June Newsletter Posted on June 17, 2015December 8, 2016 by asheera coowar Coming up: more fun, more thrill! Dear trailers, Only a few weeks to go before the start of the fifth edition of the Dodo Trail! Our team is keenly preparing the second press conference of the Dodo Trail and other key elements of the fast coming trail! In the meantime, here are our latest news! The official trailer of the fifth edition At the end of May, zealous trailers and enthusiastic followers of the Dodo Trail discovered the trailer of this fifth edition, presented by our Gold Sponsor, the Mauritius Commercial Bank. The high definition pictures show the transcendent west side of the island with its panoramic and breathtaking views. The video includes testimonies of famous trailers, among which, Ricky Lightfoot and Landie Greyling, male and female winners of the Xtreme Dodo Trail. Both of them will participate to the fifth edition of the Dodo Trail as star runners. Produced by Eruption Studio, Bronze Sponsor of the Dodo Trail for the last four years, the 2min50 trailer can be viewed on our Facebook Page and our website. The Dodo Trail, an “eco-friendly” race After four successful editions and a growing number of trailers, reducing the environmental impact of the trail is, absolutely, one of our priorities. In partnership with the GML Think Green, Bronze Sponsor of the Dodo Trail, several green and eco-friendly elements will, as from this coming edition, be added to the logistic of the trail. Disposable plastic cups will be replaced by ones made of recycled plastic and which can be reused each year. Furthermore, 20 L water bottles provided by Phoenix Beverages Limited, Silver Sponsor of the Dodo Trail, will be used instead of 0.5L or 1.5L water bottles, so far distributed during the trail. Hurry Up, Registration closes soon! Initially planned for 15th June, registrations will close on 24th June. Last year, a record number of 1,300 participated to the trail and we hope to achieve a new record this year by welcoming a maximum of 1,600 trailers. To date, our website has registered a great number of participants from 16 different countries, namely Andorra, Australia, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Indonesia, Italy, Madagascar, Malaysia, Mauritius, Reunion, South Africa, Switzerland, United Kingdom and USA. Our second press conference On 11th June, at the headquarters of the MTPA, the Dodo Trail team will welcome its partners, sponsors and local journalists for a press conference during which latest news of the trail as well as informative details will be revealed. We wish to point out that we are glad that some of our sponsors and partners have supported us since the first edition of the Dodo Trail in 2011. See you soon for more news Dodo Trailers!
