WHY THE DESERT CHALLENGE? 

 

Our race series offers something unique in the world of ultra-distance running. Over 1500 Km of rugged desert terrain in 5 different magnificent deserts across the world.

 

Unlike a one-day race your first race is just the beginning and each race is more than just a day of racing. It is a 7-day race and adventure experience covering at least 300 k in each desert and running in or seeing some of the most amazing landmarks in each.

 

In Oman and Jordan you will have 5-star bivouac/desert camps. You will also be staying at 5 star resorts before and after each race. In Oman it you will stay at the Majan Hotel 5* and In Jordan at the MovenPick Resort Hotel on the Dead Sea  5 star

 

You will spend anywhere from 75-100 hours on the race route and be racing at your pace and stopping where and when you like. The camps and aid stations are there to support you along with the race organization but ultimately you go at your own pace to cover the distance.

 

This is only one of the many reasons why this series is so extraordinary.

MULTI DAY AND NON STOP RACES 

  •  TranSahariana - The Desert Challenge -A race series and awe-inspiring adventure like no other, taking you across the world and into the heart of 5 great deserts and on hill trails and footpaths known only to locals.

     

    300k from start to finish for each race which means those who rise to the challenge will face 1500k of desert running with 30-40% of terrain being in high dunes. Many of the races begin or finish at the sea. You will also run through amazing places.

     

    The beauty of this format is that you can race at your own pace day and night but there will still be the opportunities to spend time in the company of other runners at camps throughout.

     

    TranSahariana promises to be unforgettable in terms of the distance, the adventure and the terrain.
