The Crad'eau is a short format obstacle course. We participate in teams of two people (pairs). It is a "nice" obstacle course of about 6 km : 4 km on the ground and 2 km on the river by canoe. Departures are given in series of 50 people (i.e. 25 pairs). The route takes about 1h30.
Only the first 2 pairs of each series are qualified for the grand final. Moral : not everyone comes to make a time ! Besides, there is no such thing... On the other hand, if you have always dreamed of rolling in the mud disguised as a star dancer (this is an example, don't all come as a star dancer), the Crad'eau is for you !
While most obstacle courses take place over 12 km in the countryside, the Crad'eau has the originality of a course concentrated on a stadium (Espace Soubeyran in Crest), thus offering an amazing race to spectators, all 500 m from the centre of Crest. The second originality of the concept is to link an obstacle course with a canoe race ending under the Crest bridge. Here again : a guaranteed show !
But beware, the race doesn't end with the canoe ! The 2020 edition has many surprises in store for you with an unforgettable finale !
The originality of Crad'eau was recognized by a nomination in the "Obstacles d'or 2016", category "Innovation".
