The Mongol Rally?

Come on: Send us to Mongolia!

(You know you want to…)

What:
The Mongol Rally is an annual charity race across Eurasia where 500 cars traverse 1/3 of the world in 1-liter engine vehicles and, with a lot of luck, make it all the way to Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. There’s no route and no help, but a whole lot of road and good deeds along the way. (See “About Mongol Rally/Mercy Corps” navigation tab above)

Quick facts:
Start:
London, England
Finish: Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia (if we make it!)
Distance: Over 8,000 miles
Time: Who knows?!
Team Members: 8
Team Vehicles: 3
Mechanical Staff: Ha! Are you kidding?!

Who:
Named after the Mongolian national drink, an alcoholic beverage made from fermented horses’ milk, the Airag Addicts are a patchwork crew made up of eight friends and friends of friends. To learn more about the Airag Addicts, visit the “Meet the Team” navigation tab above.

Why:
Beyond the desire to explore the world while having a crazy adventure, the Mongol Rally achieves something very important – it raises money and awareness for charities that work in Mongolia and other countries along the route. The majority of the funds raised by the Airag Addicts will go to Mercy Corps Mongolia which supports rural communities to meet their economic and social needs. The other Official Charities include the Christina Noble Children’s Foundation (CNCF) and Hope and Homes for Children. (See “About Mongol Rally/Mercy Corps” navigation tab above)

How:
With your help, the Airag Addicts will be able to support these important charities and partake in an adventure few have ever dared. To be blunt, we need to raise money and excitement. The bulk of funds raised will go to the Rally charities, as well as to cover the cost our cars (which will be given as a charity donation as well) and some other expenses. Please visit the “Donate” tab above to see all the ways you can help us out.
