On September 16th Bunerts Lichterlauf (run for lights) in Duisburg takes place for the 15th time. Same age as mika:timing. And they know each other well. mika:timing has been the timing partner from the start. At the Lichterlauf all athletes run the course around the regatta field for a good cause. Proceeds go towards financing the operation of the light system along the popular running course during the fall and winter time.

m:t now contacted Jörg Bunert, initiator and organizer of the Lichterlauf, – and congratulated.


Congratulations on your anniversary! 15th Bunerts Lichterlauf – how does that sound to you?

I am surprised that it’s already 15 years since I started and organized the run.It feels like yesterday …

15 years with mika:timing – what’s the best thing about this relationship?

The long-standing, personal, good relationship with the teamleaders.

About theLichterlauf: How was the beginning?

Fantastic! The first race drew the most participants, because it was so special. That evening the lanterns have been switched on for the first time, and no runner from Duisburg and surroundings wanted to miss out on this.But the Lichterlauf still is one of the largest 5k and 10k runs in North Rhine-Westphalia. A lot of celebrities participated in the past years.

Will there be anything special for the anniversary run?

No, we will stick to our well-tried and successful organization. „Never change a winning team“.


Registration for this year’s Bunerts Lichterlauf closes on September 7.
