Rémi CAMUS was born on July 17th, 1985 in the city of Saint Doulchard in the Cher region of France.
His academic career predestined him for a great career in the world’s greatest 5 star hotels, but everything changed when he read a book. In one night, he devoured the tale of a Franco-Moroccan man who embarked on a journey across the American continent… while running. “If he can do it, then why can’t I” he thought to himself.
In 2011, he embarked on his first adventure totally alone, running from South to North across Australia. Not to mention, it’s a 5,400-kilometre journey! He organizes his activities alone, without any assistance and in total autonomy. He tows a trailer of his own making, weighing forty kilos, and tugged on three wheels.
In 2013, Rémi Camus will be swimming down the Mekong in a Hydrospeed raft in order to better understand the people who live along the river and particularly about access to water issues. A journey of more than 4,400 kilometres in complete all by himself for six months along Tibet, China, Laos, Burma, Thailand, Cambodia and the Mekong Delta in Vietnam.
Rémi Camus is known on television the TV show WILD, the race to survive, an adventure and survival program presented on the television channel M6 by Stéphane Rotenberg. In pairs, the participants are abandoned in a circle at equal distances from the centre. They have three days and two nights to reach the center as soon as possible under penalty of elimination, without food and water. Broadcasted for five weeks in March of 2018, Rémi Camus won the game.
In the summer of 2018, Rémi completed the swimming Tour de France to raise public awareness of the urgent need to preserve our ecosystem, especially the most important resource, water. He swam about twelve hours a day to reach thirty kilometres at each stage. From Dunkirk to Monaco, Rémi Camus covered 2,650 kilometres and completed his third expedition on September 16th 2018 after three and a half months of adventure.
Like many adventurers and explorers, Rémi wears a WRX Black O on a daily basis and on all his expeditions.
