    For those who enjoy ultra distance and a challenge, this one looks interesting and some say that it's the hardest race in the world ... 5300km across Australia with an elevation of 29 000 meters. This race is done unsupported.

    I was looking at this last night, and dreaming a little...
    But it's already sold out.
    I it would be an amazing thing to do, though, maybe another year!

    The entries opened up again so I signed up. Just booked my flight, so I'm definitely going. I'm slightly nervous!

    What are the significant differences between the pan European race?
    I presume that Eurorpe offers many more route choices amd many more stopping places for food water and rest.

    This is a bit longer as well from what I understand, although the climbing is similar.
