Raised by 14 people in 39 months


The Rally:

12,500 miles, unlimited number of routes, 40 odd days, 1 destination, Ulan Ude via Ulaanbaatar, all in the name of charity!

The Squad:
Rhys Edwards, MVP
Oli Neville-Payne, CEO
Tom Ucci, CIO

The Cars:
"Mickey" the Nissan Micra!

The Charities:
Cool Earth - Not only is the Mongol Rally an industrial dose of adventure, it’s also about Saving the World. We ask every team to raise a minimum of £1000 for charity, at least £500 of which goes to our official charity Cool Earth. 

To date The Adventurists have raised a whopping £5.5 million for charity and, along with the teams on our other adventures, you'll be saving the world one rainforest at a time. Not because we’re tree hugging sandal weavers, but because the world would be shit without them.

Where would we get lost if we didn't have jungles?

Dreams Come True  - Bringing joy to children and young people with serious and life-limiting conditions. They are a national UK charity that works hard to make dreams come true for children and young people with serious and life-limiting conditions aged between 2 and 21 years old. Fulfilling a dream can help a child or young person to think beyond their illness or disability and focus on something highly positive and empowering.

The experience can create amazing memories for entire families and our friendly and knowledgeable team are there to help every step of the way. Over the years, they have arranged for thousands of children and young people to meet their heroes, enjoy amazing experiences, visit special places and more.

For some, a dream is simply to enjoy everyday activities so we're also happy to provide specialist items such as disability trikes, wheelchair swings, sensory equipment and technology.
