For every km completed on the Global Real Estate Run, we have always made a sustainable and effective contribution to a more generation-friendly future.
So far we have planted trees, why we did that you can read in this article from ETH Zurich. Recently we would like to give the participants the choice, which contribution we should make for the completed km.
Currently we are looking for suitable alternatives to planting trees. If you have an idea, let us know. You can participate in the survey here.
2. tracking app
To be able to record the completed km, we use a sports app that can be installed on any smartphone regardless of manufacturer and age. While the high flexibility of applicability has many advantages, it also brings some disadvantages.
For example, tracking is somewhat less accurate than with a solution that uses special tracking hardware (e.g. a runner's watch). In addition, tracking glitches and interruptions can occur, which understandably lead to a disappointing event experience;
We are therefore looking into the introduction of other tracking solutions that are more in line with the needs of the more demanding participants. We would be grateful for any suggestions in this regard. You can share your suggestions with us here.
