ITA Runners - successful title defence at Campus Melaten
The running season of the ITA Runners started in 2018 with the 2nd RWTH Campus Run. Seventeen ambitious runners started for the Institut für Textiltechnik (ITA) on April 20. The runs were 4.6 km (FunRun) and 9 km (FitnessRun). The weather was with summer temperatures of 25 °C a perfect basis for a great running event.ITA
As last year, title defender Martin Pelzer was the fastest ITA Runner on the 9 km and was able to maintain third place overall (30:55 min). The runners Max Schwab (8th place; 33:13 min), Klaus Vonberg (9th place; 33:46 min) and Daniel Wolters (10th place; 34:00 min) completed the top 10 of the nearly 600 starters, so that the victory of the men's team classification was successfully defended. The fastest runner was Melina Sachtleben on position 75 out of 152 of the ladies (52:09 min).
On the FunRun course seven runners of the ITA Runners started. The fastest ITA Runners were Robert Brüll (59th; 22:20 min) and Felix Merkord (60th; 22:21 min), who crossed the finish line of almost 300 runners.
The next running event for the ITA Runners is the traditional Lousberglauf on 4 July 2018 over the 5.555 km on and around the Lousberg.
