Santa Claus at the 3rd Berlin Easter Run
Advocaat and Easter eggs at the run through the Grunewald forest
2003-04-18While around the world runners are racing their best times at the spring classic races, Berliners are testing their form and improving their times at training races.
At 2 p.m. on Easter Saturday, the SFB Running Movement is offering its traditional training in the Tiergarten Park, with start and finish at the Siegessäule at the corner of Hofjägerallee. John Kunkeler will open the Easter weekend together with the running trainers from SCC-RUNNING.
At 9:00 a.m. on Easter Sunday, April 20, 2003, Berlin runners (and tourists) can participate in the traditional 3rd Berlin Easter Run organised by SCC- RUNNING. Start and finish are at the Mommsen Stadium, Waldschulallee 34 in Charlottenburg.
Bernd Hübner will run his traditional Grunewald training course (a 10 km fun course), with an Easter egg hunt at the Teufelssee and a large running Easter Bunny (Wolfgang Paech). Last year he was accompanied by a runner dressed as Santa Claus.
The forester Lippert from the Forest District Saubucht will receive a bottle of advocaat from the thankful runners, who get fresh water from him all year long when they train in the Grunewald.
Fitting for the day, at the finish the Easter Bunny will give the runners a sip of advocaat and other treats instead of the normal refreshments.
No registration necessary—just come and run!
The sport department Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf will open Mommsen Stadium for the Easter runners to change and shower—Thanks!
