For runners by runners
The ‘Verein SOLA Basel’ is the promotor responsible for this event. The following is the organisation team.
Chairman of the organising committee /
I am a multisport person who has taken his hobby into a profession. I work as a product manager with running COACH. Besides, I organise training weekends and training weeks, which give me a chance to actively share my passion for running. I have gathered my event-related experience as a member of the race organisation for ‘10 Meilen Laufen’.
Marketing / Communications
What I like best is running in the nature in the evenings, enjoying the mood of forests and open fields. I’m also keen on city runs and running events. At SOLA Basel I can bring my marketing knowledge and my communication skills to bear.
Vice-chairman / Staff
As a triathlete running sports belong to my favourite discipline – be it an intense running interval with my colleagues at LC Basel or a short lap in the evening in the nature. For my part in SOLA Basel both the experience I gathered during my competitive days and my professional background as a Human Resources Manager prove an enrichment.
Mini SOLA / SOLA Village
In the past I used to do track and field almost daily – both as an athlete and a coach. My first experience with events I gathered at the European Championships in Athletics in 2014 where I was in charge of volunteers. For three years I’ve been managing the Weltklasse Zürich project called ‘UBS Kids Cup Team’.
Security / Supporting programme
Running has played an important role in my life for over ten years. I am an active track runner and during winter months I also participate in road and cross-country runs. SOLA Basel offers me the opportunity to shape a running event according to my own ideas, where team spirit, the experience of nature and fun come together.
Running is for me an important balance to the profession and creates the basic condition for my mountain, ski and bike tours. When participating in many a mountain run and also at the SOLA in Zurich, I was able to witness what makes well-organized events. Of course, such leisure events should take place with the least possible environmental impact. I commit to realise that.
For me, running is the perfect balance to everyday work, to switch off in my head and to keep my body in shape. Both earlier as an athlete at the Old Boys Basel in medium distance running and now as a hobby runner, running training is part of a successful week for me.
Being outside and moving has always been an important part of my life. In the past, I worked on the Schützenmatte as an athlete with the Old Boys, today primarily in the Jura and in the Alps on mountain bikes and in between as a middle distance runner, for example on the Basler Stadtlauf.
Logistics / Infrastructure
I like to let my evenings fade away on the
LC Basel racetrack, in the forest or with the Birsfelden Fire Brigade. I would like to inspire many single runners with this fantastic team event across Basel-City and Basel-Country and share with them my running experience across our region.
Social media / Website / Infodesk
As a middle distance runner at LC Basel I am very close to running every day. My experience as a runner and my great interest in event organisation can be ideally combined with SOLA Basel. In doing so, I support the administrative office in all work such as the Internet presence.
Administration / Graphic Design / Communication
I love nature, mountains and sports. Especially the Basel Jura is close to my heart, where I have climbed some of the finest routes. I communicate, organize or design for SOLA Basel. I write agenda and minutes and coordinate between the organisation fields. This makes a lot of fun in such a sporty team.
Sponsoring / Partner / Media
I do not run but jogging! Otherwise, I like to do sports and water sports. At SOLA Basel, I take care of all the concerns of the “stakeholders”. To start a race on this scale is a great motivation. Event experience: 15 years OK Across Basel, Head of Gigathlon Basel 2005 and 2007.
