"Aachen is looking for the sportiest company in the Euregio“ - Ramona Richter, Gereon Bürvenich, Jonas Schüppen, Roy Hermanns, Tore Grünert and Michael Thärigen gladly took up this challenge and set out on the 4.8 kilometer route at the end of September. The team-building for the gts All Stars was not least the running shirts with the new gts logo and new corporate color. A total of 7,777 runners from 540 companies started at the popular event.
Optimised times - without software for a change.
gts has been taking part in the Aachen company run and B2Run for several years and is getting better every year. The mixed team in particular was able to score points and reached 28th place on the 4.8 km distance (out of 458 teams!). In the men's team ranking, the gts All Stars landed 55th out of 288 teams. Above all, Ramona Richter really accelerated in 24:02 minutes and Gereon Bürvenich in 20:50 minutes. It was followed by Michael Thärigen (21:38 min), Tore Grünert (22:48 min), Jonas Schüppen (28:17 min) and Roy Hermanns (30:55 min).
“We haven't optimized our tours, but our performance. The great times motivate us for the coming races, ”explains Michael Thärigen with a view to the Aachen B2Run in April. Of course, the event should also encourage even more employees to take part. That is why the athletes were celebrated a bit with an internal handover of certificates.
Even if nothing “runs” at running events nowadays without heart rate monitors, trackers, GPS devices and pedometers - the employees could do without their route planning and tour optimization software, which is normally everything at gts. The circuit was well signposted.
