The HFU Black Forest Run (formarly the WING half-marathon and 10 K run) the annual running and walking event which takes place along the River Breg - this year for the 15th time - is far more than just sport. The event is open to students, alumni, university staff and representatives from companies - basically anyone who enjoys running, whether involved in the University or not, is invited to take part.
The half-marathon and 10K run takes place on Saturday 26 October 2019 at 10.30am outside the auditorium in the parking lot of Furtwangen University, Furtwangen Campus. The level route follows the River Breg to the turning point of the 10K run at Schönenbach, and the turning point of the half-marathon at Vöhrenbach.
With the HFU Black Forest Run the most important thing is not the competition or breaking records, but rather the community experience and above all, the fun of running. That's why we've been offering a Mixed Team event since 2016, too: mixed teams with any number of participants can be registered. The team with the greatest number of kilometers run, wins. In 2018 the Robert-Gerwig-Schule team won the team event with 453 kilometers run, ahead of the RENA team (191km) and the WING team from the Faculty of Business Administration and Engineering (175km).
The Villingen artist Paul Revellio has again created an original lithography for the 2019 event in Furtwangen, which not only the competitors can win. A raffle with various prizes means everyone can be a winner.
As always the band "La vida loca" will play at the traditional pre-event Pasta Party powered by Babtec which takes place on Friday, 25 October at 6.00pm in the HFU cafeteria. The Pasta Party is free for competitors, but guests are welcome.
