About Namib Race
The Namib Race is a 7-day, 250 km / 155 mile footrace that takes place within the oldest desert and the largest dunes in the world. Through the seven days, competitors experience some of the most stunning and iconic desert landscape. The course takes you through amazing desert scenery including wide-open red plains, scattered mountain outcrops, huge expanses of dramatic sand dunes, moon-like landscape, Atlantic waves crashing against the sandy desert shore-line, and a fascinating array of plants and animals.
