RacingThePlanet: The 20-year race


22 – 28 September 2024

RacingThePlanet is excited to announce that its next “Roving Race” will be located in JORDAN. In 2024, RacingThePlanet will celebrate its 20-year anniversary. With three races planned, the Gobi March in Mongolia, the Atacama Crossing in Chile, and RacingThePlanet: The 20-Year Race will each feature special activities and celebrations as we bring together past alumni and welcome new members to the RacingThePlanet Family. Jordan has been specially selected as a location with iconic desert scenery and culture, and we feel that there is no better way to celebrate 20 years than with a finish at the ancient village of Petra. With over 100,000 archaeological sites, only 15 per cent of Jordan has yet to be explored. Competitors will see Petra, Wadi Rum, The Treasury, and other historical sites as they traverse 250 kilometers (155 miles) across this most spectacular desert landscape. As an important bridge between Europe, Asia and Africa, Jordan was specially chosen for this special celebration which will bring together 50 nationalities to celebrate our anniversary.
