What is a multisport adventure race ?
A multisport adventure race is a sport (endurance) event that combines various sports disciplines such as mountain biking, running / trail running, rollerblading and canoeing / kayaking. But that’s not all ! The course is embellished with playful activities (eg bowling, zipline, blowgun, games of intelligence etc.), which will only be revealed during the race day.
These events take place in teams of two to four people who always participate together in the activities proposed on the course, in a collaborative way. The race can vary from a few hours to several days, and takes place mostly in a natural area (mainly forests).
One of the essential points of this kind of multisport race is the orienteering part. In doing so, other qualities than pure sport endurance are used. The teams must absolutely know how to orient themselves in the field, in order to validate beacons that will attest to their passage through the various control points.
The key words of the GRAAL are: nature, commitment, respect, friendliness, endurance and autonomy.
