Our Route for the 2017 Mongol Rally

Our Route for the 2017 Mongol Rally

Dear Friends,

Further to my previous emails about this year's Mongol Charity Rally, we arrived safely at the finish point at Ulan Uhde, Siberia on August 9th. During a three week journey we covered 8,400 miles (13,500 kilometres) and suffered no serious mishaps other than ten mile locust storms, gigantic pot-holes and a crash in a taxi at the end! 

At the Finish Line, Ulan Uhde, Siberia, August 9th 2017

Despite its name, the rally actually passes through Mongolia and terminates at Ulan Ude in Siberia, the capital of the ancient Buddhist kingdom of Buryatia. Charlie and I are paying all of our own expenses and 100% of all the money we raise will therefore be donated to charity. If you would like to find out more about the Mongol Rally, their website link is as follows:

I am fundraising for the Child Bereavement UK charity. It supports families and educates professionals when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, or when a child is facing bereavement. HRH Prince William is its patron and they are an extremely lean, well-run charity that helps many, many people. Their website link is as follows:

Here is their own description of what they do:

Every day Child Bereavement UK deals with something that many people find too unbearable to contemplate – the untimely deaths of parents and children. It’s human nature for us to want to distance ourselves from this as something that happens to other people, but every year child bereavement is experiences by thousands of families in the UK. Child Bereavement UK is here to guide families through the long and difficult journey of grief. We are here to help them find the support they need, wherever they are in their journey and for as long as they need it.

If you would like to support me with a donation to Child Bereavement UK please do it safely and securely here.

With best wishes and many thanks,

Jonathan Tucker
