The Mongol Derby - Mongolia - 8-8-18 - 1000kms - 25 ponies - 10 days. In August 2018 I will be in Mongolia. A long held dream now being fulfilled. While I’m there I will be competing in The Mongol Derby - 1000 kms on 25 horses across the Steppe in under 10 days. The Mongol Derby is based on Chinggis Khaan's postal system, used to relay messages at speed from the furthest corners of the empire. The Mongol Derby rebuilds this network to stage one of the most ambitious equine events in history. With 42 riders from around the world, the race is billed as the world’s longest and toughest horse race. We can carry 5kg of gear, the horses are a little wild and we find our way using a gps and maps. More details are found here: www.mongolderby.com I hope you will assist in my fundraising target of £1500.
