Team sports events are not only very popular with employees, but also with their employers. Company participation in a relay race, such as the Berliner Wasserbetriebe 5 x 5 km TEAM-Relay, offers employees a great incentive to exercise more.
Nobel Prize winner for literature William Faulkner said: "Do not try to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself." Even if the rather less sporty Faulkner was not necessarily applying this quote to sport, it can still explain the fascination of relay races.
Is it possible to run a distance greater than three times around the world in three days? With a team, anything is possible! 5,170 relay teams competed over the three days of this year's Berliner Wasserbetriebe 5 x 5 km TEAM-Relay and covered a total of 129,250 kilometres – a distance that easily reaches three times around the globe along the equator.
