VWGIS colleagues take part in the Chemnitz company run
In the middle of September the Chemnitz company run took place, one of the biggest running events in Saxony. This year, our VWGIS colleagues from the Zwickau site also participated and report about their team event in today's article.
In best summer weather and pleasant 24 degrees the VWGIS running team met in the city center of Chemnitz. To find oneself in the crowd at the beginning was not that easy on this day. A staggering 9,350 participants were registered for the company run over 5 km through the city center and around the Schlossteich.
Among each other, one could already feel the excitement before the start and bets were made among each other, who would be the fastest of the VWGIS runner team 😉
Well-equipped with the new company jerseys, the runner team was easily recognizable among the 521 registered companies. In the third start wave at 6:45 p.m., the race finally got underway! Everyone stretched again, high-fived and went! Cheered on by many spectators and carried by the kick that such a race triggers, the hunt for the best time began.
Sharing the same hobby with so many people was a lot of fun for the VWGIS team. And creative as funny were also the ideas that many a company had come up with for the category "most creative company".
The route was well chosen and went from the center to the green and around the castle pond. And before you knew it, the finish line had already been crossed!
Full of joy and also a little exhausted, the VWGIS colleagues arrived at the finish line one after the other. All of them were satisfied with their personal best times and so the running team celebrated their success at a joint dinner.
