KOHLER Takes Part in First Corporate Run in Lahr
The first corporate run was held in Lahr on July 12, 2019. According to the organizer, around 118 companies with about 1800 runners took part, including KOHLER Maschinenbau GmbH with a strong squad of 26 employees.
KOHLER had spent weeks preparing for the run. Information about the event had been distributed within the company, details had been discussed, and running shirts selected. The result was a motivated team made up of participants from a wide range of departments and a level of excitement that rose with each passing day. Perfect weather shone down on the KOHLER runners as they assembled at the Lahr lakeside park. As the saying goes, it's the taking part that counts, and the atmosphere at the former horticultural show grounds was incredible. The run is primarily a sporting event, but not in the conventional sense: No fastest times were recorded at the five-kilometer race, which started and ended in the lakeside park. Instead what matters is the group size per company and how creative their running gear is. But above all, it is about having fun together away from the usual working environment. A lively program of activities kept everyone entertained and ample food and drink was available. For KOHLER, the Lahr corporate run is a fantastic event and a lot of fun – we look forward to participating in the next one!
