A sporting project: IREKS trainees organised the “Altstadt-Firmenlauf 2017ˮ

Preparations had been taking place at full speed for many months. Now the time had come: On the Sunday of the Kulmbach Old Town Festival, 2nd July 2017, this year's “Altstadt-Firmenlaufˮ – the Old Town Company Run – was held. This is a relay race for companies and organisations from the region which was organised by the trainees from IREKS GmbH this year.

A total of 120 runners in 24 teams from different companies, schools and charitable organisations appeared at the start and gave their best on a course of approx. 1 km through the Kulmbach town centre. The ten fastest teams from the previous round then entered the final – and that could not have been more exciting: On the home straight, the teams “Binatural Foodsˮ and the Kulmbach Police showed a really fast finish. Ultimately, the Kulmbach start-up company, Binatural Foods, just pipped the Police at the post, putting them into second place. A team from the fitness centre CrossFit Kulmbach came in third.

Ten motivated employees from IREKS GmbH also represented our company at the starting line. Although the speed was not enough to win in the end, the ladies team "IREKS Sahneschnittchen" succeeded in causing a surprise. With their white-pink running shirts and a multi-coloured whisk as a baton, they were able to win over the spectators and, as a result, were given first prize in the category “The most original team outfitˮ.

Managing Partner Hans Albert Ruckdeschel, who opened the sporting competition together with his wife Margit Ruckdeschel and followed the event from beginning to end, recognized the commitment of the IREKS trainees and emphasized the great importance of such a joint project for both the personal development of each individual and also for the team spirit.

Many months before the event, a core team comprising of six trainees had already begun preparations and taken care of all the important points of organisation from the programme, via the registration of the teams, to the comprehensive marketing measures. During the event, the core team was also given support by around 50 other trainees from IREKS GmbH to make sure everything went smoothly.

Next year, this sporting project will be continued by a different company from Kulmbach. For this year's organisation team made up of our trainees, one thing is already clear, however: The IREKS team spirit is not ending with the project – they will be at the start with their own team of runners in 2018 and will represent our company as a strong community in this way!

Incidentally, more impressions of this project can be found on the Facebook page „Altstadt-Firmenlauf 2017 by IREKS“.
