Devil’s Ridge offers an extreme endurance challenge in the southernmost region of the Gobi Desert. This hidden gem offers a spectacular diversity of colours, vast plateaus and mountains. 60 and 30km options are available.
This year, we are proud to announce the 60km category as a part of the Migu Run Skyrunner World Series.
Devil's Ridge will take runners through stunning sand canyons, past an inactive volcano, straight towards the high snow-capped peaks in the distance. Comparatively moderate elevation gain is more than made up for by the relentless desert heat, continuous exposure to elements, and technical trail sections. All runnable, not all easy. Pure desert grit.
Join the elite runners from the China Mountain Trails team as they explore the Devil’s Ridge course and surrounding areas. The camp is FREE to those who have registered to either the 60km or 30km categories of Devil’s Ridge. Participants may join on any day of the camp. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for your free entry.
A fee of $2,200 HKD will be charged to anyone who does not register for the either the 30km or 60km races.
