17.08.2018 PLATH Career

5,000 runners in 1,000 Teams – with the PLATH Group in the thick of it and far in front!

Team „Kamikatzen“

Unbelievably athletic! The annual Hamburg MOPO team relay race started at 5.30 pm. on Wednesday 15 August 2018. The PLATH Group took part this year with six teams of five runners.
This time too, each runner completed a five-kilometre route through the Stadtpark, the green lung of Hamburg. In a nutshell: one team – five runners – five kilometres – running around one big picnic event – and all for a good cause!

For each team, the PSD Bank Nord donated ten euros to the Hamburg Stadtpark Association (Stadtpark Verein Hamburg e.V.) towards realising the design of an educational tree trail.

After the PLATH Group runners had reached their goal, with plenty of cheering on from their colleagues, they were given a reception by team colleagues and PLATH Group fans with a cool drink. For this purpose PLATH had hired a tent including catering and a female barbecue champion.
To the joy of everyone involved, each team received a well-filled picnic basket from the organisers. The atmosphere among the runners was great and, unlike last year, the weather conditions this year were extremely agreeable: 23 degrees C and slightly overcast – perfect conditions for running.

The ranking and naming of the teams was also eminently respectable this year! The women’s “Kamikatzen” (Kamikats!) team came in ninth place out of 46 women’s’ teams and the men’s “Gestiefelter Muskelkater“ (Puss in boots with aching muscles!) came in 67th place out of 274 men’s teams.
