THE RACE WEBSITE

The second Mauritian edition of Tropica’Dingue will reveal its tropi’Dingo secrets amid a natural landscape in the southeast of the island. Just a few miles off Curepipe and close to the old Mon Trésor sugar factory – A historic industrial area after which an integrated and sustainable urban development project in this region has been named. A former British air base used during the Second World War, the Chaland site is situated alongside the picturesque village of Le Bouchon, which borders Le Chaland beach against a hinterland backdrop of sugarcane fields. Participants will have the opportunity to discover the charms of the Christiane Vallet forest and the century-old trees near Mare aux Songes – where remains of the dodo have been found.

THE SPIRIT OF THE RACE

Participating in a trail normally implies being serious, focused, properly fitted out, and constantly thinking about one’s time and performance! But on the Tropica’Dingue, forget about proper outfits, as all you need to do is come disguised with your teammates, be ready to crawl in the mud and climb a net or slide down a giant slide! The relatively short track (9 km) is open to one and all! Forget also about chronometric performance. Enthusiasm and folly are your sole preoccupations. Finally, if you love to dance, the Tropica’Dingue is the right event for you, as prior to starting the race, you’ll warm up to the sound of the jubilant and frenzied tunes served up from the DJ tower at the heart of the Race Village. So, are you in for something new?
