The Mongol Rally is labelled “the greatest motoring adventure on the planet” and there’s no backup, no support and no set route, while the car you travel in has to be small (around 1,000cc). This journey is not about having a smooth, uncomplicated ride, and you’re definitely in for an extreme adventure, so it’s important to prepare correctly. The great thing about the Mongol Rally is the lack of rules and organisational support, there is a start date and an end point. The rest is up to you; how long, how far, how much fun!

For the last 5 years we have run tailored made training days, on some occasions with ans additional day for medical training. This year Objective will run a training day on Sunday 25th June 2017.
Objective Travel Safety can provide you with the ‘tool kit' you need to survive the road trip across mountain ranges, deserts and other rough terrains. The finish line is in the Russian city of Ulan Ude, and to make sure you get there safely, Objective can create a course that’s tailored to your needs, and your individual journey through to the finishing line.
We know that while the Mongolian rally is one single event, each group of participants will have their own individual journey. With the expedition becoming more and more popular each year, Objective Travel Safety often have many groups undertake the course, splitting the overall cost.

"Objective Travel Safety provided us with the best preparation for the Mongol Rally that we could have hoped for. On multiple occasions during our travels we were saved by the knowledge gained on our two day experience and I can honestly say we probably wouldn't have completed the rally without it! Charlie and his team created an enjoyable and hugely thorough course that I would highly recommend to any adventurer!”
