ULTRA TRAIL RAIDLIGHT BEACHCOMBER
Ultra Trail Raidlight Beachcomber (UTRB) is a unique mix of challenging and enticing races for all categories of trailers, paired with a 5-star service and organisation. The fourth edition will again take participants along spectacular tracks for a unique experience of Mauritius in the wild.
The competition gets a major revamp in 2017 with a new route for the flagship 120kms Trail des 7 Couleurs, as well as a totally new 25kms race in the southern part of the island – one that will delight short-to-medium distance runners. The courses for the now well-established 47kms and 10kms races will remain unchanged.
Similarly unchanged is the 5-star label of UTRB, which makes it even more unique and attractive to local and international runners and accompanying guests alike. The participants’ welcome and support, the track marking, supplies and race assistance, all adhere to the highest standards for service that contribute to Beachcomber hotels’ reputation. Don’t be mistaken to think that you are dreaming wide-awake on being served by a chef on the buffet-like supply stations.
All the trails of UTRB are an invitation to discover the most breathtaking parts of Mauritius, across fields and forests and along mountainous paths, atop cliffs or on pristine beaches. Expert technicians have devised all tracks. An efficient and experienced team – the one that has made of the first three editions of UTRB a success – will similarly perform race management, monitoring and assistance.
Preferential rate flights are available on request with South African Airways as well as Air Mauritius.

THE SHANDRANI RESORT AND SPA
The Shandrani Resort & Spa is therefore the ideal choice for accommodation during the MTB and, more generally, for the action-packed holidays, as the resort offers a choice of outdoors activities, including a “pitch-and-putt” golf course, a sail club, a diving center as well as a kids club, as close to nature as you can get.
This elegant 5-star hotel is situated on a private and protected peninsula adjacent to a marine park and a few minutes away by boat from the natural sanctuary of the Ile Aux Aigrettes. The resort boasts pristine beaches that lead to lagoons of your choice – calm ones or a more spectacular creek.
Set in a complex of villas on a private peninsula overlooking the Blue Bay Marine Park, this upmarket beach resort is 34 km from Black River Gorges National Park.
The chic rooms feature contemporary decor with colourful accents. All have sea-view terraces or balconies, plus flat-screen TVs, minibars and free Wi-Fi.
Amenities include a dive centre, a kids’ club and a 9-hole golf course, as well as a luxe spa, a fitness centre and a beachfront pool. There are 2 bars and 4 restaurants, including Thai and Italian options.
The Shandrani Resort & Spa is the place for start and finish for almost all the stages of the MTB 2017. It will also host the briefing, the delivery of race numbers, the pre-race and post-race technical support, as well as shuttle service for the competitors. The terrain around, with tracks of stone, earth and sand, as well as the surrounding fields all represent an ideal ground for warm-ups and for the last training sessions before D-Day.
