Four races and 5-star service
Ultra Trail Raidlight Beachcomber (UTRB) is back, with its unique mix of challenging and enticing races for all categories of trailers, paired with a 5-star service and organisation. The fourth edition is scheduled for 08 and 09 July 2017 and will again take participants along spectacular tracks for a unique experience of Mauritius in the wild.
The competition gets a major revamp in 2017 with a new route for the flagship 120kms Trail des 7 Couleurs, as well as a totally new 25kms race in the southern part of the island – one that will delight short-to-medium distance runners. The courses for the now well-established 47kms and 10kms races will remain unchanged.
Similarly unchanged is the 5-star label of UTRB, which makes it even more unique and attractive to local and international runners and accompanying guests alike. The participants’ welcome and support, the track marking, supplies and race assistance, all adhere to the highest standards for service that contribute to Beachcomber hotels’ reputation. Don’t be mistaken to think that you are dreaming wide-awake on being served by a chef on the buffet-like supply stations…
All the trails of UTRB are an invitation to discover the most breathtaking parts of Mauritius, across fields and forests and along mountainous paths, atop cliffs or on pristine beaches. Expert technicians have devised all tracks. An efficient and experienced team – the one that has made of the first three editions of UTRB a success – will similarly perform race management, monitoring and assistance.
