On the 27th of May 2018 we will meet as a community for the “sponsor´s run” family day on the Grendelmatte in Riehen. It shall be more than only a sporting event; we want to share time with young and old.
We will first celebrate a family open air meeting – if the weather is good underneath the shade-giving trees next to the sports field, if it rains, inside the tent. The band will play and the sermon will be based on the theme “Completing the course of life”.
Afterward the athletes will have some time to change clothes and get ready for the run. At 11:45 o’clock athletes over 14 years will start on their laps, they will be joined by the children and teenagers at 12:30 o’clock. Incidentally, you can not only participate as a runner, but also with your bike, scooter or roller skates.
All athletes will certainly be grateful for strong support from the sideline. However, you won’t need to hand them water or food because this will be taken care of. Verbal cheers and encouragements on the other hand are welcome. And because we don’t want anyone to get bored or exhausted, there will be a BBQ with meat, salad and drinks at around 12 o’clock.
We would be very grateful for your support also by contributing a salad or cake for this occasion. If so, please sign up on the list which will be put up soon in the hall.
The run will end at 1pm and hopefully many laps will have been run. Fifteen minutes later there will be an honouring of the persons who have completed the biggest amount of rounds and also those who have collected the largest amount sponsored. They will receive a small price.
However the event does not end with the award ceremony. There will be an opportunity to enjoy fellowship and spend time together on the Grendelmatte during the afternoon as well. I hope we can enjoy a very sociable Corps Sunday outdoors.
So, there is an opportunity for everyone to participate: as an athlete, sponsor and/or an encouraging spectator on the sideline. Sponsors and athletes can register online (on our homepage) or by form (in front of our hall). SO be there!
