From 6.-9.6.2013 here in Neumünster the Holstenköste is taking place again. There a special event is the Köstenlauf which lets hundreds of participants sweat.

 

Speaking about running... Did you know that more and more marathon events are supported by the RFID technology?

Shoes and laces of marathon runners are equipped with RFID chips and because of that current locations and respective intermediate times can be displayed at any time easily. At the marathon in New York this system is already in use for several years and at the Houston Marathon, for example, you can even track the runners on an online map. After the run you get detailed summary and video clips. RFID helps the organizers to make the event as attractive and exciting as possible and besides cheatings can be uncovered.
