MADAGASCAR ULTRA TRAIL 2018
09 TO 14 JULY 2018
Race Starts in
With 30 years in tour operating and event planning in Madagascar, Boogie Events Malagasy company is introducing a trail running event: Racing Madagascar.
During this week-long event in northern Madagascar, the annual staged Ultra Trail is held. The ultra is a 150km race in 6 days. For our 3rd edition in 2018 and after the lemur (2016), the zebu (2017), the 3rd edition will be held under the symbol of Chameleon!
With runners coming from the entire world, this unique trail running event is a meeting with the local sport athletes, a touristic discovery and of course a sport challenge! The event is timed to comply with the international set by International Trail Running Association (ITRA). But rest assured that you will be able to finish the race thanks to wide time cutoffs. Indeed, it would be a shame not taking with you your camera or smartphone to take picture of the wonderful northern Madagascar!
3 CORE VALUES FOR THE EVENT
6 stages in 6 days
700mts positive elevation
Partnerships with local sport associations
Involvement of local population in the organization of the event
Sponsoring of Malagasy athletes for the duration of the event
MORE THAN A RACE, AN INITIATION JOURNEY
A TRUSTED ORGANIZATION With a 30-years experience in Madagascar, we organize sport events and tours for years now. Thanks to our providers and partners in northern Madagascar, we work with 50 staff members, use 12 4x4 and 3 trucks for logistics. Camps are very comfortable.
SUPPORTER PACKAGE We wanted to offer something different in the world of trail running races, by letting your family join you. While you run your daily stage, the supporters visit the region, full of national parks. It is an opportunity for them to discover an worldwide unique flora and fauna.
MEETINGS Malagasy people are very friendly and welcoming. We initiated partnerships with local sport associations to sponsor local athletes for the entry fee of the race. It allows you to challenge them in the sport field and most of it, to share your post race impressions with them.
