Because of the huge turnout* last year, the unofficial Essen Meeple Run is back for Essen SPIEL 2016. Yehaaa!

It's a 12km (7.5 mile) fun-run around Essen. Still in the shape of a friggin' meeple!



We'll run it nice and steady and there'll be no winners except board gaming! The pace will be around 6 min/km (9.5 min/mile) or 10 km/h (6.2 mph).

* We we're 3 runners in 2015. But as I ran alone in 2014, it was a huge increase in turnout!

I'm planning to try and make this year, but I'm not sure I'll be in sufficient shape to keep that pace for the whole distance. If there are regular intersection stops it may be fine.

Where on the meeple is the start/end? Perhaps an early exit point may be possible.

Last year the effective pace was 6:49min/km (or 11 min/mile), so we were clearly not rushing it.

Ehm, that would be in the "private parts" area of the figure

I can't guarantee that I'll keep up, or finish the whole run, but I would love to join...
