RacingThePlanet’s seventh Roving Race will take part in Madagascar on 31 of August 2014. The Roving Races take place once a year in a new and unique location each time. This series is in its seventh year with the last two races taking place in Jordan in 2012 and Iceland in 2013. This series is a similar format as the prestigious 4 Deserts series. They are 250 kilometer / 155 mile, 7-day, 6-stage endurance footraces through the most remote and culturally rich places on earth. The unique landscape includes lush rainforest, rivers and crystalline lakes to desert, savannah, huge caverns, mountains, grassland and open valleys all surrounded by thousands of kilometers of pristine, turquoise shoreline. Madagascar has a number of highlights including the rich flora and fauna, much of which is not found anywhere else on earth. The event is self-supported which means that competitors must carry all their own equipment and food, but are provided with water and a place in a tent each day and are supported by professional medical and operations teams.
