Geocacher like running..
Geocacher like running..
At the MEGA Switzerland – Meeting Friends 2017 more than 100 geocachers have had fun and participated in the GEORun. Even the present Lackeys from the HQ were at the start. A report by Schmelli and the ranking of 2018 can be seen here. It would be great to have as many geocachers back at the start
On the same day when our MEGA Switzerland – Meeting Friends 2018 will take place, there will also be the traditional city run, called Frauenfelder Stadtlauf. Young and old people run in various categories a distance of 600 m to 7200 m through the down town of Frauenfeld.
Since we know a lot of geocacher who also do running sports besides of geocaching, we had the idea of a geocacher’s own category.
We encourage all geocacher to take part at GEORun, no matter if you are young or old, big or thin, man or woman.
The GEORun has a distance of 1800 m.
Officially there is no time limit – or so we say: if you manage the course in 25 minutes, you do not hinder the following races.
Of course! If you have a great idea surprise us!
The GEORun starts together with the category jogger at 17:15.
Thanks to intensive negotiations and sponsoring we can exclusively offer a participation for 12.- entry fee (instead of the regular entry fee of 18.-).
Each participant, who has completed the round, receives an exclusive and special trackable award! In addition, each participant receives a natural price.
To participate the GEORun please register on our website www.meetingfriends.ch. Only then you will get an exclusive trackable award. Go to our shop and select GEORun . You have to register by 19.08.2018! Later registrations or post-registrations will hardly be possible!.
At a time we will decide to order a certain amount of awards. That means: First come, first serve.
On Saturday from 14:00 clock you can pick up your starting number at the booth in the courtyard of the place called “Mätteli”. Coordinates N 47° 33.510 E 008° 53.890
To the organizer we only report geocaching nickname and country.
Children and teenager can participate in their own category from 16:00. They will get the regular city run medal, a t-shirt and a natural price as an award.
All start-fees for children and teenager are sponsored by MIGROS.
The registration must be made directly on the website of Frauenfelder Stadtlauf and not at Meeting Friends!
Link to login (will open soon)
There will be changing rooms and showers on the premises.
Oh yeah … there will be a Wherigo called GEORun . Take your WIG device with you during running … so you saved yourself from completing the course a second time …
All further information can be found on the Stadtlauf website.
We are curious about how this idea can inspire the geocacher community. Can we motivate 200 geocacher for this run? Please bear in mind, it’s all about fun and not a world record! It is likely, that also members of the band “Dosenfischer” are on the starting line as well as members of the OC.
So be there on 25 August 2018 at 17:15, when the GEORun will start!
