Coming Soon: Virtual Race in October 2020


We start our virtual race in a few days. The athletes from Dresden will start in the direction of Columbus and the Runners from Columbus go ahead to Dresden.

Everybody can be part of this challenge. We will have only 3 weeks to challenge the 5000 miles between the sistercities.

HOW? We will publish a link to enter the kilometers you have run.

Life is faster than internet

Life is faster than internet // Daniel`s trails at GeorgiaLoop and in Alabama and our online report at the end of May

Provocative question with a wink: Is the internet the future?

At the end of April 2020 and May 2020 we have to establish, that your support und your response to Daniels Call is much faster and stronger than the media coverage and reporting.

various assumptions to this fact:

(a) Living in the lived reality is better than any posting.

(b) It’s the hard facts that count in life.

(c)We humans are the ones who change the world. Our actions and our doing decides what happens.

(d) You do things. You move. You’re helping. Not the selfie.

(e) You guys rock.

“Increase Your PullUps weekly” Challenge

It’s time for a new challenge!  

The challenge is: “Can you increase your pull-ups?” So, are you able to do one more pull-up every week? How many weeks do you estimate this increase will last?

Note: The way your pull-up is done doesn’t matter, any kind of grip, any style is allowed. Even from tilted pullups. Only one pull-up per week has to be more.  You can start with 0 or 5 or more pull-ups. It’s your pull-up, it’s your challenge!

We wouldn’t be “Spartan Donate” if we didn’t collect for this challenge for a good cause. We have the following possibilities to participate. Share your power with those who desperately need it.

We Spartans start with 8 pull-ups in this calendar week 50 in 2019. A carefully calculated estimate is 10 weeks. So at least one more pull-up for 10 weeks.

sporty challenge in april 2019

We call again to your support*.

On April 13th the 1st Holyshitchallenge will take place in Hamburg. I don’t know if the arms, legs, buttocks, hands etc. can stand the 100km rowing. Right. 100km rowing on the rowing ergometer. That means not only sitting about 8-9h, but here the name #holyshitchallenge really becomes program.

*As always you can support us with a donation or start a challenge yourself and join us. There’s nothing better than tearing something up, enjoying it and spreading the joy for those who need it.

second challenge and new wave of donations

The second action: the worldwide sporting Holiday Challenge in rowing


Every year, between the American Thanksgiving and the Christmas season, the rowing manufacturer Concept2 runs a worldwide challenge to row a total of 200km these days. We want to accept this challenge, give free run to our sore muscles and be proud in the end to have burned some calories and to crack the quite hard target. At the same time we want to use this time to collect more donations for our donors.


Our first charity action was fantastic. You are fantastic. Because we have exceeded our target within two months. Thank you very much. Our next recipients will also be children, so be curious about every kilometre rowed, every bubble on your hands and support us in our last campaign in 2018.

The contributions can start with 1 cent, the current average at this wave is 17,60€.

Charity TShirt @Columbusmarathon

The first action: our Charity-TShirt for the Columbus Marathon in Ohio on 21.10.2018

We are five selected athletes who are allowed to take part in the charity run in Columbus for the city of Dresden.
For this purpose we have launched a T-shirt campaign to further underline and feed the charity idea!
There are altogether 10 personally printed and individual T-Shirts which we assign from 50€ / 50$ to the highest bidder.
Printed by yourself? That’s right. On the front and back are the logos of the streets of Dresden and Columbus printed,
on which we move our jogging shoes along. We have put all our artistic talent together
and the city manhole cover on the T-shirt.

After the marathon in Columbus we want to auction the T-shirts to the highest bidder. 50% of the proceeds will be donated to the Nationwide Hospital for Childrens in Columbus and to Sonnenstrahl eV in Dresden.
The bid starts at 50€ or 50 US $.
