Sports at Memmert

Is a Memmert heating oven going to be even better, more reliable, more precise, if suddenly all our employees train for a triathlon? We don’t know the answer to that question. Since we know, however, that a good work-life balance is essential for motivation, a good performance and positive thinking, we support all sporting activities of our employees and other people in the...

When 5,000 athletes and 220,000 spectators storm the placid town of Roth with its 24,000 inhabitants in the metropolitan region of Nuremberg, everyone knows: It's time for Europe's biggest triathlon, the world-wide most popular CHALLENGE ROTH.

 

Challenge: The name speaks for itself; it's the sport event of the year in the region that goes crazy for triathlons. 3.8 km...

Memmert would not miss the opportunity to gather an entire team for the 30th anniversary of the popular district run in Roth for the first time. Runners for 28 legs with different lengths (3.3 km – 10 km) had to be found, who would divide among them the entire distance of 160 km. Of course, we quickly found motivated employees here at Memmert.

1.5 kilometres swimming, 42 kilometres cycling and 10 kilometres running. This year, the established triathlon in the picturesque Franconian landscape took place under the name of Memmert Rothsee Triathlon for the first time. Team Memmert's excitement before the start was just as high as the level of enthusiasm after crossing the finish line.

The triathlon season has started, one event follows the other, and last Sunday, June 9, our Team Memmert took part in the Challenge Kraichgau. At this event in the north west of Baden-Wuerttemberg, the athletes participated as individual starters and in a relay team over the half distance, cheered on by a total of 45,000 enthusiastic spectators.

The Team Memmert athletes carry our colours into the world. Last weekend, at the Austria Ironman 70.3 St. Pölten, 5 of our athletes started in a Memmert jersey.

Lovely spring weather as the days before would have been the icing on the cake of the half marathon (21.1 km) HiRo-Run for Team Memmert last Sunday, April 4, 2013. However, our contestants defied the rain and cold temperatures – they crossed the finish line in excellent times.

Until now, the colours of the Memmert team had only been represented on the course of the Franconian triathlon classic by the yearly increasing number of employees participating in the Rothsee triathlon, which is the smaller version of the main “Challenge Roth” triathlon event. As of this year, we are happy to be the main sponsor and name-giver of the event – now called the...

Before the athletes who took part in the 10th Run & Bike event on 1st December allowed themselves to open the first door in the advent calendar, they first had to, or wanted to, run or cycle 17 km through the snowed in Ungerthal at temperatures just under the freezing point. Things were "a little bit" more pleasant for the spectators, because they could while away the time...

Every year on the Sunday after 3rd October, “German Unity Day”, the Schwabach RIBE city run and the Sparkasse half marathon take place. Memmert acted as an official sponsor for the first time, so of course many members of the Memmert sports team took up the challenge under ideal competition conditions. The result at the end was impressive: Memmert took third place in the team...
