Event update from June, 18th, 2021
After the euphoria about the restart of a few of our long-distance events, we have to put the brakes on the Berliner Wasserbetriebe 5x5 km TEAM Relay
At the beginning of June, we set the stage for #restartrunning by announcing in-person events at adidas Runners City Night, the GENERALI BERLIN HALF MARATHON and the BMW BERLIN- MARATHON. Over the past eight months, we have developed comprehensive hygiene concepts for our events with experts and are well on the way to implementing them. We are planning pilot projects for these three events in collaboration with the Berlin Senate, similar to projects already implemented for a few team sports events in the sports metropolis of Berlin.
However, we regret to announce that the Berliner Wasserbetriebe 5x5 km TEAM relay planned for August 11-13, 2021, with its special character of running and celebrating together, is not compatible with the required hygiene concepts in the current situation and accordingly cannot take place. In contrast to the three events mentioned above, among other things, it will not be possible to fully comply with the adherence to hygiene rules such as the wearing of masks (before the start and after the finish) alone during the repeated handing over of the baton as well as during the cherished catering in tents and on picnic blankets. We did not make this decision lightly, but as we considered the health of all participants, we came to the conclusion that we could not offer our runners the TEAM relay celebration they are used to.
In the next few weeks, we will submit an offer to the participants and team captains with details on the further procedure (postponement of the starting place; further options) around the Berliner Wasserbetriebe 5 x 5 km TEAM Relay.
In order to be informed in good time concerning the start of registration for the 2022 edition, we recommend our free newsletter >>.
We look forward to celebrating an in-person relay festival with you next year - from June 15-17, 2022!
