It was amazing to be part of it! 🏃♂️🌞
We joined one of the most beautiful running events in Germany – the Tegernsee Run. This time, eight highly motivated runners from Maurer Rides took on the challenge. With sunny weather as our companion, we conquered 21.1 km around the picturesque lake, cheered on by enthusiastic spectators and surrounded by breathtaking scenery.
