JOIN US FOR AN INITIATION JOURNEY
A TRUSTED ORGANIZATION
With a long experience in Madagascar, we organize reliable sport events and tours. We wanted you to enjoy fully your runs and allow you to live fully the Malagasy way of life. Thanks to our providers and partners in northern Madagascar, we hire 50 staff members, use 12 cars and 3 trucks for logistics. The only thing you have to do: live the experience the way you want!
OFF THE GRID
Leave your comfortable Western world lifestyle behind and embrace the Malagasy countryside wilderness. During the event, you will be deep inside the bush, with no roads, no electricity (only provided by us), no connectivity. Racing Madagascar is more than a race, it is a journey of initiation and mind reinforcement!
Malagasy people are very friendly and welcoming. From the beginning, we started partnerships with local sport associations to sponsor local athletes for the race. It allows you to challenge them but most of it, to share your impressions with them and understand more the Malagasy sport culture.
