The format of the course of the Gobi March follows a similar format to all races in the 4 Deserts Race Series - 250 kilometer / 155 mile, 7-day, 6-stage, self-supported endurance footrace. Competitors will go through a variety of terrain and scenery with many highlights along the way. This section includes an overview of the terrain, elevation, distances and checkpoints - the full course notes will be given to each competitor at the competitor check-in in China.

The Gobi March course is located in the Hami region in Xinjiang Province, China. It follows the area of the Ancient Silk Road and is the most diversified course of the 4 Deserts Race Series combining a cooler weather mountain trail race and a hot desert race. The course follows the Tian Shan Mountains, one of the largest mountain ranges in Asia, and it crosses the mountain range on Stage 2. It takes you through Alpine scenery, pastures and yurt villages, river beds, sand dunes, rough Gobi terrain and the sandy Black Gobi Desert famous for its huge stunning sandstone formations. You will also get to experience the colourful culture of the Uyghur, Kazak and Hui ethnic groups who live along the course
