Italy – Veneto – Forno di Zoldo

The partly self-sufficient race is run on alpine trails. It has a +3800m of cumulative elevation gain over 53 km. This is a green race, since it uses and adapts only existing facilities in the valley and has no environmental impact.

Australia – Queensland – Birdsville

The route will take you over unchartered parts of the Simpson Desert, including the world’s longest parallel sand dunes and the famous 40-metre high ‘Big Red’. You will not follow any existing tracks or trails and the terrain will vary from red sand dunes, gibber plains, clay pans, salt flats, dry riverbeds and outback scrub.
