Team Dieffenbacher Achieves Success in the Ottilienberglauf in Eppingen

Dieffenbacher Was Once Again the Largest Company Team Participating

"Run for the team" was the motto as 31 runners from Team Dieffenbacher began the 16th "Ottilienberglauf” race on April 29, 2017. On a glorious sunny day, a total of 255 runners made their way across three different distances from the Kraichgaustadion through the Eppinger Hardwald forest. With a time of 1:31:11 hours, Thorsten Elfner crossed the finish line as the winner of the half marathon, achieving the first victory for Team Dieffenbacher in this category. Jonah Klaiber made it onto the winner's podium for the 5 km race, securing second place for Dieffenbacher in the overall rankings. As the second fastest team in the 10 km race, Anton Mravlag, Konstantin Jenk and Marco Trusheim rounded out the streak of success and also made it onto the podium. We would like to congratulate all of the runners on their success!
