As part of the Race for Pure Ocean initiative, in June 2019 Brice Bonneviale finished the Enduroman in 75h45mn, thus becoming the 37th person to complete this extreme triathlon. On June 22nd, he started his journey from Marble Arch, London, and ran the 14Okm to Dover in 16h55mn before diving into the waters of the Channel. Landing on French soil after defying the cold and the strong currents for 21h51mn, he got on his bike for the last 290km, which he traveled in 14h37mn. He reached the Arc de Triomphe in Paris at 11:45 p.m. on June 25th. His reason to go through with this: participating in the project carried out by Pure Ocean, that finances innovations destined to protect the oceans and their biodiversity.
An exceptional challenge to launch the Race for Pure Ocean series. By undertaking this athletic challenge that demands high levels of endurance and the ability to push one’s limits, Brice wished to contribute to raise awareness about current environmental issues that are threatening not only our oceans, but the entirety of our planet’s ecosystems. As part of this ecological commitment, while Brice’s team followed him throughout the race, they picked up the rubbish they found along the way. Oceans lover, he also hoped to increase public understanding of the extent of the threats facing our oceans and put forward the solutions that exist to protect them. He therefore chose to use this challenge to raise funds for Pure Ocean.
