Excellent successes for SCC RUNNING

For the running year 2003 in Berlin, to our great pleasure almost all of the

races showed an increase in number of participants. Numerous event organisers

had to restrict participation to assure a smooth organisation. The enthusiasm

for running in Berlin continues-both outside of any formal organisation (just

having fun moving and the health aspects play a key role) and at the numerous

races organised in Berlin for the general public by the clubs.

“With this number of participants for a single year, SCC RUNNING is by

far the largest running event organiser in Germany,“ commented Horst

Milde, the head of the successful series of running events. “Through the

anniversary year with the 20th AVON Berlin Women’s Run, the 30th real,-

BERLIN MARATHON and the 40th Berlin Cross Country Run, the organisational team

from SCC RUNNING achieved excellent results for which they can be proud.”

In addition, SCC RUNNING organises numerous opportunities to train throughout

the year - also in cooperation with the RBB Running Movement - which animate

the Berliners to run, walk, and participate. The motto “RUN BERLIN

RUN“ keeps the city moving and gives new impulses.
