On 6 July we participated with the largest MathMods running group (37 runners) ever since the programme started. The KKH-Alster-Run 2014 has been organized by a German health insurance company. The entry fee (6 euro for each runner) went to Germany's wellknown charity programme entitled "Ein Herz für Kinder". The running distance was 7.4 km, around the Outer Alster which was quite a lot farer than the previous years (4.5 km through the Hafencity) It was amazing that so many students participated, a few of them even during the Ramadan, on that hot summer day (about 28 degrees)!

The programme was very family-friendly (different distances for different target groups) and motivating, especially the guided warming-up exercises for our long distance runners were great fun for everybody (sportsmen and fans :-)). We think that the fotos speak well for themselves. As special guests we welcomed our visiting professor Sergio Gonzalez as well as Professor Gasser's daughters who both were very successful in the run for beginners (2.4 kilometers) .

In order to pass the time while the runners were competing the spectators enjoyed the wonderful Alster panorama as well as the performances of typical (German) sports club culture (dance and cheerleader performance of young girls and trampoline acrobatic). Additionally beverages were for free as well as a shorts-shirt for all runners.

All our sportsmen were successful. Congratulations! Here comes the ranking of the best runners:
1. Professor Gasser (39 minutes) 2. Miriam (43 minutes) 3. Adriano (Professor Gasser's nephew) (43 minutes), 4. Mohamed (45 minutes) 5. Alexandr (46 minutes).

At the end there was a presentation ceremony and surprisingly Professor Gasser was awarded a cheque about 200 euros for the University of Hamburg for our team being the third largest of the event!

Congratulations to the all runners and supporters!
