The conference Meet Magento DE in Leipzig and the MageRun taking place there are inseperable. The sportive tradition continues this year. Our team will organise it like we did last year.
Meeting Point: MotelOne Nikolaikirche and Kongresshalle
Time: 18th June, 7:00 a.m.
Distance: 9 km (shortcuts possible)
Who can take part in the run?
Anyone who would like to get some fresh air and catch a glimpse of the green scenery on this Monday morning is welcome to join us. The planned route is about 9 km (5.5 miles) long and can be shortened to whatever you like.
Rosental is a mixture of a park and a forest with lots of different trails that allow you to adjust the distance without the need to do a cross-country run. If you realise during the first half that you’d rather opt for a shorter distance, you can take a shortcut and meet the other runners later on their way back at Herrenallee.
When does the MageRun take place?
We meet on at 7 o’clock on Monday, 18th June. The conference registration is open from 9 to 10 a.m., the opening session starts at 10 a.m. There is plenty of time for a nice jog and freshening up afterwards.
How long does the run take?
The distance of 9 km can be run in about an hour. However, we calculate to take 1.5 hours: First, we stop to pick up other runners; then there’s a possible detour to the Wackelturm, a look-out with a beautiful view over Leipzig – definitely worth a short break and some steps.
Where does the route run to?
We start in Leipzig’s city center in front of the Motel One Nikolaikirche. Then we run to Kongresshalle (congress hall), the event location, to pick up people who stay further north. The Kongresshalle is next to a peaceful scenery of meadows and forest: the Rosental with Leipzig’s floodplain forest.
In this green lung of the city we first run along the southern edge towards the western end. Then we run along the northern parts back east. En route we pass the Wackelturm.
Outlook on Leipzig
If you have sufficient power in your legs and want to have a better view of the city you are in, climb the stairs to the Wackelturm which is 20 m high.
Afterwards, we continue along the local zoo through the Rosental, passing the little Rosental pond, until we reach the street named Emil-Fuchs-Straße. Via the Rosentalgasse we run back to the city center.
Where can I get more information?
In the upcoming weeks until the run, we will post more information on Twitter using the hashtag #magerun. We will also remind you to bring your running shoes and clothing with you.
Not everyone is on Twitter. So this year we offer a WhatsApp group for any information at short notice. Enter your name and mobile number here and you won’t miss any information about the run!
Sign up for the WhatsApp group
Your mobile number will not be passed on and it will only be used for communication regarding the run in a Whatsapp group chat. Our organisers will share their location in this group, so anyone who doesn’t make it on time to the meeting point can join us later.
The Whatsapp group will be created on Saturday, 16th June, and will be deleted on Monday after the run.
