Due to the current Coronasituation, the Time2Run New Year's Eve run in Schwabmünchen could not take place in the usual form this year. For organiser Leo Klocke and his team, it wasn´t a reason to to cancel this years event. And so it was called Time2Run virtual this year! The runners chose whether to complete the 6km or 12km course. The chosen distance could be run by anyone between 28.12. - 31.12.2020 and upload their time with a photo afterwards. Time2Run virtual in diesem Jahr! Die Läuferinnen und Läufer wählten, ob sie die 6km oder 12km lange Strecke absolvieren. Die gewählte Distanz konnte jeder zwischen dem 28.12. – 31.12.2020 an beliebiger Stelle laufen und seine Zeit mit Beweisfoto anschließend hochladen.
The concept was very good. More than 600 runners registered for the Time2Run New Year's Eve Run 2020. More than 5,000 € were raised, which, as every year, are donated to the good cause. This year, the amount goes to the Augsburg cultural scene, which suffers particularly due to the corona situation.
As the winner in 2018 and a 2nd place in 2019, I took this opporunity for a tempo run in my final preparation for Kenya on March 5. After passing the final exam, I was able to train without pressure for the last four weeks and was in quite good shape on 31.12. I was registered over 6km and 12km to test my current shape. With sunny four degrees and a slight headwind, I was able to win over 12km and a 3rd place over 6km with a time of 21:36´ and 44:11´. After only a few weeks of good training and no optimal race day, I am quite satisfied with the times. Now I continue to collect more miles and see if my current shape can be used for another competition. Nevertheless, I hope that the upcoming Time2Run New Year's Eve run will take place again as usual with and against other runners.
