A new edition of the Ultra Trail Raidlight Beachcomber (UTRB), Mauritius’ only ultra event and an annual fixture in the diaries of trail runners and nature lovers alike, will be held on the 27th and 28th of July 2019.
For this 6th edition, 4 different tracks have been proposed to the participants. The event will kick off with the Trail des 7 Couleurs, a captivating 100km course that can be run alone or in pairs. This will be followed by the Trail de la Perruche (a 47km-long course), the Trail du Nautile (25km), and the Trail du Souffleur (10km) concluding the competition on the 28th of July.
The UTRB has taken runners on a journey of discovery since its inception in 2014. In addition to its breath-taking routes, this 5-star trail is set apart by its welcome, support the race assistance it offers, and its buffet-like refuelling stations. “Our goal is to make the UTRB a landmark event enjoyed by both Mauritians and foreign trailer runners, and that also helps promote Mauritius as a destination," explains Arianne Devienne Bellepeau, Beachcomber’s Leisure & Events Manager.
The deadline for registration is the 8th of July. Please note that only 1000 participants will be able to register for the 10km trail, which is the event’s most popular and awaited race. Participants who register prior to the 21st of June will also benefit from early bird rates.
