The (S)pacemakers of the SFB 1199 took up the challenge to beat their first time’s margin of 4:00.33 hours stemming from 2017 to run the 42.195 km in a collaborative effort again. In the heat of Sunday, 22 April 2018, the team rose up to a never seen strength. Ana, Jule, Ute, and Till (who came in again as a rescue for Jana’s illness in the very last minute) finished the marathon in an unbelievable 3:54.59 hours! If you don’t believe it, watch Link.
Obviously, this didn’t go unnoticed by the organizers of the Stadtwerke Leipzig Marathon, who didn’t hesitate to take it to the highlights of the day: Link (watch out for 0.57 minutes).
The only question which remains is: what will happen next year … ?
