Together for a good cause!
On 11.6. we run again around the Baldeneysee - or the same distance somewhere else in the world. For those who might not be able to do it so well anymore!
In December 2019, Katja's journey as a runner began with a Fit for Fun training plan for beginners. The first running session amounted to 8×2 minutes of jogging - and already during the first two minutes she thought she was going to die... however, she pulled through, and managed to jog for 30 minutes at a stretch after only 6 weeks. After that, she had tasted blood.
The first big goal: a circumnavigation of Lake Baldeney in June 2020. A group of 8 runners was quickly put together to run around the lake in uniform T-shirts. The Resi-Run was born. In 2022 it was held for the first time as a charity run in favor of the German Multiple Sclerosis Society, with almost forty runners who together "earned" 1200€ in donations. And this year it is going to be even bigger!
Why did she choose this particular organization? Her own husband has MS, which severely limits his walking. Katja and all those involved walk along, so to speak, for all those who can no longer do so!
So by signing up for this run, you're not only doing something for your health, you're also supporting the German MS Society - to help it find new treatments for this insidious disease.
Less the costs for T-shirts, food and postage, all proceeds will be donated. After the run, a check will be presented to a representative of the German MS Society.
The Resi Run will take place on 11.6.2023 and the aim is to circle the Baldeneysee in Essen. The distance is just under 15 km. However, you can run the same distance at home (or anywhere in the world) and document this run with your running app. Afterwards you send a screenshot and a selfie of yourself to the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org.
NEW: This year it is possible for the first time to run in pairs as a relay! The relay handover will take place shortly before the weir after approx. 8 km. Please choose the ticket type "relay", and also don't forget to indicate the t-shirt sizes as well as the name of both runners.
Each participant will receive a high-quality yellow running shirt with Resi, the resilient spider (the namesake of the run) and the inscription "Resi Run 2023", which will be sent in advance. Ideal for the photos afterwards! After the run, all runners will receive a certificate as a souvenir (virtual runners will be sent one to download), and souvenir photos will be taken, which will be made available to you afterwards.
Important: The number of participants on site is limited for organizational reasons!
