MADAGASCAR ULTRA TRAIL 2017
EDITION 2017 IN A NUTSHELL
Madagascar trail run 2017 was held between the 11th and 16th of July 2017 and was full of twists! Below some information about the entrants, before scrolling down to the results at the bottom of this page:
- Entrants: 28 runners at the start line of the trail run 2017, 26 finishers. 1 runner was disqualified for his behavior.
- 5 countries were there: Malagasy, Sweden, United States, Argentina, South Africa
- Age: Runners were aged from 21 to 58 y.o.
- Genders: 7 Women and 21 Men. It is 5 more women compared to 2016’s edition! We are very proud of it.
- 1 South African Elite runner: After Thabang Madiba in 2016, Christiaan Greyling crossed the Mozambique channel to also win the famous Alohalo (Malagasy Totem) of the trail run 2016 in Madagascar. Unfortunately is lost against the Malagasy athletes’ combativeness. He still won a Zebu trophy in his category.
- Hajanirina’s performance: Hajanirina is the winner of Madagascar trail run 2017. It was unexpected as Hajanirina is not familiar with the ground and environment of Diego Suarez’s region (He his from the highlands, where it is colder and much more hilly). Moreover lot of his competitors did already the race last year. Hajanirina surprised everyone and especially Jacquis Justin, the favorite of Madagascar trail run 2017.
- The 2 Malagasy Elite Runners came back: Laurette Rasoarinomena / Heritiana Andrianaivo
- Revelinot RAHERINANDRASANA, elite paralympic athlete, came back too and finished the race again!
