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 from the present one, but has always been renowned for its friendly atmosphere.
It is a mountain race that goes through the spectacular highest peaks and private lands of the south west of Mauritius. Dodo is a trail with natural wonders and inevitable adventure as you enjoy a unique occasion to run through stunning landscapes with breath-taking views on the 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 of climbing (going through the highest peak of Mauritius : Black River Peak)
- Ti Dodo Trail 25km & 1,500m ascent
- Mini Dodo Trail 10km & 500m ascent
There are fresh supplies at different check and water 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 privelege of going up the famous mountain of La Tourelle de Tamarin before reaching the spectacular finishing line at Riverland Sport Centre.
Do not miss it… just run it!
