The work of 500 people

The Mongol Derby is a massive undertaking. It involves over 500 people coming together to stage the race with around 1,500 horses.

There are families hosting the riders, herders wrangling the horses, vets looking after the horses (and any animal they come across), medics looking after the humans, event managers problem solving all over the place, a country director working tirelessly, horse managers running sections of the course, HQ staff managing the race, a race director, camp managers and camp staff, media crew pumping out content and an army of some of the best translators and drivers in the country.
