The almost worldwide Corona pandemic has brought great turmoil to all our lives. Even those who were spared from infection or even Covid-19 disease experienced a number of restrictions. But besides home schooling and home office, there were also some positive aspects. For example, many people discovered jogging for themselves – to keep fit and as a balance to computer work. We at TSCNET are happy to support this! As a little replacement for the world-famous Oktoberfest – the world’ s largest festival had to be cancelled this year for the first time since the end of World War II – we invited people to participate in the “Oktoberfest Run” with “VirtualRunners” at the beginning of October.
Our employees could choose to run a 5 or 10 km long course, from any location they wanted. Everyone ran for himself – in true “social distancing” – but in a real competition. The runs were documented together with the time – and a lot came together: Besides runs along the Isar or through the huge English Garden in the city centre, others chose the Olympic Park or the Nymphenburg Palace Park. All in all no real substitute for the “Wiesn”, but either way a good idea. In the next few days, all participants will receive their medal – perhaps this will spur them on for the next run. Good luck, good legs!
