The Last Desert is a 6-stage, 250-kilometer self-supported footrace at the final frontier in Antarctica. This race is only open to those who have completed at least two of the 4 Deserts Race Series events which include the Gobi March in China, the Atacama Crossing in Chile and the Sahara Race (which currently takes place in Namibia). Each individual must carry a minimal amount of safety equipment. Assistance is provided throughout including water (plenty), shelter and medical assistance.

The Last Desert is the only multi-day stage race on the Antarctic continent. It will begin in Ushuaia, Argentina – competitors will travel by ship across the famous Drake Passage to several locations in Antarctica and outlying islands. Besides racing, competitors will experience the unique wildlife in Antarctica, glaciers and are transported by zodiacs to shore each day. This once-in-a-lifetime experience is not only open for competitors, family and friends and also welcomed to join.
