All to interview women across the globe, document womens’ rights, raise money for charity and be the catalyst for change for women everywhere! Team #WeLive Mongol Rally 2016 is ready and we want you right by our side! Saddle up and join us for one hell of a bumpy ride…
Mongol Rally 2016 Whaaaaat?
Mongol Rally 2016 Whhhhy?
Because women need people like you and me. We’re determined to fight for women’s rights and be there on the ground, meeting and speaking to women from all walks of life through the 21 countries we’re going through. We want to highlight global women’s issues and make a change. Firstly, we’re supporting two amazingly kickass woman-friendly charities, Mountain 2 Mountain and Coolearth (which you can find out more about further down in this post) but secondly, we’re determined to speak with NGOs along the way too and promote their essential work to you guys!
We’re making a book and a documentary from all the material we gather and cannot wait to share it with you at the end of our journey!

Where are Team #WeLive Going On The Mongol Rally 2016?
Starting from bonny Scotland, we plan to grace the following countries with our wildass presence!
Apologies in advance to the UK, France, Germany, Austria, Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Albania, Kosovo, Macedonia, Bulgaria, Turkey, Georgia, Armenia, Iran, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Russia and Mongolia. Phew! What a journey eh? What an EPIC journey!
We’re particularly excited about going here
(Cappadocia in Turkey)
(The Door To Hell in Turkmenistan)
We Wouldn’t Mind Seeing These Guys Either
(Phwoar thank you Mongolia)
But Most Importantly It’s About Womens’ Rights
We can’t change everything in 49-ish days but we’re gonna have a good crack at starting something to raise awareness of what’s going on in the world and our book and film is going to be a good start!
#WeLive Mongol Rally 2016 raising money for charity
If we’re gonna get from the UK to Mongolia in two tin cans and speed through unknown, mysterious lands by the seat of our pants, #WeLive Mongol Rally 2016 is not just gonna do this for human research and our own unstable tendencies. Hell no. Mother Theresa is going to be high-fiving us from the skies on this one. How? By saying ‘Yes, You Go Girls!’ for us supporting two super charities: Cool Earth and Mountain 2 Mountain.
We’re giving money to these kickass causes!
When is the Mongol Rally 2016?
With all the shenanigans that we’ll be getting up to we might as well just guffaw and yell, ‘How long is a piece of string love?’ but *theoretically* the race will be from the 17th July to the 10th September 2016. That’s 49-ish days of insanity Sean T wishes he could get in on. Basically, all we can guarantee to you is that we will be in a car from the 17th of July. Whether that car even works and gets us out of the UK will be up to the grace of the Gods and magical cosmos luck. Get praying folks!
Want To Get Involved Yourself?
