Royal Raid 70Km

The Departure of RR 80 will be at Casela Bird Park / Yemen Nature Reserve on the west coast of Mauritius on the 12th of May 2018 at 05h00 - opening of the post at 03h30 / closing of start check at 04h45. The race will go through this private nature reserve: the track is undulating with steep slopes, on a dry and quite hot ground. After Yemen the race will join Black River National Park via 4.5km of tarred road. After 700m into the Park, runners will face a major climb of 2 km in the middle of the tropical forest to reach 400 m higher, through a humid track. They will then go down before another major climb of 4 km with 600 m of positive height (Parakeet Trail) to reach Parakeet station, the highest point of the race at an altitude of 740 m. As from there we are entering the new track as per the following table
