About the Race

WHY RUN IT?

Le Grand Raid may take place on a tropical island paradise, but don’t think for a second you’ll be running along flat, easy going beaches. The course features 31,500 feet of elevation gain, crossing through jungles and over volcanoes to traverse the whole island.

“If you obey all the rules, you miss all the fun.”

- Katharine Hepburn

You’re not alone if you can’t place Reunion on a map, but it’s a place worth getting to know. Between Madagascar and Mauritius in the Indian Ocean, Reunion is known for having one of the most active volcanos in the world, Piton de la Fournaise, as well as striking natural beauty.
