We are proudly member of International Trail Running Association (ITRA, based in Chamonix, France). We have assessed the path in order to be accredited by ITRA and communicate our results at the end of the race. With this initiative, it helps Malagasy runners participating to the race to be more know abroad, by the registration of their running performance in the worldwide runner’s database of ITRA.
Racing Madagascar is a half-autonomy race. During stages, assistance is forbidden, runners must carry with them what they eat and drink. They left their personal belongings and luggage in the camps each day before the stage starts. Water refills are available on each checkpoints. The race is timed but our time cutoffs have been calculated to allow each runners to complete the stage at his/her own pace.
