Breaking News:  The Last Desert 2014 was formally closed last night (Tuesday, 11 November local time) when the M/V Plancius sailed into the Beagle Channel and the Awards Banquet took place on board the expedition ship before continuing to Ushuaia where competitors disembarked to head to their homes around the planet.

Chema Martinez from Spain and Isis Breiter from Mexico were crowned the winners of The Last Desert and 4 Deserts Champions for 2014.

2nd places went to Ralph Crowley of United States and Beatriz Garcia Berche from Spain for the women, while 3rd place was won by James Edwards and Monique Muhlen.

In the team category the Old Misfits took 1st place with 2nd and 3rd places going to Grand Slammers the 3 Amigos and Corre 1km+ respectively (with team members aged 65, 46 and 29).

Megan Stewart from New Zealand was nominated as the receiver of the Spirit Award and Etsuji Otsuka from Japan with the Sportsmanship.

44 competitors from 21 countries were presented with the 4 Deserts medal as they joined the 4 Deserts Club - 19 of whom did so by completing the Grand Slam. And Paul Borlinha became the 3rd person in the world to have completed all 5 races organised by the 4 Deserts Race Series in one year. In total 11 records were set and three new countries are represented in the 4 Deserts Club (Poland, Thailand and the Philippines).

More than fifty competitors are competing in The Last Desert (Antarctica) 2010.  Each individual has had to successfully complete two of the other 4 Deserts (Gobi March, Sahara Race and/or Atacama Crossing) to qualify for a place.  The results below are listed according to kilometers completed.  The individuals and teams who complete the most kilometers will be the winners of The Last Desert 2010.  The table is shown below.  To see past results, click here.

Competitors will be ranked as Active (A),  Incomplete (I), Unranked (U), Withdrew (W) or Did Not Start (DNS).  "Active" (A) means that the competitor has completed all sections of the course to date.
"Incomplete" (I) means that the competitor has not yet completed the current stage and so is still on the course.  "Unranked" (U) means that the competitor has not completed all sections of the course but is still continuing – unranked competitors will not receive an overall time or a medal, but will receive times for all stages that they do complete.  "Withdrew" (W) means that the competitor has withdrawn from the race and will not continue with any stages of the course.
