Michael Matthews Foundation. Founded in memory of his brother, inspiring explorer Michael Matthews. Our organisation strives to provide underprivileged children with access to education, empowering them to break the cycle of poverty and build brighter futures.
