Three other run2gether groups were also on the road in Austria. The route took them from Kals am Großglockner to Burgenland and Styria for the last time for 2021.

Torlauf Dachstein (🇦🇹)

Using a backpack was mandatory

It was an early departure for Japhet Mutwiri MWENDA, Peter Chege WANGARI and their companion on Saturday. At 6.00 a.m. they started from Kals to Ramsau to participate in the Torlauf Dachstein with its 24 km and 500 m of altitude. Of course our runners had little time for the beauty of the landscape on the south side of the Dachstein range, but they wanted to set another great competition at the end of their stay in Europe.
Due to the strict equipment requirements our two athletes had to run with backpacks for the first time (mobile phone and 0.5l of liquid were mandatory). Japhet was the fastest on the varied loop, with Chege right behind him in second place. Immediately after the simple awarding ceremony due to covid, the two left for Vienna, which they will leave on Monday for Kenya. Well done and safari njema guys!

Family Run Lutzmannsburg (🇦🇹)

Helmuth sent us the following lines from Burgenland:

„Lutzmannsburg was worth the trip again.
In summery weather conditions Ronald Ngigi KARUIKI and Francis Maina NJOROGE took part in the main run of the Sonnentherme over 7.5km (3 laps of 2.5km).
We started on the new flat course around the spa on time at 16.30. Right at the beginning our two men took the lead. They ran together for a long time before Ronaldo attacked 500m before the finish and took the victory in 24:23.29, 5 seconds ahead of Karies. The third placed runner was almost 3 minutes behind! Congratulations!

After the race the two enjoyed cooling off in the various areas of the Lutzmannsburg thermal spa and fortified themselves in the restaurant before heading back to Vienna.“

Many thanks Helmuth for this report!

In dem Bericht Großes Sommerfinale in Italien – great summer final in Italy findest du die Zusammenfassung der Bewerbe, die unsere Athleten am gleichen Wochenende in Italien bestritten haben.
In the report Großes Sommerfinale in Italien – great summer final in Italy you will find a summary of the competitions our athletes took part during the same weekend in Italy.

Wir möchten uns bei allen Helferinnen und Helfern von Herzen für die bisherige Unterstützung bedanken. Auch wenn die Saison 2021 pandemiebedingt nicht so viele Bewerbe für uns bereithielt, waren es dennoch an die 35 Bewerbe, an denen unsere Athleten seit Juni 2021 teilgenommen haben. Ohne all die vielen Km in Fahrt- und Betreuungsdiensten zu/von den Bewerben, den privaten Übernachtungsmöglichkeiten, den unzähligen Abhol-und Bringdiensten von Flug/Bahn/Busbahnhöfen, den regelmäßigen Covid-Testungen und der Betreuung der Athleten bei ihren Aufenthalten in Wien wären diese Teilnahmen nicht möglich. Hinter diesen Leistungen stehen alles ehrenamtliche Mitglieder und run2gether Freunde in Österreich, Deutschland, der Schweiz und in Italien, die auch einen großen Anteil an den ausgezeichneten Leistungen unserer Läufer haben! ASANTE SANA!

We would like to thank all our helpers from the bottom of our hearts for their support so far. Even though the 2021 season did not have so many competitions for us due to the pandemic, there were still about 35 competitions in which our athletes have participated since June 2021. Without all the kilometres of travel and support services to/from the competitions, the private accommodations, the countless pick-up and drop-off services from air/train/bus stations, the regular Covid tests and the support of our athletes during their stays in Vienna, these participations would not have been possible. Behind these achievements are all volunteer members and run2gether friends in Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Italy who also play an important role in the excellent performances of our runners! ASANTE SANA!

Euer/your run2gether Team
