Look closely to spot the three runners in the image above.
Olivia Bathfield and Paul Schwab from Fine & Country Mauritius ran the Dodo Trail, one of the most intense 10km races in the world, to raise money for homelessness on Sunday 8th July.
Despite its relatively short distance, the Dodo Trail has serious character. Hundreds of participants braved the dirt roads, single tracks, forest paths, ascents, descents and river crossings. The arduous route featured some of Mauritius’s most breath-taking views, including an amazing rainbow at the top of the mountains.
Olivia Bathfield from Fine & Country Mauritius said: “Paul and I took part in the Dodo Trail to raise funds for a family of seven who live in poverty in Mauritius. Caritas Ile Maurice are helping this family and we would like to build them a safe and secure home. The race was very challenging, but it was a stunning experience and we will definitely look into doing more trails from now on.”
