We had a run: PASCHEN at the 5 x 5 km TEAM relay

As Germany’s biggest relay race, the 5 x 5 km TEAM relay has been one of Berlin’s sporting highlights for years. The big event took place just for the 20th time – and for PASCHEN lawyers, the event was an anniversary: We participated in the event for the 10th Time and enriched the running event with highly motivated young athletes, impressive maturity and a lot of good humor.

On 14 June 2019, we sent three teams with 15 runners to the 5-km-stage through the Berlin Tiergarten. At 29 degrees at the start, they earned the respect of those PASCHEN-colleagues who preferred to play the role of Spectators and together as our in-house catering team provided all staff with drinks and culinary delights. Thanks to plenty of water at the refreshment points and cold outdoor showers, each of our runners bravely survived on the track and reached the finish with very good times.

In the end, team spirit counts more than a place on the podium. And so the sporting challenge created the perfect supporting program for our relaxed team picnic in a unique atmosphere, which ended late in the evening.

Thousands of running enthusiasts, associations, clubs and recreational athletes participate in the running event of the SCC and Berliner Wasserbetriebe each year. A total of 5,985 relay teams with 29,925 runners registered for the three days of the event – a new record for the event, where we will definitely be back next year.
