#FollowFriday: The Mongol Rally

Billed as a 10,000 mile adventure in a tiny car suitable for the weekly shop, the Mongol Rally is a slow drive from the UK or the Czech Republic to the Mongolian capital, Ulaanbaatar. There is no route: participants make their way any which way they can.

Organised by The Adventurists, teams are required to raise £1000 for charity, currently the Christina Noble Children’s Foundation. Since its inception the rally has raised over £1.5 million.

The Mongol Rally starts July 23 (UK) and July 25 (Czech Republic) and can be followed on Twitter via the hashtag #mongolrally or at @mongolrallylive, the official Mongol Rally feed from the Adventurists.
