Two rowing events on the Canal du Midi

The ATPPR (Association Toulouse Pierre Paul Riquet) is offering two events from Monday 19 to Saturday 24 August 2024
between Toulouse and Béziers.
The Rallye du Canal du Midi for its 41st edition and the Enduro Canal will be the 3rd!
In an exceptional tourist setting, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site,
You will be able to participate in either of these events that will take place over the same period.

Canal du Midi Rally

Labelled Randon’aviron by the French Rowing Federation, this ride is done in a yolette whose crew is composed of 4 rowers, 1 coxswain and 1 cyclist minimum to a maximum of 3 allowing them to take turns, ensure their assistance (boarding, disembarking, etc.) and their safety.

This hike requires a sufficient level of fitness and rowing to complete stages of more than 20 kilometres with a crew.
The 167 km route is made up of 8 stages dotted with 41 locks crossed on foot with a portage between Carcassonne and La Redorte.

A visit to the city of Carcassonne as well as a winegrower’s tasting are available by reservation during the afternoon of rest after loading the trailer.

Speed and performance should not make us forget sporting values: team spirit, respect for others, respect for the site, etc

VNF (Voie Navigable de France) is a long-standing partner of our event. Originally, VNF was a logistical support and it still is! But the colored canker attacking the plane trees has arrived, and soon the superb vault of greenery will be just a memory.

Since 2014, the ATPPR has wanted to participate in the replanting of this magnificent waterway, which became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996. Thus the ATPPR donates to the sponsorship mission of VNF €10 per participant.

Vaisselle réutilisable / reusable tableware

The insurer MAIF is also a partner that has never given up. It has made it possible to offer the Rallye du Canal du Midi stamped t-shirt for many years and since last year has supported us in our Eco-Responsible approach, which has been in place for a long time by the ATPPR with selective sorting.

Today, disposable tableware is over and replaced by reusable ones.
The MAIF therefore supported us by financing its rental.
