Munich is considered beeing a pioneer of modern city runs: for 35 years, the City Run has been taking place in the Isar metropolis, and has taken participants through the English Garden and Ludwigstraße, among others. ‘Sport Check’ is organizing the run this year on the 29th of June, whereby participants can choose between three route lengths: Half Marathon, 10 and 5 kilometre runs. For young sportsmen up to 12 years of age, DAK-Kinderlauf (Children’s Run) is being organised as an activity for them. The fittest companies in the city will be determined in the company rankings…
Also, Platzl Hotel is being sportive this year, and will send its best athletes into the field. Although Hotel staff generally cover many miles for their guests, special preparation is needed for the endurance run. That’s why the end of June is the right time for regular running training. Also, Director Heiko Buchta has taken up the challenge, and has been practicing diligently for the run in the courtyard garden. You can track the training progress of our runners in the coming weeks on Facebook. For special motivation, we are making a sporting donation commitment: for every kilometre that our participants run or walk, 20 euros will be donated to the Nicolaidis Foundation. This foundation helps children and young adults who have lost an important caregiver.
You can track live on Facebook how director Buchta and our employees are faring in the June 29 charity. Cheer for the Platzl’s runners and encourage them to run for one or two additional kilometers. The more we run, the more donations come – so, to all of us: Off we go! ☺
