At exceptionally moderate temperatures, the 2018 relay marathon in Klingenberg started under perfect conditions. Almost all participants completed their elements of the course and reached the finishing line. The ?WIKA Running Team? came out at diaphragm seal and gained first place.
102 guest teams and 32 WIKA teams took part in the WIKA relay marathon, well-known and very popular indeed right across the region. The subsidiaries fielded teams and individual runners from France, the UK, India, the center East, Poland, Russia and Spain. KSR and tecsis were also represented. The fastest WIKA male runner was Markus Heidl with a time of 20:28.4, and his fastest female WIKA counterpart, Nahed Nafez, recorded a time of 25:42.2.
At about 3 p.m., music from the band ?Querbeet? got the general public into festive mood, accompanied by an open-air concert that evening from ?(d)ra(h)tlos? and ?B.L.O.N.D.? These bands delivered a rich sound and rounded off the festivities. The event was ably assisted once again this year by the local associations from Trennfurt, the voluntary fire brigades from Trennfurt and W�rth, the Bavarian Red Cross, THW Obernburg, in addition to by massage teams Kroth, Dworschak and Brunner and, never to be forgotten, by many volunteers from WIKA.
Everyone is already looking towards the 2019 WIKA relay marathon.
