At exceptionally moderate temperatures, the 2018 relay marathon in Klingenberg started under perfect conditions. Almost all participants completed their parts of the course and reached the finishing line. The “WIKA Running Team” came out on top and gained first place.
102 guest teams and 32 WIKA teams took part in the WIKA relay marathon, well-known and very popular indeed right across the region. The subsidiaries fielded teams and individual runners from France, the UK, India, the Middle East, Poland, Russia and Spain. KSR and tecsis were also represented. The fastest WIKA male runner was Markus Heidl with a time of 20:28.4, and his fastest female WIKA counterpart, Nahed Nafez, recorded a time of 25:42.2.
At about 3 p.m., music from the band “Querbeet” got the public into festive mood, followed by an open-air concert that evening from “(d)ra(h)tlos” and “B.L.O.N.D.” These bands delivered a rich sound and rounded off the festivities. The event was ably assisted once again this year by the local associations from Trennfurt, the voluntary fire brigades from Trennfurt and Wörth, the Bavarian Red Cross, THW Obernburg, as well as by massage teams Kroth, Dworschak and Brunner and, not to be forgotten, by many volunteers from WIKA.
Everyone is already looking forward to the 2019 WIKA relay marathon.
