Every spring in Lucerne there is a city run or Luzerner Stadtlauf. This year EF was part of it and a team of 7 staff from the operations department took place in the run competing in the business category. In the lead up to the race everyone started training intensively in order to perform at their best for the 3.2 km run in the city runners category. There are many events throughout the day from family runs to the more professional athletes but the team event began at 18:00pm. Everyone was ready to start and mingled with the other 98 teams in the race, there were around 1000 participants in this category alone. The EF team, sporting the trademark blue T shirts sent all the way from Boston for the race, came across the line with an impressive time of 1:16.02,5 collectively, gaining the 47th place in the total ranking. The group all wore the same shirts emblazoned with the EF logo that had arrived from the headquarters just in time for the race and luckily before all the disruptions with the flights due to the volcanic ash. This was a great event in the city of Lucerne and another opportunity for EF to show its unique team spirit!
