It is well known that the fascination of running has steadily increased in recent years.But the Paderborn Easter Run has been around for 72 years. It is the oldest street race in Germany, organized by the SC Grün-Weiß Paderborn, enjoys even after so many decades of growing popularity and belongs to many already traditional Easter.There are even runners and helpers who shorten their holiday for this sport event.
"It's the unique mix of top and popular sports that draws runners to Paderborn on the Easter weekend each year," says Mathias Vetter, club manager of SC Grün-Weiß.Here professionals meet amateurs, here children, families, clubs and companies run side by side.Whether at the end-track sprint half marathon, at the E.ON 10km run, at the 5km Fit and Fun run, at the 5km MBörso-Computer Nordic Walking or at the two Bambini runs of Sparkasse Paderborn-Detmold.The motivation of the runners at the start is as different as they are: some run for best times, for personal records, for victory.Others are for fun, health, tradition or charity.
