Volcanic rock and deep blue sea: the training trip to Lanzarote

DSCN0715The sec­ond-cat­e­go­ry qual­i­fiers trav­elled to the most norther­ly of the sev­en large Canary Islands – to Lan­zarote – under the mot­to of „Land­scapes and Pas­sion“! From 7 to 10 June, the 32 par­tic­i­pants were able to dis­cov­er the many facets of the pop­u­lar hol­i­day island in the Atlantic Ocean. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Absolute­ly unique
In 1993, Lan­zarote was the first entire island to be declared a bios­phere reserve by UNESCO. The sparse beau­ty is due to the vol­canic ori­gins and the fact that the island is the dri­est of all the Canary Islands. Due to its spe­cial geo­log­i­cal and geo­log­i­cal con­di­tions, a very spe­cial method of grow­ing wine on lapil­li (vol­canic ash, which is also called Picón) has devel­oped. The group was able to enjoy the fruits of this tra­di­tion at a wine-tast­ing in La Geria.

ENERGETIX: Another strong group of runners join Joey Kelly at the starting line for a good cause in 2016!

The start­ing gun for the eager­ly await­ed half marathon in Mainz was fired on 22 May! And, this year again, the Bin­gen-based net­work mar­ket­ing com­pa­ny field­ed a remark­ably large group for the event: more than 70 ENERGETIX busi­ness part­ners along with staff and friends came togeth­er in bril­liant sun­shine and sum­mer tem­per­a­tures to run for a good cause.

Joey Kel­ly gave his all again!
It was great that he was there again: Joey Kel­ly! This like­able extreme sports per­son­al­i­ty joined the run once more with the aim of ful­fill­ing his promise of ‘accom­pa­ny­ing every­one across the fin­ish­ing line’ and spurring on his col­leagues in the ENERGETIX team to achieve their per­son­al bests.


Mainz_03When endurance sport meets char­i­ty
As in pre­vi­ous years, the ENERGETIX run­ning team decid­ed again in 2016 to run for a good cause – more specif­i­cal­ly: for the Hugo Tem­pel­man Foun­da­tion. The net­work mar­ket­ing com­pa­ny in Bin­gen donat­ed two euros for every kilo­me­tre run by a team mem­ber. The man­age­ment then gen­er­ous­ly round­ed the total up so that an amaz­ing 6,500 euros came togeth­er for med­ical and social aid projects in Elands­doorn / South Africa. The foun­da­tion ini­tia­tors, Hugo and Lies­je Tem­pel­man, who were vis­it­ing from South Africa, were very pleased with the effort as well as with the fact that ENERGETIX has been help­ing them so con­sis­tent­ly in their fight against HIV and sup­port­ing them in this way.


Andreas Räwel and Andreas Kasulke, both ENERGETIX busi­ness part­ners, demon­strat­ed par­tic­u­lar com­mit­ment by com­plet­ing the half marathon with fly­ing colours and then donat­ing anoth­er 1,000 euros to the good cause with the help of their team. Mainz_05
