Expedition Foods is proud to announce its partnership as the official freeze-dried food partner of RacingThePlanet: Georgia which takes place from 23-29 August 2020. The RacingThePlanet Ultramarathon is a six-stage, 250 kilometer (155 mile) footrace for hikers and runners. This famed race takes place in a new country each year. Past locations have included: Vietnam, Namibia, Australia, Jordan, Nepal, Iceland, Ecuador, Madagascar, Sri Lanka, Patagonia and New Zealand.
The course is located in the Javakheti Region of the southwestern part of Georgia, in the Southern Caucasus Mountain Range. The course takes you through old forests, dormant volcanic valleys, breath-taking mountain passes, unique villages and traditional monasteries. At times you may have the opportunity to sleep in traditional Georgian village homes.
The Long March will take you through abandoned former Russian villages, as you make your way up Pa’Tara Abuli, towards the Abuli Fortress which is over 3000 years old. This mysterious fortress has only recently been discovered and is part of an archaeological expedition to understand more about the history and beginnings.
