The next event where you will see the “Running Carrot”…
.. is not known yet because of the Corona constraints but this year, I will try to run my 211th & last half marathon
My last run was:
the 31st Public Run over 11km at Traisa on Oct 3rd which I ran in 58min40sec – winning my age category
Total number of official road races up to now: 781 + 4 virtual runs
|The BIG 1s in 2019:||On May 19th, I ran the 3 country half marathon at Basel in 2h 4min: luckily, the weather was good and the scenery rather nice – pity that there were not too many spectators ;-(
On September 29th, I finished the 58th Route Du Vin Semi-Marathon at Luxembourg (the oldest half marathon in the world) in 1h 58min.
On November 8th, I won the half marathon in the jungle around Angkor Wat in 2h 17min.
|The Big 1s in 2018:||I enjoyed the 38th Berlin half marathon on April 8th, coming in as the 12024 runner out of 25000 finishers (35000 registered though?!). And I have completed the desert run over 18,8km in the Sahara desert close to Erg Chebbi, Morocco in 3h20min2sec on Oct 23rd. The race was organized by Wichart Hölscher with whom we travelled & ran on the Big Chinese Wall, through the desert in Oman, through the Highlands of Myanmar and on Cyprus.
Boy-oh-boy, the run was tougher than thought: we ran up the dunes, down the dunes – all in the sand – at mid day. I had to walk the last round of approx. 2,3km but I finished in 2nd position Men and 3rd overall.
|The Big 1 in 2015:||the half marathon across the Golden Gate Bridge at San Francisco on July 26th in 2h8min13sec. The top of the bridge was in the clouds and the view onto the city was foggy but it was still a great experience!|
|The Big 1 in 2014:||my 10th Trollinger half marathon in succession at Heilbronn: this time, I did it in 2h5min23sec (PB 1h45min). On each of the runs, I had a sip of the Trollinger red wine at km 20!|
|The Big 1 in 2013:||the 16th CARROTS Run at Hiddestorf over 21,1km on Sep 22nd in 1h54min22sec – being the Carrotking, I HAD to run that one 😉 – very good event with a lot of fun: the Carrotking was very much welcomed http://www.ruebenlauf.de|
