The DODO TRAIL 6th edition, 2017

Posted: 17/07/2017

On your mark, get set, go!


Dodo Trail is back!


On Sunday 17th of July , almost a thousand runners participated in the four races from age 5 to 70! The shortest race being the Dodo Fun Run 5km gathered young runners as from five years old and the longest race, the Extreme Dodo Trail through Le Morne, Chamarel and the peaks in Black River was of 50 km. Participants came from South-Africa, Reunion and many local and expat adept runners and hikers had a great time. The race was held on the west coast of the island with stunning views and fascinating features of the wilderness. The highest peak could reach 810m above sea level. Climbs were sometimes tough and descents were technical for the Mini Dodo Trail of 10 km and the Ti Dodo Trail of 25km race as well, but nothing is impossible in a trail!

Remember to register online for the 7th edition around March next year. The new organisers ROAG were as good as the former. Sponsors and volunteers assisted to make that event an amazing one!
