About the event
The Mongol Rally 2018
In 2017 a few of us had heard of a challenge that we wanted to be part of. The Mongol Rally - 10,000 miles from the UK to Mongolia in a tiny car. Sounds simple, right? Wrong.
Like any good challenge there are rules:
The car has to be under 1.2 litres.
Each car must raise at least £1000 for charity.
No help from anyone - No GPS, No Googlemaps, No phoning your mum. You're on your own.
Cool, Who is going?
Team Trash is Marc Allen, Cat Edwards, Joseph Moon, Rob Pell, Aden Bos, Bekki Kirkland, Michael Garry, and Dee Harding. We're going to be in 2 very small cars spending 7 weeks in each other's company.
Which charities are you raising money for?
After much debate we will be raising money for causes close to our hearts - MIND, Jo's Trust (Cervical Cancer Charity) and Cool Earth Foundation.
Where are you going?
We're driving our tiny little cars from UK through France, Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, Azerbaijan, across the Caspian sea on a cargo ship, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Russia and finally Mongolia.
Where you come in..
We need your help to get us there!
This isn't a holiday; this is driving for hundreds and hundreds of miles a day over the roughest terrain, places that have no roads, places that real and present dangers from kidnappings, to bandits, to packs of wolves. We'll have each other and our wits to get through the 10,000 miles.
With this challenge in mind, Team Trash was formed. Garbage cars. Rubbish equipment. We have two cars, 8 people and a truckload of good intentions. Hopefully we're going to do make it and raise some money for our chosen causes on the way. We'll be filming everything along the way and will hopefully be making a mini-documentary of our adventure - the good, the bad and the downright strange.
Ultimately the challenge is just one part of the bigger cause here. We're in it because we believe in the charities we've chosen and want to do our part to make a difference to those they support.
Thank you so much for all of your support in advance.
Why should you sponsor?
Why should you sponsor us?
Instead of the usual run-of-the-mill sponsor options you'll not only get something unique and interesting that people want to engage with, you'll actually get a ROI on what you put in.
We are entirely flexible about what sponsorship options you want to offer. We don't have much, and it's going to take a lot of support to get us to the finish line.
Have an adventurous demographic? We're the team for you. Want your product taken to a foreign land? We can do that. Want to increase engagement with the young and brave? Have a chat to us. Looking forward to hearing from you!
We're 8 people from all walks of like. Student Paramedic. Ex-Mechanic. Project Managers. DEFRA Employee. You get the jist.
The one uniting factor is that we are all passionate about raising money for MIND, Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust, and the Cool Earth Foundation. This is why we decided to take on this impossible challenge:
Driving to Mongolia without GPS, in a 1.2 litre car which a trip to the shops is probably pushing it normally let alone 10,000 miles away.
We decided we could really use the help of friends in a more corporate setting and realised what we could actually offer them at the same time, so decided to dip our toes into this site.
