The Raid international Gaspésie (RIG) is an intense multi-sports adventure race taking place in a breathtaking natural setting of the Gaspésie region in Quebec. The coastal town of Carleton-sur-Mer becomes the background for this sport event for the fourth time, hosting international and national passionate endurance sports athletes. Each edition brings its share of surprises since the race course changes completely to always offer new challenges and allow racers to discover the exceptional beauty of the Gaspésie region. The athletes needs to cover a distance of 300km or 150km across three days in a series of natural-sport disciplines while progressing through an environment where sky, earth and sea are one. The teams will have to rely on their expertise, their judgment, on the trust in their teammates, and to do with the nature and the conditions and not against them.
