El Reto de los Misioneros returns to Peru

The second edition of Peru's El Reto de los Misioneros, set for September 20 and 21, will celebrate the 17th century missionary groups that travelled across the nation's mountains and central jungles to reach the current and founding people

The race will feature open men, open women, master A and B categories for up to 120 racers. Like last year, there will be three stages over two days, but the mileage is being increased for 2008. Two 50km stages are set for day one with a queen stage, including three mountain passes, for day two's 80km stage. The race will visit the Andes and the jungle.
