"The course of the Sahara Race 2014 takes competitors across 250 kilometers (approximately 155 miles) of stunning desert terrain in the country of Jordan. Over seven days, competitors will cross four distinct deserts (Wadi Rum, Kharaza, Humaima and Wadi Araba) and finish in the ancient city of Petra. The terrain will vary between sand, sand dunes, dirt / rock track and grasses and navigate canyons, river beds, valleys and local villages in areas seeped in Jordanian culture and history. "
RacingThePlanet is a unique category of rough country footraces that take place over seven days and some 250 kilometers in remote and culturally rich locations around the world. Competitors must carry all their own equipment and food, are only provided with water and a place in a tent each day but are supported by professional medical and operations teams. RacingThePlanet is international; the events typically involve competitors from over 20 different countries who are able to mingle around the campfires and in their geographically mixed tents. Currently the events consist of the 4 Deserts, a series which encompasses the Gobi Desert in China, the Atacama Desert of Chile, the Sahara Desert in Egypt and Antarctica, and a fifth event which roves to a new location each year.
