Namib Race (Namibia) [RacingThePlanet]


The Namib Race

The Namib Race 2021 starts on 01 May and takes place in the beautiful country of Namibia. The race takes place in the Namib Desert in the Erongo region and within the Namib-Naukluft National Park. The race finishes close to Swakopmund which is our host town for the event.

This is a true desert race you will see real desert landscapes. You will be treated to the full spectrum that a desert has to offer, and will see diverse scenery and terrain as you complete the 250 kilometer / 155 mile course. This includes running into the Namibian ‘Moon Valley’, traversing salt pans, crossing a nearby ostrich farm, passing salt lakes which are home to flamingos, and running over the infamous dunes of the Namib desert and into dry riverbeds where a hint of water gives way to lush green vegetation.
