FACING THE IMPOSSIBLE: THE FIRST WOMAN TO COMPLETE THE 4 DESERTS GRAND SLAM PLUS

Jax Mariash was at the beginning of a quest to become the first woman in history to complete the 4 Deserts Grand Slam Plus. To achieve that dream she would need to complete five races longer than 250 kilometers across some of the most forbidding terrain on the planet that each took more than seven days to complete. The first was in the jungle of Sri Lanka. The other four races would challenge Jax to cross the Atacama Desert, the Sahara Desert, the Gobi Desert and the Last Desert: Antarctica.
