Raid in France 2017: 2 to 10 June
Appointment in Ardèche at the lake of Devesset, ideal nature spot for this 9th edition of Raid in France. Sunday, June 4, for the start of the race, familial, musical and sporting events throughout the day.
Raid in France, rule #1
Here are the 4 golden rules needed to understand Raid in France. Rule #1: the race is to be completed by a mixed team of four. Objective : the entire team reaching the finish line and having passed all of the check points of the route.
Like all rounds of the ARWS, Raid in France is defined by an itinerary between a departure and arrival point. A road-book indicates the chain of events : trekking, mountain bike, mountaineering, rafting, canoeing, caving…
Raid in France will be in the world raid adventure circuit ARWS. In 2017, the final is held in United States. The teams advance 24h/24 and must organise their rest time. On program: 420 km non-stop and 12,000 meters uphill.
The common denominator of all ARWS races: complete immersion and autonomy in the wild. No gps navigation systems for orientation, no telephones, no contact with the outside world. The teams experience this adventure on their own within the territories they cross.
