The 4 Deserts is a series of seven-day, 250-kilometer (150 mile) self-supported footraces across the largest and most forbidding deserts on Earth including the Gobi in China, the Atacama in Chile, the Sahara in Egypt and Antarctica. Each of these deserts is completely unique and in every race you find yourself immersed in ancient cultures surrounded by stunning scenery and indigenous wildlife. The 4 Deserts will take you on a journey through the driest, hottest, coldest and windiest places on earth which will test your limits both mentally and physically. You will leave the race as part of a new family -- individuals and teams from distant corners of the earth from different backgrounds, religions and cultures bonded together by a common mindset and a shared experience like no other. The 4 Deserts series is a world class sporting event open to anyone who is ready for the journey of a lifetime.
