DEVIL'S RIDGE

9th September 2017

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. 70 and 25km options are available.

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.
