Salzburg, 10. Juli 2018. In a bid to run ‘as far as their feet will carry them’, Commend and SKIDATA employees have been engaging in a competition to ‘run up’ as many long-distance kilometres as possible. The competitive aspect aside, the main idea behind the initiative is to earn donations for every kilometre in support of the Salzburg Children’s Cancer Fund.
It’s been a fast-paced, inspiring race so far: the teams have already clocked up a combined total of 3,000 km and are currently neck-and-neck. In view of the upcoming World Football Championship finals, the runners have now committed to an extra challenge: over the next two weeks both teams will attempt to ‘run the distance’ from Salzburg to Moscow’s Luzhniki Olympic Stadium. SKIDATA, of course, is the supplier of the smart access systems that ensure smooth access for football fans at the stadiums.
Judging by the number of kilometres achieved so far, it’s more than likely that the highly motivated runners from both companies will ‘reach Moscow’ in time for the final Football World Championship match.
