August 1, 2018

This Thursday, August the 2nd, I will be flying out to Mongolia to fulfill my dream of completing the Mongol Derby, a 1000 km (621 miles) multi-horse race across the Mongolian Steppe.

The race follows the tradition of Chinggis Khaan’s postal system, which he used to control the largest land empire ever to have existed, in the 12th century.

The starting gun will fire on the 8th of August and the last riders must finish the by the 17th so 10 days in total.

I will be one of 43 riders from all over the globe to compete this year – 18 men and 25 women ranging in age from 18 to 70, and just about as diverse as you can imagine. // read more >
