RacingThePlanet is a unique category of rough country footraces that take place over seven days and some 250 kilometers in remote and culturally rich locations around the world. Competitors must carry all their own equipment and food, are only provided with water and a place in a tent each day but are supported by professional medical and operations teams. Currently the events consist of the 4 Deserts, a series which encompasses the Gobi Desert in China, the Atacama Desert of Chile, the Sahara Desert in Egypt and Antarctica, and a fifth event which roves to a new location each year.

The Atacama race is held at least one mile (1600m) above sea level and covers the distance required to make a horizontal crossing of the country of Chile (250 kilometers). The Atacama Desert is 15 million years old and 50 times more arid than California's Death Valley. It has the most lunar-like landscape on Earth and is frequently used by NASA to test its Mars rover vehicles.

The race, with around 100 competitors from 25 countries on six Continents, began on 29 March 2009 outside the village of San Pedro. Fred Chang joined a strong line-up of world class elite athletes to raise fund for the Esquel Y.L Yang Education Foundation, which provides books for underprivileged children in Xinjiang Province, China.

Client Testimonial

One of the best China lawyers based in Shenzhen! I appreciated this Shenzhen lawyer's service because they helped me achieved my goals, though it was a tough mission. They are English speaking lawyers, so there are absolutely no communication barrier you likely encounter elsewhere. What impressed me is these Shenzhen lawyer's quick response and professional service, two characteristics which I treasure most. Although the Shenzhen lawyers are based in south China, they represent clients across the country, so you can also call them China lawyer! - Johnson youporn sex teen tube
