A successful Campus Relay 2013

CBS Sport Campus Relay 2013 was a huge success

September 17th arrived and with it the anticipation of the CBS Sport Campus Relay 2013.

Since the Campus Relay was last held in 2012 the event area was moved from Solbjerg Plads to Kilen.

As we were lucky with the weather CBS Sport decided to take advantage and place all stands outside on the lawn. And from the early afternoon the ground around Kilen started buzzing with runners picking up their numbers and t-shirts, and volunteers getting the last details ready before the relay would start.

A total of 104 teams had signed up and at 15:45 the Panther and a friend of his took the stage to get everyone ready with a sublime warm-up routine.

A couple of minutes before 16:00 the last details and good wishes were given and everyone were anxious to get started and then the starting gun sounded!

The winners

The relay was underway and the fastest team soon stood out. Team Full Performance kept all others behind them and completed in the impressive time of 00:32:26 and won both the student category and overall first place – almost four minutes before the second team reached the finish line – great job! Their prize for winning was sponsored by Action Center Amager!

Team Finance On-the-runs took first place in the Employees and Alumni category and won a prize sponsored by Copenhagen Cable Park, and finally Team Female Financiers took first place among the Female teams and won a prize sponsored by Kurbadet Frederiksberg Svømmehal.

FCEMS International Originalsurthermore a bunch of sprint prizes were handed out and Team CEMS International Originals (see picture on the right) won the prize for best costumes, sponsored by Academic Books.

The sprint prizes were sponsored by FCK, Frozberry, Spisestuerne and Nexus.

The volunteers

Of fun facts, we can mention that about 25 volunteers helped out on the day and six tents and 60 meters of fence was put up!

CBS Sport would like to thank everyone who took part in the race, everyone who volunteered, the sponsors and everyone else involved in the Campus Relay.

We hope to see all of you again next year for another great race.
