Course des As d'août

Châteaurenard - Arènes - Jeux taurins - jeux gardians - In August - Dates and program to be confirmed

A l’origine, la course camarguaise était un jeu taurin où des animaux de toutes sortes (lions, chiens, ours…) et des valets de ferme se mêlaient pour combattre et jouer avec les taureaux. L'athlète faisant face au taureau est appelé raseteur. Le nom vient de raset qui est la technique consistant à passer le plus près possible (raser) du taureau afin de lui enlever les attributs. Le raseteur actuel se prépare toute l’année au face-à-face avec le taureau. Il expose sa vie dans cette lutte poussant toujours plus loin l’exploit sportif pour quelques points de plus au palmarès.
