RacingThePlanet’s seventh Roving Race will take place in Madagascar on 31 August 2014. The unique landscape includes lush rain forest, sheer rock cliffs, desert and savanna all surrounded by thousands of kilometers of pristine, turquoise shore line. This coupled with rich flora and fauna, much of which is not found anywhere else on earth, provide an exotic location for the race.
