The Gobi March is part of the 4 Deserts series which was named by TIME magazine as the #1 footrace in the world, and as one of the world’s top 10 endurance events. It is a seven-day, six-stage, 250-kilometer / 150-mile footrace across the Gobi Desert of China.

During the 250-kilometer / 150-mile event, competitors must carry their own personal gear, food and clothing in a backpack. The only assistance provided to them is water (plenty) for drinking and making food, tents to sleep in at night, and medical and management support.
