The ultimate island is right at the heart of the Indian Ocean and is staggeringly beautiful. Reunion Island is a very popular tropical tourist destination, as well as a hotspot for avid trail runners.
It is the ideal destination for trail running, with more than 900 kilometres of trails and three GR hiking trails that take you through the Pitons, Cirques and Ramparts, listed as World Heritage by Unesco since 2010.
Reunion Island is a huge land of tracks, thanks to its mountainous terrain. Mafate and the mountains covered in vegetation, Salazie and the small “ilet” villages and the highest peaks of the island: the Piton des Neiges, Gros Morne, Maido cliffs, Grand Bénare… all have exceptional itineraries on offer.
Trail running races along off-road tracks through forests and across mountains are real challenges. From the south of the island to the north, there are trail running races organised all year round, in a mystical atmosphere, extraordinary setting and a natural environment that is just as surprising as it is varied.
