Our commitments


The environment

CentraleSupélec is committed every year to preserve the environment within the Raid and the Night’N Day. This commitment is crucial in this context of scarcity of resources and climate change. This will of preserving the landscapes that we cross is manifested through an environmental management system within our association.

Our approach allowed us to be certified in line with the ISO 14001 since 2005.

This certification allows us to assure the efficiency and sustainability of our environmental commitments. It is also a proof of seriousness for our partners et local communities.

For this year’s edition, BNPP is one more time our environmental partner.

Our organization commits on the 3 following points, which represent our main expense items in our carbon footprint: waste management, the distribution of eco-cups instead of disposable cups, and a wise use of paper (90% of our communication media carry the Imprim’Vert label). Allowing us to diminish each year the carbon footprint per competitor.

The Quality

The very essence of our quality approach is the training of the association’s members. The organizing team is composed of 80 members, led by second years, so at the end of the year, a new responsible team is elected and the experience and know-how acquired is passed on from one year to the next.

The Raid, which has been ISO 9001 standardised since 2009, is committed to a continuous improvement process. Throughout the year, our progress is compared with the objectives set by the association’s policy according to measurable indicators on a dashboard, to be able to work on our weaknesses. In addition, a risk and opportunity management approach, combined with the study of stakeholders’ expectations, enables us to ensure the quality of our offer and its improvement.

Students & Companies meeting

The Raid CentraleSupélec wants to be a place of privileged exchange between the corporate staff and the students of the Grandes Ecoles. In this sporting atmosphere of surpassing oneself, every moment of the race is conducive to the meetings, and offers to the team the occasion of developing a special bond.

Team renewal


Every year we are committed to organizing handi-welcoming events.

Night N’Day is open to competitors with disabilities and will be able to accommodate mixed handi-valid teams. This commitment to the inclusion of people with disabilities in our sporting events is a meaningful project for the entire CentraleSupélec Raid team. Through this action, our objective is also to raise awareness among participants of disability and to show that sporting events can be accessible to all.

We want to make Night N’Day a flagship inclusive event on the Saclay Plateau, and extend our commitment to the Raid.

To this end, we have joined forces with the FÉDÉEH, an actor committed to the inclusion of students with disabilities, and in particular through sports practice. The FEDEH encourages us and accompanies us every year to make our event accessible to the disabled.

This year we are continuing our project in partnership with the Dunes d’Espoir association.

Its action consists in allowing young people with disabilities to participate in high-level competitions even when their disability would not allow them to run alone.

During Night N’Day 2020, you will have the opportunity to participate in this action, by assembling a joëlette crew. The crews will be made up of experienced Dunes d’Espoir riders and volunteer competitors.

Security is a fundamental value of our organization, and is therefore our top priority.

All members of the association are regularly sensitized to minimise risks. Daily, we do our best to avoid any danger, but if this is not enough, more than half of the staff receive first aid training (PSC1) in order to have the first tools necessary to deal with an emergency situation.

During our races, the Raid CentraleSupélec calls upon doctors specialized in such events. We have been working with Dokever for 15 years. This company has adequate and powerful resources at its disposal to respond to all emergency situations that we may encounter and ensure the safety of our competitors.

During the race, our specific organisation allows us to minimise the risks. In particular, we need to keep a close eye on the evolution and position of our competitors. To do this, each team is equipped with a GPS tracker that allows us to locate it, and members of the organization are regularly positioned on the race. The entire team is in constant communication, thanks to the total radio coverage set up by Progevent, the information circulates quickly and well with the race management. So there is no shadow on the race, and this allows us to intervene very quickly in case of emergency.
