The four members of the"Nature Woman Challenge" set themselves an incredible challenge. Emilie Bertheaume, Barbara Charpentier, Emma Clair Dumont and Géraldine Parodi have completed the "Coast to Coast" challenge: a triathlon of almost 1200 kilometres. For this adventure, they joined forces with the Pure Ocean Foundation to promote ocean research. During this extraordinary sporting journey, they calculated their carbon footprint and made a donation to the association in favour of the sea bed: Spero Mare. For the first stage, they became the first French women to successfully swim the English Channel between Dover and Calais in a relay! They then cycled from Calais to Le Verger d'Auriac in the Vaucluse. To finish on a high note, the sportswomen ran from Verger d'Auriac to the Catalans beach in Marseille... Congratulations to these women for this journey in favour of the environment!
