The Raid des Alizés in Martinique

More than 200 participants will join the starting line of this adventurous race.

The fourth edition of this 100% women's race for charity will take place on the island of Martinique from November 27 to December 2, 2018.

200 athletes will leave the starting line in teams of three, for six days of competition. Every year, Martinique hosts the Raid des Alizés, a competition with a spirit of solidarity. Each team participates in the name of a charitable association, and donations depend on the overall ranking.

Trail running, mountain biking, kayaking and an obstacle course in the mud. The week of sporting challenges in the wilderness ends with a festive evening and a well-deserved rest. Among the events marking the Raid des Alizés, the contestants will have to climb the Pelée mountain, the highest point of this island of flowers. Beaches, tropical forests, mountains and peaks provide a stunning backdrop for this multi-sport adventure.
