Congratulations to all dodo trailers!

A united team

Thank you to the 200 volunteers who were present on field all day long before, during and after the trail. Behind the scenes of the Dodo Trail, a team works 24/7 and makes sure that everything is ready for the D-Day. Among them, Dominique de Spéville Doger, Vany Mardiapoulle and Christophe Doger de Spéville. Ze Dodo Trail thanks them for the tremendous work done!

A special thanks to Jérôme Désiré, the animator of the Dodo Trail, who once again brought an amazing atmosphere to the famous event and to Rentacolor for the sound system and music at the beginning and finishing lines.

Striking tracks

Since 2011, the Dodo Trail has offered runners a unique experience in the most beautiful parts of the west coast. This year again, we had the chance to run through beautiful tracks. Ze Dodo Trail warmly thanks the landowners who have granted us the right to pass though their private land.

See you all next year for another amazing trail!
