Brazilian Folklore is rich in strong characters, and I am one of them! During the challenges, I preserve athletes physical integrity and try to help them not to get lost...

I’ve heard you are all nice people, and that is great. We need people like you in the “sertão”.

Nice to meet you, I’m Curupira!


Many details are necessary to explain the magnitude of this challenge. I only want to congratulate the organizers and hope that next year will be better than this year, but never let this beginning essence get lost. All the best and success for you.


It is more a symbolic desert than a real one, because be or not to be transposable does not depends on geografic reality, but also your strong psicology.


“I believe you have one of the Best routes I have ever been around the world… and I only run half of it!
