Celebrating 20 Years

 
In February 2022, RacingThePlanet will celebrate 20 years since its founding. As part of the lead up to the celebratory year in 2022, we have put together a book.  "More than a Race" chronicles the history of RacingThePlanet. Starting with the Gobi March in Dunhuang, China and covering the next 65 races over almost two decades, journey through the incredible photographs of our Volunteers, Medical Teams, Local Teams, Media Teams and, of course, some of the more than 10,000 competitors who have joined the races over the years. Read first-hand accounts from competitors, volunteers, medical doctors and staff. Learn about inspirational people, and see highlights of the champions and members of the 4 Deserts Club. Through the photographic lenses of our renowned photographers, see epic stories of survival through sand storms, fierce wind and rain, snow and flooded rivers.
 
The coffee table book features as many group photos from each race as we could, and stunning photos taken by our renowned photographers. We've included as many of our 10,000 alumni in the book as possible.
