Endress+Hauser Wetzer Company and Family Run 2019
The Company and Family Run in Nesselwang in the Allgäu celebrates its 10th anniversary
On Friday 5 July 2019, Endress+Hauser in Nesselwang celebrates its 10th anniversary as the main sponsor of the Allgäu Endress+Hauser Wetzer Company and Family Run. The event is unique in the Allgäu region. Endress+Hauser has been involved in the event for 10 years and provides support for clubs in Nesselwang. Numerous employees, lots of Nesselwang locals and many residents from the surrounding area will join in the action as runners, visitors and spectators along the route.
Endress+Hauser Wetzer and Skiklub Nesselwang have collaborated successfully for many years and continue to do so at this event: Endress+Hauser Wetzer is the main sponsor and Skiklub Nesselwang is the organiser. Other sponsors are the Alpspitzbahn, ABC Nesselwang, Marketing GmbH Nesselwang, Zötler Bier, Allgäu-Timing, Bergsport Martin, Metalltechnik Haas, Schlichtling, tda Digitaldruck, RF MAX, Xenofit and the AOK.
For Endress+Hauser Wetzer the focus is on health, and the company also wants to help local clubs promote this, for example through the catering at Skiklub Nesselwang. The Allgäu Company and Family Run is a registered name, and so its uniqueness in the Allgäu is therefore guaranteed. There is no other event like it in the region.
The aim is to create an experience for families – that is what is important, says Frank Walle, co-founder of the event and former HR director. He launched the race event 10 years ago together with Kurt Dittrich, former chairman of the works council, and Robert Frei, who worked at Marketing GmbH Nesselwang at the time and is now at Tourismus Ostallgäu.
The different races
The event started in the late afternoon with the Allgäu-Timing Bambini Run, a 300 m race that gives the very youngest competitors a chance to feel like winners. This is followed by the 1.4 km Schlichtling Kids Run, which lets all budding athletes demonstrate their running skills. The starting signal is then fired for the Endress+Hauser Wetzer Company Run in which runners can either complete a 5.4 km or a 10.8 km course. The 5.4 km AOK Nordic Walking Race takes place at the same time.
Participants and winners
At the awards ceremony that followed, fantastic prizes were presented to all the winners and they were able to take home many beautiful memories.
The race had a total of 247 participants, including 25 Endress+Hauser employees and some of our employees' children.
We would like to thank all participants and congratulate the winners:
