The only prerogative to participate: you need to carry food (canned food, rice and long-life food) in your backpack, which are then sent to the Mato Grosso Operation missions in Peru. The male participants have to carry a quantity of food equal to 10% of their body weight, while for the female participants the weight is reduced to 8%. The first edition was organized in May 2016 and immediately gained the interest of many runners but also of simple mountaineers who share the same desire to donate.
