The Mongol Rally is labelled “the greatest motoring adventure on the planet”. There’s no backup, no support and no set route; there's just a start date and an end point. The rest is up to you; how long, how far and how much fun! The car you travel in has to be small (around 1,000cc) and the great thing about the Mongol Rally is the lack of rules and organisational support. This intercontinental car rally 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 Objective Travel 'Mongol Rally Course' will provide you with the ‘tool kit' you need to survive the road trip across mountain ranges, deserts and other rough terrains. We have trained numerous people travelling from London to Mongolia and have run these training courses for the past 8 years. We are also the trainers of the ‘Long Way Round’ and ‘Long Way Down’ expeditions.
The course is split into two days.
Sunday 19th June 2022 (Reserve Day Tuesday 21st June 2022) - CANCELLED FOR 2023
A whole load of topics covered, from the planning (routes, visas, carnet de passage, money, maps and communication etc), basic mechanics and vehicle checks, personal and vehicle security, camping and equipment, checkpoint procedure and just about anything else that might present a hiccup during the trip.
Monday 20th June 2022 - CANCELLED FOR 2022
This day is focused on providing some very useful but also potentially life-saving medical training. There will be a strong emphasis on road traffic accidents as well as basic life support, staying healthy and field hygiene. Road traffic accidents will pose a significant risk for anyone participating in the Mongol Rally and the Medical day will provide invaluable, life-saving techniques especially when in remote areas where medical response services will be limited.
We recommend that both the Planning, Logistics and Safety Day and the Medical Expedition and First Aid Days are both attended to ensure that you are equipped with all the skills you need to truly appreciate this wonderful adventure.
