Dodo Trail: it’s on again!

Dear Dodo Trailers,

You have all been waiting for it: the Dodo Trail has launched its registrations on the 2nd of March! This 5th edition is highly awaited!


The kickstart was given at the beginning of March. Our website has already registered a total of 275 entrants. For the meantime, the Xtreme Dodo Trailers are 25 and it’s only the beginning! A much appreciated trail for its technical and challenging aspects and one can enjoy its pleasing and satisfying side once accomplished.

On the Mini Dodo Trailers’ side, we have 182 participants whereas the Ti Dodo Trail has registered 52 and the Dodo Fun Run 16 runners.

Cash prizes

In addition to the Finishers’ medal, cash prizes will be given to the first three men and women of the Xtreme Dodo Trail and Ti Dodo Trail!

For our « 100% mountain » course of the Xtreme Dodo Trail, the winners (first woman and first man) will be awarded € 750. The second to cross the finish line will have € 500 and the third € 250.

The Ti Dodo Trail follows the same principle with € 500 for the first price, € 300 for the second price and € 150 for third.

These special awards are the first time in Dodo Trail’s history and we remain the only ones in Mauritius to offer cash prices in this type of competition. For them to always run in good conditions and be able to renew their equipment, our cash prizes should be a much appreciated bonus for our trailers.

The Dodo Trail reinforces its “Green commitment”

Aiming at minimizing the environmental footprint of the Dodo Trail, the organizers decided to significantly reduce the use of plastic cups on refreshment tables. With the support of GML Think Green on this project, we will give each runner a cup made of Polypropylene – 100% eco material, easily recyclable or reusable – that can be used during the race. More information coming soon!

Routes have been enhanced

We have been working on some improvements on our courses so that they can offer our trailers an even more impressive panorama of the island! For example, the 25 kmand 50 km routes are now avoiding the 900 meters of road paved surface between the Gorges’ car park and the entrance of Brise Fer. A great news for our nature lovers!
