Finding Gobi

Finding Gobi

Details

Finding Gobi is the tale of Dion Leonard, a seasoned ultramarathon runner who crossed paths with a stray dog while competing in a 155-mile race through the Gobi Desert in China. The little dog, who would later earn the name Gobi, went step for step with Dion over the Tian Shan, Mountains, across massive sand dunes, through yurt villages and the black sands of the desert, keeping pace with him for nearly 80 miles. In 2017 their story became a New York Times and Sunday Times Bestseller. Hear Dion tell the extraordinary story himself and pick up a copy of the book.
