The 28 competitors from Groupe BPCE set out on October 13 and crossed the finish line last Sunday at the end of a unique sporting and human adventure!
They ran or cycled continuously for 4 days and 4 nights, either alone, with a partner, or successively in relays… putting their hearts and souls into the exploit! On Sunday, October 17, the two teams representing Groupe BPCE – the BPCE Community and the Natixis Beyonders – crossed the finish line of the 34th edition of the Course du Cœur after covering nearly 800km (500 miles) between Paris and Bourg Saint Maurice-Les Arcs, the capital of the Haute-Tarentaise region.
Motivated as never before to rise successfully to this sporting challenge and, above all, to heighten the general public’s awareness of the importance of organ donation, our 28 competitors conveyed the values of solidarity, determination and surpassing oneself throughout this sporting feat. And with excellent results to crown it all!
The Natixis Beyonders team finished in 2nd place out of the 16 companies taking part, and the BPCE Community team, which was taking part for the very first time, came in 4th.
The 34th edition of this ultramarathon relay race will undoubtedly remain a unique experience for everyone involved, a moment of joy, powerful memories, and intense emotions. A huge word of congratulations to everyone involved!
