Company run Saarbrücken

This summer semester, the University Sports Center would once again like to motivate all students and staff of the university to start together in a company run. This year we will start for the second time at the company run in Saarbrücken. The Saarbrücken company run will take place on Friday, June 16, 2023. The start will be at 6:00 pm. The registration deadline is Wednesday, May 24, 2023.

At the last company run, the university was able to provide the largest group with 927 participants. This year we want to pursue this goal again. And we need your help! Motivate your colleagues or fellow students and join them and our university team at the start. Everyone can join in! Walking groups are also welcome (unfortunately, no walking sticks are allowed for safety reasons).


All you need to know


Registration deadline is Wednesday, May 24, 2023

There are always 3 participants competing as one team, whereby each team can give itself its own name (if necessary the name of the institution or the chair), which will then be taken into account in the registration. When choosing a team name, please make sure that it contains the word "Uni". Women-only teams, men-only teams, and mixed teams may be entered. Individuals will be combined with other individual entries to form teams.

After the registration deadline, all important information regarding the race will be sent by e-mail to the e-mail addresses indicated in the registration list. Please be sure to include the e-mail addresses on the entry form. Unfortunately, late registrations are not possible.

Participation in the company run is free of charge for runners. The university pays the registration fee. One euro of the entry fee of all runners will be donated to charitable aid projects.

Fast runners

If enough people are interested, the university would like to put together a fast women's team, a fast men's team and a fast mixed team. Therefore, we ask all ambitious runners who would be willing to support the university in this endeavor to register as individuals and enter their approximate 5K time so that we can put together the fast teams based on their running times. Maybe we can make it to the podium with one or more teams.



The route is about 5 km. The exact route is not yet determined (due to the numerous construction sites).
Here you can find the approximate route.


Running shirts

The university provides all runners for the company run with a T-shirt with the 75th anniversary emblem, so that we can start uniformly as ONE big team. Feel free to use the T-shirts to represent OUR UdS at other events in the anniversary year.
