Exploring Rodrigues

Third day in a row exploring the incredible trails of #RodriguesIsland, courtesy of @ile_rodrigues_tourisme. During @expafrica, I had to rush at speed along the trail from the village of #StFrancoise, but today made for a more leisurely exploration. This may not make sense if you’re in the company of two world-class #trailrun legends like @landiegreyling and @christiaangrey, so let me explain…

We had their 13-month old Baby Christopher with us. And he was fast asleep, in a @thule pram. With a base filled with beer, provisions, #snorkel kit, and a few kitchen sinks. The trail very quickly morphed into a series of cliff scrambles and boulder-hopping descents, so in the end Christiaan and I carried the young Royal in his lofty carriage in the worthy new #ar discipline of #HikeAPerambulator … something to consider for your next event, @heidikinetic ????????????

The cold @phoenixbeermru at the amazing #ansebouteille – together with unmatched natural grandeur and superb snorkelling – is what makes @rodriguesisland such a truly unique destination. On Sunday, 1400x trail runners will tackle the extreme #trailrodrigues to pass along this spectacular coastline … These photos gives a sneak peek of what the athletes from around the world will be running through ????????????️

Incredible effort by @remy.caroline.5, @meunier.arnaud, @tyrodriggirdoryt, @francoisleguatreserve the whole crew. And looking forward to seeing @laurent_valette73, @clo.harper et al out on the route ????????????????????????
