Weekly Photo Challenge: Achievement

The Weekly Photo Challenge is achievement.

We are preparing for the 4th Annual Fuego y Agua Survival Run on Ometepe Island. Every February, we follow the runners up and down both volcanoes and through jungles. It is a grueling race and most do not finish. However, for those who do survive and finish the race, it is an incredible achievement.

Last February, 47 runners started the race, and only three finished. The winners all received devil masks.
