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. We're proud to introduce a 100km race this year, in addition to our 60km and 25km events.

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.
