“Imagine you’re lost in a massive desert, hundreds of miles from civilisation, driving a car your granny would be embarrassed by. Then all of a sudden all your wheels fall off and the search for tools turns up a dirty sock and two dried apricots. That’s the Mongol Rally – 10,000 miles of pure adventure over mountains, deserts and some of the most remote terrain on the planet.”
We are a team in the 2013 Mongol Rally, travelling 10000 miles to raise money for Sue Ryder Care, Macmillan Cancer Support and the official charity of the rally which is Cool Earth! You can check The Adventurists charity page to see how money raised has been previously spent!
To get you all interested here is a description of the rally by the guys that run it:
“Your chances of being seriously injured or dying as a result of taking part are high. Individuals who have taken part in previous Adventurists’ adventures have been permanently disfigured, seriously disabled or lost their life.
This is not a glorified holiday. It’s an unsupported adventure and so by its very nature extremely risky. You really are on your own and you really are putting both your health and life at risk. That’s the whole point.”
