Mini SOLA & SOLA Village

Nadine Rietmann

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’.


Michael Granacher

Running has been part of my life for many years. As an orienteering runner and multi-sport athlete I am outdoors at all times of the year – in the mountains, on narrow paths or right through the forest. At SOLA Basel, I make sure that the course is beautiful and safe, so I can pass on my enthusiasm for running.



Ludwig Ruder

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.

Medical Care

Jennifer Eymann

A passionate dancer and sports scientist, she has been in charge of medical support at SOLA Basel since the 2021 edition. More info about Jennifer will follow.


Nikolaus Wohlgemuth

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.

Sponsoring, Partner & Media

Stefan Kausch

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.


Ameli Raström

The trail run athlete and manager in Medicinal Technique will take over the responsibilities for the course in tandem with Michi and Niki in 2022. More information about Ameli will follow.


Administration, Graphic Design & Communication

Iris Staudecker

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.


Lukas Netscher

The enthusiastic all-round sportsman and student is now in charge of logistics and ensures that everything is in the right place on the day of the event. More information about Lukas followed.
