Kitted out in the same red t-shirts, the highly enthusiastic Red Runners of all ages from SEW-EURODRIVE have been competing in the Hope Run since 2012. And since 2014 they have come out top in the team ranking, which only includes the results of the adult runners in the main run.
Each lap is 3.7 kilometers long and passes through downtown Bruchsal and the castle gardens. Our adult Red Runners did us proud, completing no fewer than 814 laps – which works out at 3011.8 kilometers – by the end of the day. What’s more, not one but two SEW-EURODRIVE employees made it onto the podium, Thomas Uhl und Manuel Bub both placed 3rd in the individual ranking with 11 laps each. When the first event of this kind was held in 1998, it was still called the Itzellauf. From just under 200 participants at the outset, numbers have increased to some 3.361 runners in 2017.
