Meet Alexis and John: The Youngest Duo Registered for Desert Huge Ultra—Gobi March 2015!

When Alexis Lee Man Lin and John Low Zhong Heng traverse the Gobi Desert in China’s Xinjiang Province, they expect to do more than challenge themselves (and each other)! The Gobi March is comprised of 250km of rugged terrain guaranteed to test every entrant. To conquer the Gobi, Alexis and John will run across beautiful, harsh but exotic landscape and they may meet the Hui, Kazak and Uyghur peoples of the Gobi region.
