Sports event, 10 years UTOP

Excitement, strive, endurance, surprises, uphill climbs, smiles.

The Ultra Trail des Ô Plateaux (UTOP) has kept all its promises during its tenth anniversary.

Created by a group of trail runners, the UTOP competition has become an inescapable sporting event during the past ten years in Madagascar.

The passion for sport, the love of nature, the desire to discover incredible landscapes are the core of this initiative.

On May 5th, 6th and 13th, 2018, no less than 1,500 runners faced elevation differences from 10 to 121 km.

As every year, the runners did not fail to go through the checkpoints to validate their passage, and took the opportunity to quench their thirst with a Lipton Ice Tea or Gatorade drink offered by the company ALDIS, subsidiary of the group EDL, partner of the event.
