Where we come from.
Where we come from.
a group of friends met as pacers at the NIKE+ Run Club. Since we wanted to get better in running, we started working out together and noticed a common vibe and spirit in the group. Meeting point was and still is Cafe KRAFT. New people started showing up for our runs and a ‚pacing‘ approach didn’t suit our crew anymore. We didn’t want to pace, we wanted to work out hard as well: #geilballern was created!
So, we started to create workouts where every level can go as hard or soft as they want. We’ll do mile repeat workouts with you, or bridge sprints, never leaving anyone behind, but also never pacing. We’ll make sure everyone is warmed up, knows the route and workout. And then, it’s go time: RUN! We’ll provide the surroundings and infrastructure, you do the work. In the end, our crew is based on friendship. Always bring good vibe, that’s mandatory.
Welcome to the KRAFT Runners where it's about good vibe and good people!
It is slogan, our hashtag!
Consisting of two independent words, you won't find geilballern in any dictionary.
The colloquial verb ballern which may stand for radical alcohol consumption, hammering a ball in soccer or even hard banging in the context of sex. The adjective geil on the other hand may mean horny, lusty, sexy, cool, awesome and many more.
Combine those two and transform it into how we see running and you'll catch our drift.
our workouts are and always will be for free, running musn't cost you anything
although, running brought us together, our mindset and friendship is what keeps us together
we don’t want sad faces; if you had a rough day, we’ll make sure that this will change - KRAFT time is good time!
if you don’t run, you cheer and if the workout is over it doesn’t mean we go home. Other activities are highly welcome as well; especially nightlife activities
we always wanted to include everyone, the running newbie as well as the pro. Just try it out, all our workouts are designed for a great running experience for every level
doesn’t mean you need to run a sub35 on 10k. But maybe we can get you there one day (if you want to)
