Mongol 100 the most surreal, audacious and hauntingly beautiful adventure challenge known to Man. The objective is to traverse the entirety of the lake from north to south, by any means Foot, skate or bike. It is also the inaugural journey in the brand-new Rat Race Bucket List Series of global adventures.

This challenge is open to all comers. It is hard; make no mistake. Perhaps the hardest thing you will ever take on. Not just because of the physical challenge. It is cold. Very very cold. That cold will test everyone; whoever you are and however capable you are. But our mantra is for you to get to the start line and we will help you get to the end. And in so doing achieve something extraordinary.

Rat Race is the UKs largest and most respected adventure event operator. We have catered to over 1 000 000 customers in nearly 15 years of operation. The 100 will, of course, unfold with typical Rat Race flare, expert event management and unwavering commitment to safety throughout.

This is probably the hardest off-road-Tweed-clad-pipe-lit-plus-four-and-headtorch-wearing run that exists. We send you across rivers, through forests and over a mountain or 2 in the pitch dark of a chilly March night. Choose to go Half Stalker or for those who have the true minerals, take on the Full Stalker. You can even start with the intention to go Full and bail out on to the Half if you crumble.

Once the race is over, its time for the infamous Mighty Beerstalker Party in our huge heated tent; with grub, Wainwright Golden Beer, bands and the trademark crowdsurfing til late into the night. Party access is included with every race entry and you can roll out of the bar straight into our amazing camp-site under the stars. Get a free pint and a bacon roll the morning after the night before when you buy a camping ticket.
