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’.
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.
Security & Sustainability
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.
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.
Logistics & Material
Gerhard is the new support for the Tandem with Lukas in charge of logistics and material. More informations about Gerhard will follow soon!
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.
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.
SOLA Dorf Coordination
I am very enthusiastic about the idea of the relay race and the event as a whole. I think it’s a great idea to combine sport and fun, team spirit and ambition. For several years I have been providing and accompanying Mini-SOLA teams. Through these contacts I became part of the organizing team.
In my free time I like to be in nature, enjoy hiking in the Valais and am an enthusiastic cross-country skier in winter.
Sport is a big part of my life and also a great balance to my studies. In addition to running, I also like to try out the whole range of university sports. As I am very interested in social media (like probably many people my age), I like to contribute to SOLA Basel in this area.
Internship in Sport Event Management
Isabel Da Costa
I love to move in nature, be it in the forest or in the water, jogging or surfing. As an intern at SOLA Basel I will be used in many different ways. As a sports scientist, I am happy to move everyone.
