The four driest, windiest, hottest, and coldest desert on earth. The Atacama in Chile, The Gobi in China, the Sahara in Africa, and the “Last Desert” in Antarctica.
These are the locations for the Racing the Planet’s 4 Deserts Ultra marathon series, rated by Time magazine as one of the most challenging endurance competitions in the world.
Each of the four races covers more than 150 miles - the equivalent of running six marathons in five days, over extreme and diverse terrains with temperatures ranging from over 120 degrees Fahrenheit to 30 degrees below zero.
The people you will meet on this video will attempt to run, walk, or crawl their way across all four deserts, carrying everything they need- clothes, food, water, medical supplies, sleeping gear - in a single backpack, pushing their bodies and minds to the very limits of human endurance.
Do they have what it takes to survive the 4 Deserts?
Juice Plus+® is an important part of their survival kit.
We met Steve Birkinshaw at Keswick Mountain Festival 2014. Inspired by legendary fell runner (and Lakeland farmer) Joss Naylor MBE, Steve’s running all 2014 Wainwrights to raise money for two multiple sclerosis charities. He’s aiming to beat the record Joss Naylor set in 1987 - 7 days and 1 hour.
Steve is supporting two MS charities - The Samson Centre and The MS Society. Visit his blog to sponsor and track his route from Saturday 14th June 2014 > stevebirkinshaw-wainwright2014.blogspot.co.uk
Featuring Sir Ranulph Fiennes OBE and Joss Naylor MBE.
We hear the word ‘adventure’ all the time nowadays. What does it really mean? Is it an overused word, another way to follow a crowd? We say life is all about our adventurous ideas. They’re what take us somewhere new, what make us unique.
This film was made during Keswick Mountain Festival. We interviewed world-renowned mavericks and adventurous spirits, to share their stories with you. Look out for further extended interviews with Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Joss Naylor and Rob Fraser, coming soon.
