Le The Centaure Raid 2021, organized by the Equestrian Tourism Center A Hue et a Dia, will take place from 26 to 28 November 2021, at Sommant, in the Bourgogne region (71, France).

The Centaure is a orienteering and regularity phase (POR). This atypical test unfolds in two steps, by night, on a distance around hundred kilometers.

64 participants - 3 groups of 3 people, 17 groups of 2 and 21 individuals - French but also English and Spanish people, will compete by night on this territory located in the center of the Regional Natural Parc of the Morvan.  

An outstanding edition

2021 marks the 50 years of this test and the 40 years of the Center A Hue et a Dia, two birthdays to celebrate with an outstanding edition. " An outstanding edition, in terms of kilometers to run and of difficulties to face. The Morvan, is the mountain, the cold, a lot of paths in the forest, but especially one of the most arid places in France " explains Jean de Châtillon, organizer of the Centaure Raid 2021.

Riders will sometimes run more than 30 kilometers without coming across paved roads, but the most important for them will be to find controllers who, placed on the path, will wait for them with a lot of uplifting things.

Alone or with a partner, with prepared horses, every rider expects to share with his travel companion around 34 hours over the 48 hours of the competition. "

An aventure off beaten tracks

" The physical integrity of these brave horses will be preserved thank to vet controls all along the test. This event gathers motivated riders around a friendly, dynamic and festive atmosphere. This is this kind of atmosphere that equestrian tourism riders like and research " underlignes Jean de Châtillon.

He invites you to join this adventure, off the beaten tracks, " an adventure of a lifetime ".
