Is it really necessary to re-present this mythical trail, the Grand Raid of Reunion Island? A diagonal crossing of Reunion Island, with ampitheatres of mountains. Summits and valleys are surrounded by the wild and unspoilt nature of the island. Fortunately, the Reunion Islanders are ready for this race and will push you to the feat of finishing the “Diagonales des fous”!

“A beautiful descent and a nice climb a good place to refuel before attacking difficult long climbs”

“A great place: a beautiful descent and a nice climb a good place to refuel before attacking difficult long climbs. Le chemin des Anglais, a passage through the history and heritage of the island, the climbs go reasonably well, but the descents.. What a pain! Thankfully the rocky paths are not wet and we do this with the sun rising, beautiful!”
