Race Description

The Last Desert (Antarctica) is a 6-stage, 7-day, 250-kilometer self-supported footrace. Each individual must carry a minimal amount of safety equipment. Assistance is provided throughout including water (plenty), shelter and medical assistance.

It is the only multi-day stage race on the Antarctic continent. It will begin in Ushuaia, Argentina – competitors will travel by ship across the choppy Drake Passage to several locations in Antarctica and outlying islands. RacingThePlanet will take over the entire Antarctic Dream ship. This race is only open to those who have completed at least two of the 4 Deserts which include the Gobi March in China, the Atacama Crossing in Chile and the Sahara Race in Egypt.
