Skeleton Coast National Park / Namib Desert

The Namib Race is a 250-kilometer / 155-mile, six-stage, seven-day, ultramarathon across the oldest desert in the world, the Namib Desert in Namibia.

The race takes place in the Namib Desert in the Skeleton Coast National Park on the coast with the Atlantic Ocean. Competitors will see a great diversity of scenery and terrain including beach where the desert meets the Atlantic Ocean and through Seal colonies, through salt pans, past salt lakes which are home to flamingos, through the infamous dunes of the Namib desert, into dry riverbeds where a hint of water gives way to lush green vegetation, past deserted oil and diamond mines and across vast open red desert plains and hills.
