Madagascar Ultra Trail 2017 is pleased to host 2 powerful athletes for the 2nd edition. Landie and Christiaan Greyling trail runners will come to run and challenge the Malagasy athletes this July. Here is an outlook on their race records.
Landie Greyling (32) : 1st South African Women along ITRA* ranking
An international career: Landie as already ran on half of the trails in Europe: Spain, France, Switzerland, Italy, Germany… She’s also familiar with more exotic trails such as in South Africa, her home-country, or Australia. Winner of the famous South African race “Otter Trail Run” in 2014 (1st WOMEN, 12th OVERALL), she will be a serious challenger for both WOMEN and MEN during Madagascar Ultra Trail 2017!
Christiaan Greyling (32) : 6th South African men along ITRA* ranking
A long-distance runner: Christiaan is at ease with long-distance races (Ultra). His longest distance ever ran was 266km in 32h59, with a positive elevation of 16 300mts. He went trough the 7 stages of Goretex Transalpine Run 2015 (Germany) with an average speed of 8km/h! With such speed on a such long distance, Christiaan will be very at ease during Madagascar Ultra Trail 2017.
The word from Sonja Gottlebe, event manager: “we are very happy and inpatients to host these international runners during the 2nd edition of Madagascar Ultra Trail 2017. Both of them will come to Madagascar for the first time, allowing them to challenge to a new running nation and also discover the marvelous North of the Island!”
