The Rutronik half marathon offers running enthusiasts from Karlsruhe, the surrounding area and beyond a unique opportunity to get active in the fan-shaped city. Under the motto "Together to the finish", Rutronik employees will also be taking part in the wide range of running routes. "The health of our colleagues is particularly important to us. That's why, in addition to preventive health care and numerous sports offers, we also provide physiotherapy services, among other things," says Christina Gruber, Senior Director HR Management at Rutronik. With regard to Rutronik's involvement in the Baden Marathon, she adds: "The aim is to actively promote health, vitality and exercise, for example by bringing colleagues together in running teams and also involving young people through an accompanying student campaign."
Numerous highlights along the route and an appealing running course
Germany's third oldest marathon offers an attractive course through the center of Karlsruhe, where culture and nature are not neglected. On the 21.1-kilometer course of the Rutronik half marathon, the runners will pass the ZKM, the former residential city of Durlach, the Citypark Ost, which is well worth seeing, and the market square, among other places. Before the marathon and also after the finish, Rutronik will provide the runners in the "Runner's Heaven" area with sports gel and dextrose, among other things. A good atmosphere is also guaranteed in the spectator stands. Thanks to the new supporting program "Emotion & Beats Marathon", everyone can look forward to bands, musicians and many other entertainers along the course and in the stadium.
Student offer and donation for kilometers covered
Rutronik equips the students with a high-quality running shirt. The students at Rutronik are also looking forward to the upcoming marathon event this weekend with great anticipation. "I'm looking forward to taking part in the event and hope the atmosphere of the spectators at the side of the course will be just as motivating as in previous years," said Meike Schaible, a dual student at Rutronik. The participating students are not only doing something good for their health, but also for others, because Rutronik donates five euros to the charity Lisa hilft e.V. for every kilometer run.
