Getting back on track! This is what the small sports clubs must and want with their running events. The running event 'Glessen läuft' on May 7 by TSV Glessen is a help on many levels. On the one hand, the running event is considered the perfect start to the summer running season. On the other hand, we are starting out again as a denkwerk team. In the past years, we have always started with more than eleven runners from our ranks. In recent years, this has established itself as a firm team-building measure. In addition, our colleagues were on hand to watch and cheer on the runners and to enjoy a convivial family afternoon. This year, a team is ready again. For this purpose, denkwerk has produced its own running shirt - as in previous years. The running shirt has the motto "denkwerk runs": "Sprint with us" is now the new slogan on the Glessen running shirts. So: Be part of it!
The running event of TSV Glessen has always accompanied a charitable cause since its start. This year, the run supports refugees from Ukraine. On the one hand, refugees can participate for free in 'Glessen runs', on the other hand, the surpluses from all activities around the running event go to people from or in Ukraine. Participation in 'Glessen läuft' is free of charge for refugees. Click here to register. Running for a good cause has almost become a tradition for us at denkwerk.
'Glessen läuft' (runs) has been taking place since 2015. Only once the running event at the gates of Cologne was cancelled.
The day is all about family: beer, fries and cake are available for refreshment before, during and after the runs.
The Children's Olympics is aimed at young running enthusiasts. The course for "the little ones" is 1.2 km - followed by the 5 km run, which is also available as a walking course.
The longest run is over the half marathon distance of 21.5 km. Just under half of the distance is to be completed in the 10 km 'Volkslauf'.
The start and finish for all runs starting of 5 km or more is the 'Waldstadion' in the Glessen Forest.
The organizer of the running event 'Glessen läuft' is the TSV Glessen-glessen.de/. With over 500 active members, the TSV is the largest club in Glessen and thus also one of the largest clubs in the Erftkreis. The SC Schwarz-Gelb Glessen and the Förderverein Sportplatz Glessen e.V. are also involved in the organization of the event.
