Danzer engineers show their athletic side
Danzer employees can be motivated runners - we have described this before. The engineers and students of our engineering team in Kesselsdorf, Germany, have now also proven their motivation and their energy during a running event.
On May 23, 2018, thirteen Danzer employees from Kesselsdorf attended the 10th REWE Team Challenge in Dresden, the largest business run in the region. Among them were engineers from the Danzer Engineering Team as well as wood technology students who are currently completing their internship at Danzer.
A total of 20,000 runners wove 5 km through the city of Dresden. Accompanied by drummers, cheerleaders, music and numerous spectators, it went through the historic old town of Dresden to the football club’s stadium. Since a disposal of a bomb from the Second World War was carried out at the same time, traffic throughout the city of Dresden basically came to a total halt.
The weather really felt like summer with 24 degrees, however, for running it could have been 10 degrees less. Fortunately, at kilometer 4, there was a cold shower for all runners that let us finish the race at least a little bit refreshed. At the finish line we were greeted by music and a medal. The evening was rounded off with plenty of food, drinks and fireworks in the stadium.
The run definitely marks a highlight of the Danzer sports activities. Some employees meet regularly in or around Dresden to do sports together - including hiking, climbing and bouldering. Next year we want to repeat our success in the business run and compete in an even larger team.
