Lear Oberding team members take part in Munich’s B2Run for the fourth straight year
In Germany on July 16th 2015, Lear Oberding team members took part in Munich’s B2Run for the fourth straight year, nearly tripling the contributors from two years ago with 80 registered Lear runners.
The B2Run is a race held in 12 German cities on different days, with the largest component taking part in Munich with a total of 35,000 runners from almost 1500 participating companies, unions or institutions running about 6 km (3.7 miles) through Olympiapark to finish in the Olympic Stadium.
This year the non-profit “Deutsche Fernsehlotterie” (German television lottery), which has since 1954 raised funds for those who are vulnerable, received the proceeds from the race which will be donated for charitable purposes.
All the Lear participants completed the race, with top times for women being: Lisa Kohlstetter (32:48.6 min.); Merle Reifschläger (32:59.5); and Esther Wollaston (33:41.8). For men, Kristof Baltay finished first (25:24.8), followed by Johannes Wolf (26:45.4) and Christian Klein (26:52.6).
“Especially with a high temperature on the day, the runners really showed a perfect performance with all participants finishing,” said Ibrahim (Ibi) Hamayel (Lead Engineer). “We are equally proud of those for their great effort no matter the time it took. After the run, the Lear team united at our company meeting point directly next to the finish line and celebrated all our success together.” “This is a great event to strengthen the ‘One Lear’ philosophy,” added Kristof, “and more and more Lear employees are coming together for training and to take part at the next team event. I would like to thank everyone involved and especially those who helped organize our contribution as we continue ‘running together and winning together as One Lear’."
