A gradually codified sport
Camargue races were first named free races as they did not have fixed rules. They gradually evolved into a true sport after stricter rules appeared in the 20th century and gave them a new status. The creation of the Fédération Française de Course Camarguaise finalized their development with their recognition by the Ministry of Sports. The races are now practiced in several departments of the lower Rhône valley (Bouches-du-Rhône, Gard, and Hérault) as well as some villages in Vaucluse. The absence of bull killing in Camargue races constitutes their main difference with Andalusian races.
