Green Tree Raid


One hundred per cent nature and one hundred per cent female participants, the 11th edition of the Green Tree Raid took place against the magnificent backdrop of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean.

Eighty teams of three women each gathered at this idyllic location to compete in various challenges including canoeing, trekking and mountain biking and in temperatures exceeding 30 degrees the going was tough.
