City Run Leonberg 2013: Tobias Sauter supports young runners

Perfect running conditions and a cheering crowd drove the participants of the City Run in Leonberg on June 29 to new heights: two new track records in the women’s competition and a record number of 1,006 athletes finished the race at its fifth edition. The 5 km run, which is sponsored by LEWA, as well as the 10 km run were equally popular.

However, LEWA was also active on track: The company team, with 29 runners, was as big as never before and put together the second biggest crew. Unfortunately, Tobias Sauter, a marathon specialist who is sponsored by LEWA, could not enter the competition due to the consequences of a tick bite. Nevertheless, last year’s winner supported the event as pacemaker in the kids’ race and as host of the main competitions. Despite the setback, he doesn’t lose sight of his aims in sport: “As an inhabitant of Leonberg it’s particularly unfortunate that I couldn’t take part this year, but I need to stay in top condition to reach my next goal, the European championships next year.”
