Three teams of DZD scientists successfully ran the 9th REWE Team Challenge 2017

We made it! After these five kilometers, there was no stopping. Arms were pulled up, selfies were taken or simply high fives were given. On June 1st, 2017 three teams of the DZD partner Paul Langerhans Institute Dresden (PLID) successfully participated in the 9th REWE Team Challenge.

The 12 PLID Runners went along with another 20,000 runners on the 5km long route from Dresden Altmarkt to the DDV Stadium. At ideal temperatures the PLID teams were able to run great positions in the overall classification. In the mixed teams, the team "PLID 2" finished with a total time of 1:46:46 on a very good 823 place of a total of 2415 competing teams. Team "PLID 3" finished on place 920 (1:48:12) and team "PLID 1" on place 1019 (1:49:15). In the individual competition, Anne Eugster was able to run the fastest time of 00:23:59 and reached place 414 from 7542 within the female ranking. On the male side, Frank Möller finished with 0:21:37 and was ranked on position 1480 of 11,330.

Congratulations to this great success and many thanks to the German Center for Diabetes Research e.V. (DZD) and the Helmholtz Centre Munich (HMGU) for their financial and material support and of course also to all who have participated!
