Sportive meetings are back again, much to athletes’ and spectators’ enjoyment, who came to admire the best performances. Mauritius is particularly well suited for international events, set between mountains and coast. Sports enthusiasts, players or supporters, check out three competitions to attend or watch while staying at one of our resorts.

 

Upcoming sports events in Mauritius

The Moka Trail on 1 October

Trails have become a popular sport over the past 15 years and more and more local enthusiasts are joining the ranks of international champions and challenging each other to their fullest potential. The Moka Trail is one of the many annual competitions offering a unique opportunity to discover central Mauritius through a number of mountain peaks and typical local villages.

 

Although the entire splendid journey along a rugged and unspoilt landscape is more for experienced trail runners, less experienced runners can still participate in the shorter Deux Mamelles trail. This sporting event annually brings together athletes from the Indian Ocean region as well as Mauritians and many foreigners also join in.

Three different trails are organized: the Grand Pouce, a demanding race of 28km and 1350m of climbing; the Petit Both with a total of 14km and a 650m of climbing; and the Deux Mamelles, a 7km trail that can be completed in a leisurely manner.

Everything is well organized and full medical support and assistance is provided.
