Hildesheim, 5. September 2019: Hildesheim Company Run
Perfect weather, good atmosphere and great teams at the fourth Hildesheim Company Run 2019 at the Hohnsensee 2019.
With 2.300 runners, the Hildesheim Company Run reached a new record. After the event started with 800 participants in 2015 under the slogan “Fit after work”, the number of participants increased from year to year. The KSM team was there right from the beginning and participated with 27 runners this year.
The combination of fitness and community is obviously going down well. Teams from companies and institutions from different industrial sectors took part as well as schools, hospitals and crafts-companies.
Apart from the 3,5 km walking distance, a running distance of 5,5 km and 9,5 km was offered. With a time of 34:33 min over the 9,5 km distance, Jonas Franzki was second over this distance and the best runner in the KSM team. In addition, the KSM team was third in the team rating. Juri Degenstein was the best KSM runner over the 5,5 km distance with a time of 27:15 min.
The organization of this event deserves a lot of praise, as time measurement and track safety were excellent. In short, a great event once again!
Thanks to all colleagues for their participation and congratulations to your top performances!
