Course Extrême is an original idea of Unity Productions, specialists for more than 20 years in special event and corporate event production and promotion. Unity Productions proposes turnkey projects and has a complete range of up-to-the-minute technology equipment. Its expertise, experience and creativity, not to mention today’s enthusiasm for obstacle course racing, inspired Unity Productions to create Course Extrême. In 2014, on the 45 Degrés Nord site, a vast, 5 million square foot area, already owned by Unity Productions, was used to create the ultimate obstacle course: Course Extrême. Not only can this comprehensive site maintain permanent obstacles, it can also welcome different groups for each special and corporate event.
