Running the Heidelberg Halfmarathon
The Heidelberg half marathon is one of the most prestigious sports events in the Rhein-Neckar area. Each year 3.500 runners compete in this 21.1km race around the old town including two serious climbs on the north and south bank of the river Neckar.
But the race starts two months before the actual starter's gun: When the participation lists open (usually on a Saturday at midnight) it takes less than 48 hours to fill the 3.500 vacant seats in the race.
IWR first participated with a runner team in 2011 and this year we intend to improve our team both in personal quality and in sheer quantity. If you want to join the fun, send an email to either Jörg Langowski or Michael Winckler.
2014 Participants (starter list IWR)
2013 Participants (starter list IWR)
In 2013, we aim to consolidate the HGS MathComp team. With 10 and 14 runners in the last two years, a solid team of the graduate school participated and preliminary discussions show that this tradition should continue. The list below will fill up during the next two weeks -- when the registration closes on March 9th/10th, we might see veterans as well as newcomers joining the team. Let's see ...
2012: IWR Team & Results
This year we would like to turn this race into a sponsoring event: Race participants are looking for sponsors who are donating money for charity in case "their" participant reaches a certain preset goal.
This year's donations will support AMSEL Kontaktgruppe Heidelberg, a local contact group for patients of multiple sclerosis. Elke Pietschmann, assistant at the head office of IWR, is an active member of this group and initiated the contact. Suggested sponsoring would be: 10 Euro for reaching the finish line, 15 Euro for beating the "minimum goal" and 25 Euro for beating the "ambitious goal" set time. I'm sure we can find sponsors for all participants!!
