About the Race

WHY RUN IT?

There’s something magical about running on the Mongolian Steppe, in the footsteps of nomadic herders and Mongol conquerors. Facing its competitors up against extreme changes in temperature, sandstorms, and technical terrain, the Gobi March is ultrarunning at its finest – brutal, yet beautiful, allowing plenty of room for self-discovery.

“The desert tells a different story every time one ventures on it.”

- Robert Edison Fulton, Jr.

Between deserts and grasslands, mountains and lakes, Mongolia has endless natural beauty to discover. But its unique culture is what draws most travelers in. If you can stay into July after the race, head over to the famous Naadam Festival, where Mongolian traditions are on full display with competitions in archery, wrestling, and horseback riding.
