Home to the oldest desert and the largest dunes in the world Namibia has some of the most stunning and iconic desert landscape.

Special permission has been granted to the 4 Deserts Race Series to hold the Sahara Race in the Skeleton Coast National Park. It is held around the Torra Bay area - about 300km / 196 miles north along the coast from the host town of Swakopmund.

The desert scenery includes, wide open red plains, scattered mountain outcrops, huge expanses of dramatic sand dunes, moon-like landscape, Atlantic waves crashing against the sandy desert shore-line, ship wrecks littering the coast line and a fascinating array of plants and animals, many of which are endemic to the area as a result of the age of the desert.

Competitors will see a great diversity of scenery and terrain as they complete the 250 kilometer / 155 mile course. This includes running along the beach where the desert meets the Atlantic Ocean and through Seal colonies, through salt pans, past salt lakes which are home to flamingos, through the infamous dunes of the Namib desert, into dry riverbeds where a hint of water gives way to lush green vegetation, past deserted oil and diamond mines and across vast open red desert plains and hills.
