Some people say that walking through the Gobi Desert inspires awe by its never ending sanddunes; others say it is the incredible beauty of desert’s starry night. You may ask a thousand people about their perspective and you will receive a thousand different answers.
Challenge the Gobi Desert through the historical city of Dunhuang. Climb up the slopey sanddunes of the Desert, walk the dried out riverbeds, marvel at the never ending landscape while paying respects to the ancient monuments of the silk road. Come use your two feet and write your very own desert story at Dunhuang.

What is SUPERACE?
Kevin Lin, a well Known ultra marathon runner and entrepreneur from Taipei, Taiwan. He is the first modern Asian athlete, who success crossing 7,500 km Sahara Desert, and 10,000 km of Silk Road.
“I had always wanted to provide athletes of all levels the same wonderful experiences I used to have in ultramarathons. Aside from experiences at events, SUPERACE athletic gear hopes to incorporate and creating from the user’s vision. Bringing more unique design elements, and also convey the concept of environmental protection that I have always been concerned about. I hope that SUPERACE can represent more than sports and dreams, but also give some helps to the lack of our earth resources.” --by Kevin Lin
