What is
«EXTREME CHALLENGE PERU ULTRA»
This information is only for the ones completing the 5 consecutive days races
This is a 5 day consecutive running race where the participant will be traveling, discovering places and discovering how much your body can endure.
This race brings the past experiences of our ancestors the CHASQUIS who used to run across the SIERRA, DESERT, COAST and JUNGLE.
This race is inviting all the runners of this modern world to travel to the past of our ancestosr the INKAS and enjoy discovering so many beautiful regions of our beautiful land PERU (INKA EMPIRE)
This first edition is not focused so much on your speed but in your endurance, completing the 5 day race.
This race will test how well you are able to adapt to various regions, weathers, terrains and elevations.
This race is the future of the ultra extreme endurance races.
This is an adventurous and semi-assisted race.
This is the only extreme endurance race that will challenge you to run at SIERRA location from 9,160 feet to 11,152 feet of elevation.
This is the only race that will test the participant running at the DESERT on top of the sand dunes and around the beautiful Huacachina Oasis
This race will take you to the COAST starting from the city streets and along the beautiful beach path of Larcomar.
This race will take you to the high JUNGLE elevation, running by the beautiful town of Oxapampa at 5,905 feet elevation.
This is not a regular weekend race.
This race will not have closed streets and you will be responsible for following the traffic laws as well as being responsible for your own safety.
This race is like a military mission where individuals help each other to complete military like missions.
This race is the beginning of a world class event where we plan to invite the strongest military personal of countries around the world for future editions.
  On the next editions this race will consist of teams and/or individuals to compete on their speed and endurance, awarding the fastest team or individual for each location or for the 5 locations.
This race is applying for the Marathon Globetrotters
How I came with this idea?
On May 28, 2016, I was completing my first 100 kilometers Ultra Marathon race in Riverside, California and while I was running for long hours I was thinking how awesome it would be able to run an ultra race in my country Peru, covering different regions from Sierra, Desert, Coast and Jungle.
On October 2, 2016, I completed my first Ultra-Snow Beast Spartan Obstacle race (About 50k and 50 obstacles at 6,224 feet and snow)
On April 2017, I completed my first 140.6 miles triathlon (Swimming 2.4 miles + Cycling 112 miles + Running 26.2 miles)

  1. Minimum of 15 starters and 10 finishers (AKA 15/10). Events that appear to be fixing, stacking, or manipulating the rule by having starters drop to a different distance, too many DNFs in the results, or race directors name in the results, can and will be deemed an unacceptable race.
  2. An official Race Director (AKA the RD).
  3. Official results posted on the race website or timing company website (Athlinks, Racewire, etc).
  4. A common start time with 15 starters. If there is an Early Start, the Early starters and Common starters MAY BE COMBINED. *It is your responsibility to know how many starters are in the race.
  5. **If a race has a Common Start with multiple events of 26.2 and longer, you MAY COMBINE the starters. *ALL races MUST START at the same time.

Fixed Duration Events:

  1. Minimum of 15 starters and 10 finishers (AKA 15/10). NO EXCEPTIONS. Events that appear to be fixing, stacking, or manipulating the rule by having starters drop to a different distance, too many DNFs in the results, or race directors name in the results, can and will be deemed an unacceptable race.
  2. 0-6 hours, a minimum of 26.2 miles must be completed.
  3. 6:01 and above, a minimum of a 50K must be completed.
  4. There must be a system in place (chip, rubber bands, spotters) to count laps. If no system exists, it DOES NOT count.
  5. Any lap/mileage discrepancy must be resolved by the RD at the race. If your Garmin says you ran 31 miles, but the timer says you ran 30 miles, run the extra lap to be safe.
  6. You may start the race late if the RD allows it. Early starts DO NOT COUNT. The concept of a Fixed Duration Event is that there is ample time to complete 26.2/31 miles. *This is a MAJOR DIFFERENCE from a Fixed Distance Race.
  7. **If a race has a Common Start with multiple events of 26.2/6 hrs or longer, you MAY COMBINE the starters. *ALL races MUST START at the same time.

What Does Not Count: This section hopefully answers many questions.

  1. If you have been disqualified for any reason, it DOES NOT COUNT.
  2. If you finish after the official cut off time and are not in the official results, it DOES NOT COUNT.
  3. If you were swept or removed from the course for any reason, it DOES NOT COUNT.
  4. If you are signed up for a 50K, 100K, 50 miler, 100 miler, etc and stop at the 26.2 mark, it DOES NOT COUNT.
  5. Banditing a race DOES NOT COUNT.
  6. Pacing a friend, if you are not a registered runner, DOES NOT COUNT.
  7. If 15 runners start, but only 9 finish, it DOES NOT COUNT.
  8. A Relay DOES NOT COUNT.
  9. A Virtual Race DOES NOT COUNT.

What Does Count: This section addresses some of the finer points.

  1. 1 Event = 1 Race. For example, a 100 mile race COUNTS as 1 race.
  2. If the RD allows you to «drop down» during the race (you were in the 50 miler, but «dropped» to the marathon), and you are in the official results, it DOES COUNT.
  3. If you are an official Pacer (you lead a Pace Group, have a bib, are in the results) it DOES COUNT.
  4. If you complete an IM 140.3 Triathlon (solo), it DOES COUNT.

**NEW for 2018 and Beyond: The Combined Common Starter Rule

Due to the increase in multiple event races, ALL runners may be combined provided ALL RACES start at THE SAME TIME. For example, if an event has a marathon/50K/50miler that starts at 6am, you may count all the starters. DO NOT COUNT any distance under 26.2. Results will be checked.

What does or does not count as an «official» race for
MARATHON GLOBETROTTERS

Marathon Rules

    1. A marathon must be greater than or equal to 26 miles 385 yards (42.195 Km) and an ultra is any distance greater than the marathon distance.
    2. Preferably the route has been distance certified.
    3. If not certified the Race Director must provide documentation as to how the course was measured. At a minimum course must be measured two times using an odometer or GPS and in the event of a discrepancy the longer distance must be used. Trail courses that don’t lend themselves to those forms of measurement must document their good faith effort to meet the marathon distance requirement.
    4. The event shall have a named race director(s) to supervise and take responsibility for the event.
    5. A race organization representative must be present at start and finish to certify the participant’s completion of the distance.
    6. The participant must traverse on foot, or hand cycle or wheelchair (rules and guidelines as defined by International Paralympic Committee) the entire race course.
    7. Event must have had a minimum of 60 days advanced publicity in a running publication, magazine, newspaper, website or race brochure.
    8. Verifiable results must be posted to the general public. E.g. website, newspaper, magazine.
    9. Event must be timed by a non participant.
    10. The event must have a minimum of 10 finishers. If an ultra and a marathon are being held simultaneously, the combined number of finishers meets this rule.

Barkley Marathons Clause: If an event has a low percentage of finishers due to difficulty factors intentionally (e.g. 100K and 100 mile ultras) built into the course, then there must be at least 10 starters.

  1. A marathon shall be run without interruption except for natural events such as a thunderstorm, hail, tornado, downed power line, flooding, rock slide, etc.
  2. If temporarily interrupted by a natural event the marathon can be counted if at least 26 miles 385 yards was ultimately completed, possibly on a diverted course, and continuance is allowed by the race director.
  3. A stage or multi-day event will only count as one event and at least one day’s stage must include a distance of 26 miles 385 yards or greater.
  4. If a participant can register for single stages of a multi-day event then each continuous stage greater than or equal to 26.2 miles can be counted as a marathon.
  5. Completion of at least one 26.2 mile portion of an ultra may be counted as a marathon, if the race director verifies in the results.
  6. Participants shall retain information to substantiate completion of an event, such as: a finisher’s certificate, published event results, medal or completion award.
  7. The event must either start or finish or include 50% of the distance traversed in the country to be counted. A route that runs into two or more countries can only be counted as one. Participant is responsible for providing Race Director written assurance satisfying the 50% rule.
  8. Participant must be registered for the event to count. Guides, ultra distance “handlers”, pacers and bandits may not count the event if they were not assigned bib numbers and published verifiable finish results.
  9. The marathon portion of a triathlon event may be counted as a marathon.
  10. If an event allows an early start, it is the responsibility of the participant to ensure that the race organization correctly represents and verifies the participant’s time. An official timer must be present to record early start.
  11. “Shadow” or “satellite” events will not be counted as proxy to a regular, organized marathon event, but in a separate location. The race must physically occur in the country for which it is being counted.
  12. If you finish after the official closure time of the event, you can still count the event if you appear in race results with a finish time.
  13. Event participants must comply with the APPLICABLE rules of the race organization, respective governing body and local laws. Marathon Globetrotters condemn cheating, the use of IAAF banned substances and the transfer of race entries without the expressed permission of the event management.

Examples of events that caused questions

  1. If a race starts in one country, crosses into another country and returns to the original country it may be counted for the country where the race started and ended or the country that included 50% of the distance.
  2. If a multicountry event is run on a subsequent year, the race may be counted for one of the other countries in the start/end/50% rule.
  3. The Marathon de Sables, which is a multi-day stage race, counts as one event because participants are currently not allowed to run single day stages.
  4. Running a half-marathon twice does not qualify as a marathon event.
  5. Running a 10 Km race four times plus 2.125 Km does not qualify as a marathon event.
  6. Running at least 50 miles of the Umstead 100 counts as an event because the race organization allows participants to count a 50 mile finish once they complete at least 50 miles and less than 100. Likewise for the Javelina Jundred 100K, as opposed to the Javelina Jundred 100.
  7. Timed events (6 hour, 8 hour, 12 hour, 24 hour, 48 hour, etc.) can be counted as one race as long as the individual covers at least 26 miles 385 yards and verifiable results are maintained and/or posted. A runner may not register multiple times, run multiple marathon distances and count the event more than once.
  8. The Hood to Coast Relay cannot be counted as a marathon because the race is not run without interruption.
  9. «Relay for Life” is currently not considered a marathon event since there is no race director to supervise and take responsibility for the event.
  10. If an event is cancelled it will not count.
  11. If an event is cancelled mid-race, it will only count if the participant reached the finish line prior to the cancellation. Examples: 2007 Chicago Marathon (heat), 2010 Country Music Marathon (lightning), 2011 GO! St. Louis Marathon (heat), 2012 Green Bay Marathon (heat), 2013 Boston Marathon (bombing), etc.
  12. If a participant’s run is interrupted prior to completing 26.2 miles and the participant is transported to another location by automobile, train, airplane, etc, then the final distance completed, the race cannot be counted.
  13. If the race organization decides to suspend the race for a short time because of safety issues and then allows runners to continue on the same course or a diverted route, then the race may count. On their own, a participant may not start a race, leave the course and then return to continue.
  14. If you were directed off-course by a volunteer and were not able to complete 26.2 miles it does not count.
  15. Partial completion of an ultra event greater than 26.2 miles counts if the race results verify you completed 26.2 miles or more.
  16. North Pole is not one we will count as a country for the Globetrotters list, weighting factors are: no country, no continent, no government, no land mass, it’s an ocean.
  17. We realize Antarctica is not a country, but its continent status was the reason we decided to count it.
  18. If the event is done entirely on a boat, plane, train, iceberg or sea ice it does not count as a country. We can imagine an event that traverses one of these as a continuous portion of the race in a country (i.e. running up some stairs, through a plane and back out), but have not heard of one yet. Examples: 2001 Last Marathon (boat), North Pole Marathon (sea ice).
