Running against cancer – 210km in 2.5 hours

They ran from our loca­tion in Chem­nitz to Ber­lin. Not in 45 hours as sug­gested by Google Maps, but in only 2.5 hours. Fur­ther­more Google did not take into account the very warm tem­pe­ra­ture of 35°C. This can only be achie­ved as a strong team. 22 run­ners from our staff ran a total of 524 laps in the run­ning against can­cer. This is equi­va­lent to about 210 km – once from Chem­nitz to Ber­lin. A super per­for­mance. The lea­der among the women was Silke Wei­zel, who ran a strong 16.4km…
