The Ultra AFRICA Race in Mozambique was a great adventure and a wonderful experience. I was so happy, that I signed up for my next adventure with Jerome and his team just after my return to Germany.
The Ultra AFRICA Race is a 220 km foot race in 5 stages, with 3600 meters of positive elevation in Self-Supported. Each competitor must carry a backpack containing the compulsory equipments, food and personal equipments. The event takes place on the African continent, in the Southern of Mozambique.
Participants must follow the route as marked by the organizers and they have a road book. There are check points located at regular intervals. Every night a bivouac is proposed by the organization. A technical support and a medical team are present during the event.
Competitors who cannot respect the limit time: the time limit is 10 hours per stage, can stay in the race. They will be classified with their kilometers run during the event.
The Ultra AFRICA Race will take place in 2019 in Southern Mozambique, in the provinces of Gaza and Inhambane.
