The Gobi March (Mongolia) 2023 begins on 18 June at the Khar Bukh Balgas Fortress and takes place in the stunning Karakorum region of Central Mongolia.
Competitors will weave their way across wide Mongolian steppes, sand dunes and great rock valleys as they complete the 250-kilometer course. This also includes vast green grasslands, stupas and temples, and old forests. At times, competitors will sleep in traditional Mongolian Gers. The race makes its way across the battlefield of Genghis Khan towards the UNESCO World Heritage Centre of the Orkhon Valley and further to the ancient city of Karakorum.
The Gobi March is an undulating rollercoaster of a ride taking you over every type of terrain and rewards you with the most stunning landscapes and unique cultures. The course is primarily on tracks, trails and off-road and weaves across grassland, fields, soft sand and dunes, rocky terrain, riverbeds, gravel tracks, river crossings, climbs and descents.
RacingThePlanet has donated tents and raised money to support people affected by natural disasters that have occurred in countries where races are held, including major earthquakes in China, Chile, Ecuador and Nepal.
