On September 15, the city of Mozart finally turned into an after-work running location again.
Numerous motivated marathoners gathered at Residenzplatz to end the working day with a bit of running. Among them were a few familiar faces from elements. True to the motto "Who run the world? elements!", twelve teams registered for the Salzburg Business Run – including our CEOs, Roland Dessovic, Patrick Edelmayr and Dietmar Rietsch.
Groundhog day: elements at the Salzburg Business Run
For the fourth time in a row, elements took part in the popular running competition – with an internal record number of participants. 12 teams, each consisting of three runners, showed up at the starting line and pursued a common goal: to end the day running together with their colleagues.
Salzburg Business Run 2021: So … how was it?
The Executive Board is unanimous in its answer to this question:
"The atmosphere was great, and we all crossed the finish line in optimal weather – what more could you ask for? We are happy that so many ambitious runners from elements were at the start, and we’re positive that we will be strongly represented again next year!"
A look at the results shows how well we really did:
- Jakob Zellinger started as part of team "elements_quick&dirty" – and "quick&dirty" also applies to his performance. He completed the course of the challenging Q-Trail in just 49 minutes and six seconds. He left 330 Q-Trail starters in the dust and took 18th place in the overall standings.
- Strong on their own, even stronger together – not one, but two teams were represented in the top ten team classification "Business Run Male".
- In the entrepreneurial teams, our three CEOs took 32nd place – a solid performance!
Picture-perfect running conditions: Silver linings all around!
For the fourth time, numerous amateur runners gathered at Residenzplatz in the heart of Salzburg's old town – or more precisely, around 4,500 participants. The first of ten starting shots for the Salzburg Business Run was fired at 18:05.
Even though there were numerous clouds in the sky and a few raindrops fell just before the start: The weather gods meant well with the athletes, and everyone made it to the finish line with dry feet.
