Our races are designed to challenge you but also to allow you to discover places open exclusively for you during our events. Immerse yourself in the forest of Mauritius, rich in its fauna and flora that cannot be seen anywhere else on the island.

The southern part of the island hides the most beautiful natural landscapes, varying between dense forest, waterfalls, mountainous slopes highlighted by the sea with its fifty shades of blue. Mauritius is more than a holiday destination, it is also a superb sporting destination for nature lovers and for those looking for adventure. Live a unique experience, with our team, during the STANDARD BANK ROYAL RAID 2020.


Special note: Each participant will have to make necessary arrangements for their own refueling (water etc...), even if the Organizing Committee provides refueling station at different checkpoints.
