Maya Mountain Adventure Challenge from Aphelion Entertainment on Vimeo.

The race to raise awareness and save Belize’s biodiversity started today Thursday February 13th at the foot of the Cahal Pech Resort in the Cayo District. The Maya Mountain Adventure Challenge (MMAC) is organized by American Adventure Sports with the assistance of various organizations in Belize. 50 participants from around the globe will put to test their stamina, survival skills and endurance over a course of three days in a non-stop competition.

The MMAC will take the 16 teams through a 200 mile journey across various types of terrain including the Maya Mountains and the Chiquibul National Park. The racers will bike, rappel, canoe and trek utilizing their orienteering skills with the limited use of a compass and a map to finish the race. “This particular race is three days and is just under 200 miles. It is non-stop and completely non-supportive. The race just keeps going through the night and day until they cross the finish line. They will face a lot of challenges along their way. It does not only test them on the course but also the elements, eat and sleep deprivation. It is a difficult challenge but very rewarding in the end,” said MMAC Challenge Director Julia Pollock.

One of the photographers for the MMAC put together 100's of pictures from the race last month. He captured pictures from all over Cayo, from downtown San Ignacio to Cahal Pech, to waterfalls and trails in MPR. He captures the essence of the race really well, and he has the music to go with it - 'We Are the Champions' is one of many great songs.

MMAC: Race to Live

The YogaSlackers have released the 4th and final video from their win of the Maya Mountain Adventure Challenge. It chronicals the 3 days and nights of their journey through the Chiquibul and MPR. Lots of great scenery and adventure, and stories, like having to carry their bikes due to there being too much mud. Wonder if they'll be back for the next one.
