For some time now I have wanted to organise a SAP Community running event - combining the great activities of catching up with SAP Community members and also going for a run. Over the last couple of years this has been difficult! BUT!!!!

With #GlobalRunningDay fast approaching I thought it an opportune time to GO FOR IT!

Global Running Day with SAP Community

With this in mind we will have our first inaugural SAP Community running event in Melbourne on the Global Running day - Wednesday 1st June 2022. I am so excited for this.

All SAP Community members are welcome and if you don't want to run - you can walk or cycle!

The plan is to meet in the morning and run around the tan which is a very well known running track. As per the below diagram we will meet at the Pillars of Wisdom. The track is around 3.8km.

A more detailed map is here.

Event Information:

Date: Wednesday 1st June 2022

Time: 7:30am (AEST - Melbourne Time)

Activity: Run/Walk/Cycle around the tan

After: Coffee & Networking at one of the very many cafes prior to heading off for the working day

I have also set up a Melbourne Virtual Team as part of the Global Running Day. I pledged to run 5km on this day and you can join the team here -> Sapcommunitymelbournerunners — Global Running Day

My Pledge for the #GlobalRunningDay event

I really cannot wait for this event and really looking forward to seeing SAP Community members on the 1st June. I would also like to blog it forward to my good friends in other parts of the world to join - in the UK and stephaniedecamara.marley in the US. Would be awesome to have a #GlobalRunningDay relay baton throughout the world starting in Melbourne.

If you are in other parts of the world get involved!! There are multiple locations you can join and all of the running tracks are amazing!!

In Manchester, England -

In Galway - Ireland -

In Philadelphia - US -

In Walldorf - Germany -

In Manheim - Germany -

Post some comments and let others know that you will participate and have signed up to our virtual running team for the 1st June!

See you then.

On The Day

On the day itself we would welcome everyone adding a comment with a photo and running times using hashtag #GlobalRunningDay.

Not long now and I cannot wait to see everyone in action.
