Diagonale des Fous

The Next Big Adventure starts tonight in St Pierre, Reunion, at 22:00 (that’s 20:00 in SA.) The ultra marathon crosses the island of Reunion diagonally, over a number of volcanoes & along crater rims, to the northern town of St Dennis. Some call it the Grand Raid, the French call it Diagonale des Fous (‘diagonal of the insane.’)

163km forward and about 10,000m of climbing (& descending) makes it one of the toughest events of the Ultra Trail World Tour. Over 2,700 runners will start on Thursday evening and we have until Sunday afternoon to reach the finish line. Sleep is optional.

The only thing insane about this Adventure would be to not attempt it.
