500 runners in Dresden

German racing takes early socially distanced steps

by Stefanie Stein

Dresden has taken the first steps back into an almost forgotten sporting normality. Around 500 runners took part in the quickly-organised RESTART RUN on 21 June, one of the first official competitions in Germany.

“We wanted to set a tone, create an eye-opening effect and we managed to do that,” said André Egger from Laufszene Events GmbH.

There was a comprehensive event and hygiene plan in place for the start at the Schillergarten, spaced out in the large parking lot. Runners set off in six starting waves. Runners wore mouth-nose protection in the starting area. Times recorded were the individual net times, i.e. from the start to the finish line in the Heinz Steyer Stadium. This meant that it was possible to win even if setting off in the last wave of starts.
