Global Running Day with SAP Community In Melbourne – Wednesday 1st June 2022

For some time now I have wanted to organise a SAP Community running event – combining the great activities of catching up with SAP Community members and also going for a run. Over the last couple of years this has been difficult! BUT!!!!

With #GlobalRunningDay fast approaching I thought it an opportune time to GO FOR IT!


Global Running Day with SAP Community

With this in mind we will have our first inaugural SAP Community running event in Melbourne on the Global Running day – Wednesday 1st June 2022. I am so excited for this.

All SAP Community members are welcome and if you don’t want to run – you can walk or cycle!

The plan is to meet in the morning and run around the tan which is a very well known running track. As per the below diagram we will meet at the Pillars of Wisdom. The track is around 3.8km.


Map of the tan

A more detailed map is here.

Event Information:

Date: Wednesday 1st June 2022

Time: 7:30am (AEST – Melbourne Time)

Activity: Run/Walk/Cycle around the tan

After: Coffee & Networking at one of the very many cafes prior to heading off for the working day

I have also set up a Melbourne Virtual Team as part of the Global Running Day. I pledged to run 5km on this day and you can join the team here -> Sapcommunitymelbournerunners — Global Running Day


My Pledge for the #GlobalRunningDay event

I really cannot wait for this event and really looking forward to seeing SAP Community members on the 1st June. I would also like to blog it forward to my good friends in other parts of the world to join – DJ Adams in the UK and Stephanie De Camara Marley in the US. Would be awesome to have a #GlobalRunningDay relay baton throughout the world starting in Melbourne.

If you are in other parts of the world get involved!! There are multiple locations you can join and all of the running tracks are amazing!!

In Manchester, England –

In Galway – Ireland –

In Philadelphia – US –

In Walldorf – Germany –

In Manheim – Germany –

Post some comments and let others know that you will participate and have signed up to our virtual running team for the 1st June!

See you then.

On The Day

On the day itself we would welcome everyone adding a comment with a photo and running times using hashtag #GlobalRunningDay.

Not long now and I cannot wait to see everyone in action.

      Awesome! Looking at your map I'm walking down memory lane of the time when I was running every Saturday morning with my cousin in the Botanical Garden in Melbourne. Part of that routine was to then go to a nice café, have yummy breakfast and then go to the markets.

      I've also pledged, was for a moment torn between running in Walldorf or in Mannheim but will look forward to run with Lena Stodal and Svea Becker!!

      Glad, that you are going to join Lena and me in Mannheim. I hope we'll have more attendees, too! It will definitely be fun!
