Mongolia Sunrise to Sunset is organised on a non-profit basis and all proceeds are used to support a variety of preservation projects in Hovsgol National Park and in selected other national parks in Mongolia via our “ecoLeap foundation” registered in Geneva, Switzerland – Register of commerce number CH-660-1328009-0.
In setting the course, we have sought to minimize the impact on the natural environment and we use bio-degradable green paint to mark the course.
We have also sought to use local resources to the greatest extent possible – this extends to using locally produced double cream instead of imported margarine & butter.
All proceeds and donations generated by the event go to supporting Hovsgol National Park.
Mongolia Sunrise to Sunset is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Mike Frank, our beloved race doctor for the first two years, in the hope of bringing Dr. Mike’s infectious spirit into the event and into our own lives. We were very lucky to have known him (read Article 1 and Article 2 on Dr. Mike Frank). Dr. Mike passed away on 23 October 2000 in a plane crash in Uganda.
