The running shirts of one of the largest teams of this run will also be handed out, as well as the start numbers. Runners and the Belvedere observation tower are shown on the self-designed shirt, as well as this year's sponsors Evonik (, VIVTA e.V.

"Pasta and rice with a dry weight of 26kg were processed by our team," said Patrick Bongartz, CEO of BioThrust. Omnivore, vegetarian, and vegan dishes were offered. Together with the AVT event team, a convivial evening was ensured, which increases motivation for the run. Christian Kneppeck, Production Manager at BioThrust and responsible for the "pasta organization": "I'm really proud of what our team has already achieved before the run! The bowls for the pasta are full to the brim, even though they are so big!”. The photo gallery gives a good insight into the event.
