The snow has melted, the birds are back from the south and everything is green and blooming. The outdoor sports season has begun for everyone. "It's too cold, it gets dark too fast, I'm too tired..." These are excuses that just will not work once spring arrives, even for the laziest couch potatoes. And what is more fun than doing something outdoors with like-minded people?

Get active through competition!

Your health protection team has come up with a wide range of activities, competitions and other offers once again this year. To start off, we welcomed the spring with our Marktl Sports Challenge. After about a month and a half, 34 participants had burned almost 450,000 calories – what a great achievement! EVERYONE can sign up and join forces with their work colleagues because the challenge will continue until November 15, 2018. The goal – 15,000 calories – can still be achieved by everyone, so let the great prizes be your inspiration!


Running together for charity

Once again this year, we have selected three running events that benefit nonprofit or charitable causes, and anyone who loves to run can participate. We are not limiting ourselves to athletes – everyone who would like to participate should have the opportunity.

Our running event started brilliantly on May 6th in Vienna in front of City Hall. In the best conditions and bright sunshine, 40 group employees participated as part of the "Aluminum Valley Runners" team. Everyone reached the finish line in the Wings for Life World Run, once they were overtaken by the "catcher car".

All the participants should be proud of their achievements. All together, we covered 635 kilometers. Employees who have not done any running in a long time as well as our recreational athletes all ran for everyone who cannot because that's what this run is all about. The entry fee goes directly to spinal cord research. We hope that our donation will make a great contribution to increased research, but above all, we are happy for the opportunity to motivate our employees to include a healthy amount of sports activities in their free time. Keep up the good work!

We ended our sports activities kick-off at the Schweizerhaus in Vienna's Prater with food and drink before returning home to the Traisental region. We made the trip together with our neighbors, Georg Fischer Fittings GmbH and the Wachter company, and were accompanied by two coordinators. Thanks to everyone who helped with the organization!

We would like to sincerely thank management for covering the costs for entry fees, company running shirts, the bus and the visit to the Schweizerhaus! It was a great event! And the next one is just around the corner!

The running goes on and on

For those who would like to participate in the next running events, put the Wilhelmsburger City Run on July 28 and the Vision Run on September 6 in your calendars. We will send out the options for registration in a timely manner!

We look forward to multiple registrations! Your Marktl health protection team
