№ 014/2020 from Jan 24, 2020

As part of the university’s summer fest on June 23, there will be a fun run around Freie Universität Berlin’s Dahlem campus. Runners and walkers from all over are welcome to join, even if they are not university students or employees. Campus Run participants are divided into categories based on their age group and speed. Children under the age of 10 (born in 2009 or earlier) can do a 1000-meter run. Adults and adolescents can sign up for different distances: 5 kilometers, 7.5 kilometers, or 10 kilometers. Minors need written permission from their parent or guardian if they want to participate. Online registration is already open: www.campusrun-berlin.de, and the first 1000 participants to register will receive a free athletic t-shirt. The university’s summer fest will take place from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. and will be held on the square in front of the “Holzlaube” building, Fabeckstrasse 23/25, Freie Universität Berlin, in Berlin-Dahlem. The start and finish line are also located there as well as the awards ceremony following the races. The children’s race starts at 4:30 p.m. The other races start at 5:15 p.m.

There are prizes for the top three male and female runners in the 10 km race. The fastest male and female students will receive the Berlin university championship titles. A special cash prize of 500.00 euros will go to the team with the most participants. The prize is sponsored by the Ernst Reuter Society of Friends, Supporters, and Alumni of Freie Universität Berlin, which is also sponsoring prizes for second place (300.00 euros) and third place (200.00 euros).
