So, I can't be the only runner going to Essen.

Last year I ran a meeple-shaped route and it was a decent running route of 12 km around Essen.

And shaped like a friggin' meeple:



Okay, not really meeple-shaped, but almost. Ish.

It takes place on Saturday, Oct. 10 at 9:30 am.

Join on Facebook and read all the details here:

That is a bloody marvellous idea. I have to convert that pace to min/mile (I'm a Englishman!) to see if I can keep up, but definitely in for the idea.

That would be 9.5 min/mile - slow and steady

NICE !!

But, I'll use my energy to survive my days at the fair, working my way through to all the nice games.

Have fun !
Take a lot of pictures and share them.

I'm keen - sounds like a great idea. Will be at the fair for 4 days so this should be a good break from trawling the halls.

This is an awesome idea and I'd really like to join. Unfortunatly I'm still recovering from a cruciate ligament rupture surgery so I fear that my doc wouldn't support the idea of taking a 12km run yet.

Jonas - I might well be up for that as I'd rather be out early than getting to Fair late.

Such an awesome idea! I would definitely run if I was anywhere near Essen. Doing the Disneyland half marathon here in Los Angeles in a few weeks. Have a great time! Jealous. meeple

If it was near Halloween time, then you could all dress up like nuns. laugh

Great idea! I won't join you though, as I'm participating in the Essen Marathon on Sunday.

Oh yes! Must set that up soon... but I'm really out of practice, so currently 12k sounds not so plausible - it will be by October though

Awesome! This year I'll be in Essen Saturday. Looking forward to the Run laugh. (First time I'll actually see the city and not only the fair). Thanks for doing this!
