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

I will be taking part in the SAP Community Global Running Day, an event kick started by Phil Cooley in Melbourne. While Phil had the initial idea, DJ Adams has added an option to meet in Manchester and join Phil’s initiative. You can find their respective blog posts here + some more that have shown up too:

In there, they explain all the stuff around the #GlobalRunningDay on 1st June 2022.

What can you do to join as part the SAP Community?

  • Join the team initiated by Phil via this link.
  • Optionally, join Phil in Melbourne or DJ in Manchester or me in Walldorf running together on that day. Below, I mimic Phil’s and DJ’s approach and describe when and where to meet if you happen to be near Walldorf on that day.

Meet-Up in Walldorf

You can join me on a 5.5k run through the forest, just behind SAP’s training centre (WDF05), if you want. Similar to Phil and DJ, the outline would be the following:

  • When: Wed, 1st June 2022, 8:00am, starting then at 8:10.
  • Where: behind WDF05, at the fountain near the “Dino Eggs” (see photo below), next to the tennis courts
  • Who: whoever likes to run with us
  • Pace: “We’ll go at the pace of the steadiest runner” [DJ]

The proposed route is mostly on graveled trails in the forest. We will hit the lake (Hochholzer See) around midpoint and then return back towards where we started. Find a few photos below. Maybe you can indicate via the comments section if you plan to join.


Running route for June 1st.


Meeting point: fountain near the Dino Eggs.


We will mostly run on this type of trail.


At halftime, we will hit the Hochholzer See.


On the way back from the lake, we will run along the line-up of planets.


This is the finish line, leaving the forest just behind WDF19.

      Thanks Thomas Zurek | SAP People  for your support with the #GlobalRunningDay and like 2 years ago when you shared your running location I am still taken about with the beauty of that route. Especially the Dino eggs - awesome! Hope plenty in the #SAPCommunity join you!

      Hey, I know this lady 🙂 Well done everyone! I knew I would've enjoyed running with you, if I wasn't running in Mannheim. When I started at SAP there used to be days for such a run regularly on campus, do you know if these might happen again? If not, I'm happy to join now that the campus is open again. 🙂
