Gobi Desert Ultra-Marathon

Gobi Desert Ultra-Marathon

Biology don Paul Fernandez was invited as a 'famed runner' to compete in the "Changan Ford Kuga Gobi Ultra-Marathon" - a 50km loop in the Gobi desert near Jiuquan, in China.

Athletes from around the World took part in the race, which took them over sand dunes, gobi/stone and only four km of desert road.  Paul completed the course in three hours 52 minutes, bringing him across the line in 9th place overall, the 3rd Westerner, 2nd European and first in the 'Over 40 category'. The picture is of Paul at the press conference, with the main organisers and dignitaries, and the best runners from China, Japan and the USA.
