2016 Diagonale Des Fous Live Coverage

The Ultra-Trail World Tour wraps up this weekend on Réunion Island at the Diagonale des Fous . The 167-kilometer (104-mile) race climbs 9,700 meters (31,800 feet) as runners traverse the island from roughly south to north. They’ll run some miles on pavement, through agricultural areas, around the island’s three high-altitude volcanic cirques, and back down to the ocean again over some of the most technical singetrack iRunFar has ever seen on a race course. Runners will also experience the biggest fan field in trail and ultrarunning as some 20,000 islanders will be on hand for the start alone and many thousands more will cheer from along the course and at the finish in the island’s main city of Saint-Denis. Runners will no doubt experience a meshing of nature and culture as they traverse Réunion Island.
