On 7 June employees of 150 companies from different industries ran 2,400 kilometers in the third edition of Postbank Business Run, the biggest corporate relay race (www.businessrun.begach.com) organised by Begach club and Postbank.

“The team spirit ensures success in each race. Congratulations to every one of you for your enthusiasm and teamwork. For us, at Postbank, every investment in society is valuable and I am happy that today we have your support for a good cause and providing a better future to our children”, Doncho Donev, Head of Capital Markets Division at Postbank said. He awarded the winners in Postbank Business Run 2015.
