Gläserne Manufaktur sponsors the Dresden Marathon

With two zero-emissions e-Golfs* as the lead and timekeeping vehicles and through its participation in the big marathon party on Strassburger Platz, Gläserne Manufaktur is for the first time sponsoring Dresden’s most important sporting event, which will mark its twentieth anniversary this year.

On your marks, get set, go: for the first time, Volkswagen’s Gläserne Manufaktur will be lining up at the 20th Dresden Marathon with two zero-emissions e-Golfs, which will lead the marathon runners and provide timekeeping. Around 9,000 runners from all over the world are expected to participate in the anniversary marathon, which is to be held on Sunday, 21 October.

Gläserne Manufaktur is also sponsoring the big marathon party on Strassburger Platz: it will offer handicrafts fun for children, while samba drummers from Prague and a DJ have been hired to provide musical entertainment at the party. The party will begin at 10:30 am – with a varied range of attractions for the whole family on Strassburger Platz. By the way: regular guided tours of Gläserne Manufaktur are free of charge not only this Sunday, but also over the next few Sundays.

Gläserne Manufaktur will be participating in the 20th marathon with its own team. More than 30 runners will be competing in the various distances.    

The first starting signal for the race will be fired at 9:30 am on Sunday. Four distances are on offer: 4.2 kilometres, the ten-kilometre route, the 21-kilometre half-marathon and the traditional 42.195-kilometre marathon distance.
