Frequently Asked Questions

Organization

Icon FragezeichenWho is the “Waldlauf” – Forest Run?

Icon Ausrufezeichen

The „Waldlauf für den guten Zweck“ (Forest Run for a Good Cause) is a charity run organized by the students of the Friedensau Adventist University on a voluntary basis.

Icon FragezeichenWhat is the purpose of the „Waldlauf” – Forest Run?

Icon Ausrufezeichen

The study programs offered at FAU all have a social orientation. The students would like to do something good for the environment and support the local community with the „Waldlauf“ - Forest Run.

Icon FragezeichenWhat is the hygiene concept?

Icon Ausrufezeichen

The hygiene concept will be developed close to the day of the run, adapted to the epidemic situation and the applicable laws. Therefore, no prediction can be made now.

Icon FragezeichenHow can my project be supported?

Icon Ausrufezeichen

The decision about projects to be supported is made by the FAU student council. You are welcome to introduce yourself to us by mail or via the contact form on the website. We will consider you for the next „Waldlauf“ – Forest Run.

Participate

Icon FragezeichenHow can I participate in the run?

Icon Ausrufezeichen

Yes. We have been able to gain some companies as sponsors, which we will allocate to runners without a sponsor.

Icon FragezeichenWhen do I have to have registered by?

Icon Ausrufezeichen

Please register by April 17, 2022.

Icon FragezeichenHow do I find a sponsor?

Icon Ausrufezeichen

Anyone can be a sponsor. Your own company, grandma, best friend, class teacher, your own pocket money. You can sponsor yourself, for the psychological effect it makes sense to have another person sponsor you.

Donations

Icon FragezeichenDo the donations really reach the cause?

Icon Ausrufezeichen

100% of the donations are given to the projects. Since the run is organized on a voluntary basis and material costs are covered by other funds, we are able to pass on the entire donation amount.

Icon FragezeichenCan I just donate without running myself?

Icon Ausrufezeichen

Of course. There are always runners who do not have sponsors. Every contribution helps, feel free to contact us.

Icon FragezeichenWhat happens with the donations?

Icon Ausrufezeichen

After all donations are received, we will send them to the projects, where they will use them at their own discretion. For example, the children's home wants to build a pizza oven or use the donation for excursions, the women's shelter wants to build a jungle gym for the children.

Icon FragezeichenWhen do I have to have transferred the amount I have raised by?

Icon Ausrufezeichen

Please transfer within one week.

Icon FragezeichenWhere should I transfer my donation?

The run

Icon FragezeichenAre only children allowed to run the children's course?

Icon Ausrufezeichen

The children‘s route is basically open to everyone. Whether parents with strollers, seniors with walkers or physically handicapped persons – everything is possible. We only ask that you remain fair to your sponsors and carefully consider whether the children's route is necessary for you.

Icon FragezeichenWhy is there no “Dorffest” village festival this year? Wasn't there always otherwise?

Icon Ausrufezeichen

The village festival is not an integral part of the run. This year it could not take place on this date for various reasons.

Icon FragezeichenI am suddenly sick on the day of the run, what happens now?

Icon Ausrufezeichen

As a sponsor, your personal appearance is not required at the run. As a runner, you are not obligated to do anything, but we would still appreciate the planned donation.

Icon FragezeichenWill my speed be measured professionally?

Icon Ausrufezeichen

We can‘t promise it. Since we work purely on a voluntary basis, we rely on support in this regard. We will do our best to organize an appropriate technique.

Icon FragezeichenAre there beverage stations along the run?

Icon Ausrufezeichen

Water stations will be available along the course.

Icon FragezeichenHow long is the run?

Icon Ausrufezeichen

The running time is two hours. It is possible to stop sooner. Please remember: No one should go beyond their personal strength.
