Published on 29/11/2023 | La rédaction


Like last year, the commune of La Chapelle-Erbrée, near Vitré (Ille-et-Vilaine), will be mobilizing with a number of challenges from Friday December 1 to Sunday December 3.

The Va y avoir du sport association in La Chapelle-Erbrée, near Vitré (Ille-et-Vilaine) is renewing its activities for the Telethon next weekend. While some of the actions are being repeated, others are out of the ordinary.

Return of the Cap'scade

Because it's such a popular event, the famous "Cap'scade" is back. The aim is to climb as high as possible by vertically stacking as many wine crates as possible.

The aim is to create the tallest, strongest tower in the West.

To go even higher, a safety harness and ropes connected to the hook of a crane are provided. The event takes place on Saturday, December 2 from 2pm to 5pm, and on Sunday, December 3 from 9am to 10:45am. The price is €3 for a trial, and €5 for both.

3637-meter relay

The 36.37 start is also back on Saturday. The idea here is to take it in turns to cycle, run or walk 3637 meters. The number of meters is a reference to the number you need to dial to make a donation.

The challenge takes place on Saturday, with a minimum of 36 loops, and continues on Sunday with 37 loops. The competition is open to all, and starts from the village.

In the same vein, a " Capcyclothon " bike ride will also take place on Saturday, December 2. This is a new event, and the aim is to cycle around the commune over an 18 km course. Departure is at 2.30pm. You'll need a yellow vest and helmet.

Theater and Capathlon

The school and library are joining forces to offer a Christmas tea party at the library, with storyteller Gilles Bouger, from 3pm to 5pm on Saturday, December 2.

Back to school with the dictation challenge with Les As de l'orthographe. This is your chance to challenge your friends, parents or grandparents. Also on Saturday at 5:30 p.m. in the Salle de la Crêperie.

The day closes at 8:30 p.m. in the Salle Polyvalente with theater by Les Cap'Zélés in their play Pilote de Guigne. Tickets cost 6 euros for adults and 3 euros for children under 12. All proceeds from the performance will be donated to AFM-Téléthon.

Another new feature of this 2023 edition will be the " Capathlon". This activity will involve precision throwing on a circuit. It can be found continuously in the town center. Participation costs €1, and there are many prizes to be won.


Finally, on Sunday December 3, the raffle draw will take place from 12 noon, in front of the former crêperie.

The team will be selling oysters, family brioche or chocolate boxes for €8, and paella for €12, to eat in or take away.

All donations are welcome. The association points out that donations are tax-exempt up to 66% for individuals.
