SATURDAY, JULY 13TH, was the official start to this year’s Mongol Rally. If you haven’t heard of it, the Mongol Rally is one of the most epic road trips ever. Carloads of adventurers race from Europe to Mongolia while raising money for charity. Last year, we followed author and travel show host Leon Logothetis as he attempted to drive 10,000 miles from London to Ulan Bator, Mongolia, in search of his “Mojo.”
In honor of this year’s event, we’ll be publishing a series of new videos and written excerpts from Leon’s forthcoming book, as well as launching a new contest. Whether you’re participating in this year’s rally or just cruising around the country, Matador wants you to capture your #roadtripstoke. We’re looking for words, images, and video footage that defines #roadtrip and #travelstoke.
We’ll pick one winner, who will receive prizes to support their next road trip adventure, including:
- Choice of a 3-night stay at any Grace Hotel or affiliated properties in the continental US
- Rental car
- Round-trip airfare within the continental US
