GlobalLimits organise a series of staged running races in several undeveloped and culturally distinctive locations around the world. Races include The Ancient Khmer Path in Cambodia, The Last Secret in Bhutan, Albania The Hidden Treasure and most recently The Hemisphere Crossing, held in Sao Tome and Principe, small islands off the west coast of Africa.
The races are each around 200km long and run over six stages of between 20 and 60km. They are supported runs: competitors carry only mandatory gear and what they need for that stage; water is provided at checkpoints. Meantime, competitors’ equipment and food is transported forward by the race organisation to the next night’s camp. Races also have a very strong local character and include contact with local culture: the nightly camping locations are often near sites of cultural interest.
