Justine's Mongol Derby

Raised by 30 people in 6 months
The Mongol Derby is the longest and toughest horse race in the world. The 1000km course recreates Chinggis Khaan's legendary empire-busting postal system. Riders change horses every 40km and stay with the local herders or camp under the stars.

Every year 40 professional, semi-professional and enthusiastic amateur riders compete for the derby crown. To stand a chance of finishing, riders must balance survival skills and horsemanship, they must endure the elements, semi-wild horses and unfamiliar food and terrain. Completing the world's longest horse race is an achievement few can boast!!! The event supports the Mongolian locals who hire out their horses to the riders. If just one of their horses is used, it is enough to support them and their family for an entire year!

I want to take on this challenge for the 2019 derby, following in the footsteps of Annabel Neasham & Adrian Corboy from my employer, Ciaron Maher Racing, who last year competed in the derby and won! The event also raises funds for the organiser’s chosen charity. Last year, Ciaron Maher Racing's fundraising efforts were directed to The Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation and we raised in excess of $30,000.

I am looking for help to get me there, which will in turn allow me to fundraise again at our annual charity ball for a very worthy cause! The cost of entry is $15k. I will be eternally grateful for every donation in support of this cause from clients, friends and friends of friends that help me to achieve my dream of competing this year and being able to support the locals abroad and a charity at home. Thank you!
