Sahara Race (Namibia)
April 29 - May 5USD3800
The 4 Deserts is the world’s leading rough-country endurance footrace series. A unique collection of world-class events that take place over 7 days and 250 kilometers in the largest and most forbidding deserts on the planet.
Competitors are challenged to go beyond the limits of their physical and mental endurance. Racing self-supported in the most inhospitable climates and formidable landscapes, they must carry all their own equipment and food and are only provided with drinking water and a place in a tent each night to rest.
The Sahara Race (Namibia) 2018 starts on 29 April and takes place in the beautiful country of Namibia. The race takes place in the Namib Desert in the Skeleton Coast National Park on the coast with the Atlantic Ocean.
Competitors will see a great diversity of scenery and terrain as they complete the 250 kilometer / 155 mile course. This includes running along the beach where the desert meets the Atlantic Ocean and through Seal colonies, through salt pans, past salt lakes which are home to flamingos, through the infamous dunes of the Namib desert, into dry riverbeds where a hint of water gives way to lush green vegetation, past deserted oil and diamond mines and across vast open red desert plains and hills.
