First XRG Marathon Relay finishes within 4 hours
Proud relay members (from l.): Detlev Baumeister, Friedrich Gottelt, Dejanira Juarez and Stefan Wischhusen
Another success for XRG: The first mixed relay team takes part in Hamburg's 28th Haspa Marathon. On an extraordinary sunny April day (we are in Hamburg) the four members of relay team Detlev Baumeister, Friedrich Gottelt, Dejanira Juarez and Stefan Wischhusen finish in 3 hours and 56 min. Dejanira was the first on track and completed her 16.3 km in a remarkable time of 1:17. Next was Stefan Wischhusen who was highly motivated after this quick start of his teammate. He could keep up the pace over 11.4 km and reached the next transfer zone after 53 min where Detlev was waiting for him. The third runner even completed by achieving his personal best performance after another 5 km. Unfortunately, the last transfer did not work too good due to a missing team member but after another 20 min Friedrich was on the road and finished his 9.5 km in 53 min. Nevertheless, all participants were very happy about the first Marathon relay and will start again in 2014.
