DEVIL'S RIDGE

7th  September 2019

LOGO_SKYRUNNER_COUNTRY_SERIES_CHINA_CMYK_POSITIVE.jpg

Devil’s Ridge offers an extreme endurance challenge in the southernmost region of the Gobi Desert. This hidden gem offers a spectacular diversity of colours, vast plateaus and mountains.

Devil's Ridge will take runners through stunning sand canyons, past an inactive volcano, straight towards the high snow-capped peaks in the distance. Comparatively moderate elevation gain is more than made up for by the relentless desert heat, continuous exposure to elements, and technical trail sections. All runnable, not all easy. Pure desert grit.

Travel & Accommodation

Participants will generally fly into Jiayuguan Airport (Gansu Province, China) and bus/bullet train to Yumen. The airport is served by various carriers from Beijing, Xi’an and Lanzhou airports. Jiayuguan airport is about an hour and a half drive from Yumen City, the race base.

The following locations have been translated in the event you need to show them to a taxi driver. Most participants arriving in Jiayuguan will get the bullet train from Jiayuguan South Station to Yumen Station:

  • Jiayuguan Airport (嘉峪关机场)

  • Jiayuguan South Station (嘉峪关南站)

  • Yumen Station (玉门站)

 

Two hotels we recommend in Yumen are as follows: 

Both of these hotels are located close to Yumen Sports Centre (the location participants will meet on the morning of the race before taking the shuttle to the respective race start points).
