The Experience of your Life

5 Ultramarathons on 5 Continents, a unique sporting and human adventure who values the performance, consistency and versatility.

I think there is no better way to hear, see and feel a new place than to run on my two feet.


In January 2022, we organized the first edition of NOMAD in Finnish Lapland. For the second edition, we propose you a completely different environment: find us in the African bush in Senegal in January 2024.


Since 2010, we have had the chance to meet many participants from all over the world. The Hall Of Fame honors some of those who have written the history of Canal Aventure.


The Ultimate Challenge

THE TRACK is a format of challenge XXL: 520 km in 9 stages and 10 days of competition in food self-sufficiency. THE TRACK Series offers 5 ultramarathons in THE TRACK format on 5 continents.
