Experience a 230 mile journey into the depths of a historic civilization.

The Maya Mountain Adventure Challenge (MMAC ) 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. On our first trip to Belize in February 2012, we were introduced to the beauty of the Maya Mountains and its people. When we returned in November of 2012, Friends of Conservation and Development (FCD) director, Rafael Manzanero, unlocked for us the secrets of the Chiquibul and the Mountain Pine Ridge and, with them, the possibilities they contained for epic adventure races highlighting the great Maya Mountains and Central America. Join us in 2016 as the course takes participants in uncharted and unseen territory as part of the North American Adventure Racing Series.

The Maya Mountain Adventure Challenge will be held on February 14th of 2013. Please check out the website to learn more about registration.

Experience a 300 mile journey into the depths of a historic civilization. The Maya Mountain Adventure Challenge (MMAC) has taken on a life of its own.

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. 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 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.
