The event’s official ambassador

Olympic medalist Christine Arron is a world champion French track and field sprinter. Today, she is the ambassador for the Colas Team Cup.

Christine shares the fundamental values of Colas Team Cup – going beyond one’s own limits, team spirit, conviviality, fair-play and solidarity. She spent her entire career spreading the same messages, making her mark in world track and field with a number of impressive records: she is the European record-holder in the 100 m (10’73’’), European champion in 100 m, World champion in relay 4X 100 m. She is the fourth fastest woman of all time on 100 m. Nevertheless, above and beyond her records, it is her stance in the fight against doping that has made our ambassador an exemplary figure in the world of sport.

Today, Christine Arron works at the French Track and Field Federation to develop sport in business. She will be happy to share her expertise and experience throughout the competition.

International challenge

The Colas Team Cup is a competition open to all employees of the Colas Group over the age of 18 with a permanent, long-term employment contract (excluding fixed-term contracts, internships, apprenticeships and temporary assignments).

It was created to give all Group employees a unifying, dynamic and unforgettable experience, to encourage bridge building and networking, to stimulate and promote team spirit, and to foster human values.

The latest news

Towards the Colas Team Cup 2019

The first edition of the Colas Team Cup in 2017 was a great success. Federating Group employees around a major international sporting event was a challenge... and we did it! Gathered around common values ​​such as going beyond one’s own limits, team spirit, conviviality and solidarity, you made the Colas Team Cup a very memorable moment and a new can’t-miss event.

That’s why I decided to roll out the second edition of the Colas Team Cup. Registration begins in March. The local selections will be an opportunity for you to create a real team spirit which, I hope, will take you on to the international finals in Paris in February 2020.

Show fair play when you participate in sports events. Applaud the athletes, coaches and organizers who bring the Colas Team Cup to life.

This event belongs to you: build your teams and enjoy yourselves!

I officially declare the second edition of the Colas Team Cup open.

Hervé Le Bouc.
