Event description

Description

In the 1920s, the race was on to become the first westerner to successfully cross The Empty Quarter. In February 1931, RSGS Livingstone Medallist Bertram Thomas, after a journey of 60 days, did just that. Eighty-five years later, Mark Evans and his team set out to recreate this historic journey, taking 49 days to cross the largest sand desert in the world, from Salalah in Oman, across Saudi Arabia to Doha in Qatar.
