The Mongol Rally is a car charity rally that begins in Europe and ends in Mongolia, with no predefined route. We will start in our hometown Lugo, and will follow the Silk Road through most of our journey, crossing countries like Iran, Kyrgyzstan or Kazakhstan. While we drive through more than 16.000km, we will also donate medical supplies, sports and school materials along our way.
The rally is designed as an adventure for the participants, and not a traditional rally/race, as there is no recognition for the first to finish, and there is not any kind of support from the organization along the way. All participants must raise funds for NGO´s or associations of their choice.
The first rally was held in 2004, in which six teams started and only four completed the course. Throughout the years, the rally increased its popularity and last year more than 500 teams signed up, raising more than 200,000 euros.
