Madagascar Marathon -
8 Night Running Experience
Often referred to as the Eighth Continent and earth’s fourth largest island, Madagascar is one of our newer adventure destinations! The marathon and half-marathon will be held in Isalo in the south-central highlands with most of the course routed through Isalo National Park. This is Madagascar’s most visited area where the country’s oldest dinosaur bones were discovered.
The start will be at the Hotel Relais de la Reine and the finish will be at Hotel Jardin du Roy (its sister property), which is also the race’s headquarters. You will find both hotels blend into the surrounding magnificent hills. They offer an equestrian centre, hiking trails, and complete spa services.
We offer a six-night package with the option to come in a few days early to experience the capital city Antananarivo (Tana) and Lemur Park, which is a great introduction to the wildlife (such as lemurs!) and fauna. In addition, you will have the option to extend your stay to visit more of Madagascar to include hiking in the amazing rainforest(s), lemur treks, and beach resort experiences. This exotic destination is ideal for the runner looking for their next adventure!
