A challenge in the heart of the largest rainforest in the world. This is what athletes can expect to find at Challenge Amazonia on 20 March 2016. The chosen location is Manaus, capital of Amazonas – the largest and best-preserved Brazilian state.
With two million inhabitants, Manaus is one of the few cities in the world that can combine forest preservation and a high economic development with one of the largest industrial parks in the country, international hotel chains and shopping malls. The historic centre is marked by the beautiful buildings and sumptuous palaces. Among them, the Amazonas Theatre is the ultimate iconic symbol that gave Manaus its fame as the ‘Paris of the Tropics’.
