After a highly successful RacingThePlanet Ultramarathon in Georgia in August 2021, RacingThePlanet will return to Georgia, the Caucasus in June 2022. As part of the famed 4 Deserts Ultramarathon Series, this special edition race will be staged in Georgia to allow those competitors who missed this epic race to take part in this six stage, 250km / 155 miles across the Southern Caucasus Mountain Range in Georgia. The Special Edition: Georgia will count as a qualification race for The Last Desert in Antarctica, and as part of the 4 Deserts Grand Slam and 4 Deserts Grand Slam Plus in 2022 and 2023. Racers in Georgia will experience lush green valleys, stunning National Parks, monasteries from medieval times, and picturesque countryside villages dotted around the mountains.
The Special Edition: Georgia is organised by the 4 Deserts Ultramarathon Series - the most prestigious footrace series in the world, ranked by TIME Magazine as the “World’s Top Endurance Races” and profiled on BBC, ESPN, NatGeo, CNN, ABC, and NBC Sports.
Racers of all levels, ethnicities and ages, from 19 to 73, compete in this self-supported race, carrying their equipment and food on their backs; provided with only water and a place in a tent each night. They are supported by the world’s most skilled professionals, wilderness medical doctors, research fellows and volunteers.
Racers from 100 nations have competed over the last 15-years, including Afghanistan and The Faroe Islands, mingling around RacingThePlanet’s signature campfires with a shared commitment to adventure, authenticity and a refusal to obey limits.
