Namibia means Vast Place. The sand dunes of the Namib Desert and the famous Skeleton Coast are perhaps 2 of the most photographed landscapes in the World – in equal part alluring, evocative, mysterious and foreboding. In the ancient expanse of the Namib Naukluft desert, endless skies merge with towering dunes for hundreds and hundreds of miles. Nothing else. Just sand and sky. And then at the coast, the Atlantic breakers come crashing onto the shore amid colonies of 1000s of seals, rolling in on the cold seas of the Benguela Current all the way from Antarctica.

Join us as we journey there again; this time with an intrepid group of Rat Racers covering 300km on fat-bikes and foot to reach the Bohlen, from the source of the Kuiseb River and over the Sand Dune sea of the Namib Naukluft National Park. Special permissions have been obtained to make the first-ever multi-sport crossing of this ancient landscape on a route that promises a quite extraordinary palette of terrains, vistas and an objective so eerie and unusual you will be quivering with delight for time eternal. This is Race to the Wreck.
