Hi Everyone, As a new edition to the RacingThePlanet Ultramarathon team, I thought I’d blog myself a short hello to you all! I’ve done a couple of the 4Desert races – The Namib Race in 2018 and The Atacama Crossing (Chile) in 2013. For me, the races are incredible. They allow freedom and reason to run long distances without question – and that’s just the training!! They are a fantastic way to see new and relatively undiscovered parts of the world, each race bringing with it its own unique sense of adventure, allowing you to go back to basics with little to no communication and really appreciate the planet for what it is. The races also bring together people from all across the world, like-minded people some of whom will become life-long friends! I’m sure you’ll have questions ahead of the race, this blog site is for exactly that, and also to enable you to get to know your fellow competitors! Preparing for an ultramarathon is half the excitement!!! We are here to answer as many of those questions as we can – maybe you can answer each other’s questions!? I really look forward to hearing how your training is going and what kinds of food you’re going to be bringing…See you in Mongolia!!! Sam
