Teams will do battle in the heat and dust of Mongolia Land Rover
Do you have the mental and physical strength to enter the ultimate global race? If so, there is still time to enter the Land Rover G4 Challenge, the adventure of a lifetime that combines off-road driving with mountain biking, kayaking, abseiling, climbing and orienteering across some of the most remote and extreme terrain in the world.
The selection process is currently underway to choose one man and one woman to represent the UK in the competition. The successful two-strong British team will then battle against teams from 17 other countries over the gruelling three-week Challenge Finals in one of the most sparsely populated independent country on the planet – Mongolia. A blend of terrain offering arid steppes, mountains and the extreme climate of one of the world's largest deserts, the Gobi, makes Mongolia the ultimate physical and mental test.
The 2008/09 Land Rover G4 Challenge programme is run in support of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. This partnership aims to generate in excess of £1m over the course of the next two challenges. In addition to this, each participating nation will be raising funds in aid of their National Society. The winning team will receive a Land Rover to donate to their National Society.
