Dodo Trail 2014 : Reaching New Heights
The Dodo Trail is a trail run on the beautiful island of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean. The first Dodo Trail was held in 2011 on a very different course to the present one, but has always been renowned for its friendly atmosphere.
It is a mountain race that passes over the highest, most spectacular peaks and private lands of the south west of Mauritius. Dodo is a trail full of natural wonders and inevitable adventure as you enjoy a unique occasion to run through stunning landscapes with breathtaking views of the turquoise lagoon as well as the tropical forests of the Black River Gorge National Park. Ask anyone who has run it before – it is unforgettable.
The Dodo Trail offers three unique and challenging trails for experienced enthusiasts as well as novices and families:
Xtreme Dodo Trail: 50km & 3,500m ascent
Ti Dodo Trail: 25km & 1,500m ascent
Mini Dodo Trail: 10km & 500m ascent
And the “new baby” of this year is the Dodo Fun Run of +/- 5kms.
There are refreshment supplies at regular check points all along the track with water, Coke, fruit and more. A medical and safety team will be present at each water point. All runners will have the privilege of climbing the famous La Tourelle de Tamarin mountain before reaching the spectacular finishing line at Riverland Sport Centre.
Don’t miss it… just run it!
