Merck KGaA, Darmstadt, Germany, running track: We're on the move!
Get up and get moving during the workday - quickly and easily! In June 2015, we opened our own running track, a signed four-kilometer path that leads around our site in Darmstadt. With its four starting points and path markings every 400 meters, the track can be used for many purposes.
It is suited to all tastes, whether people out walking to get to know the premises, beginners, or even more ambitious runners engaged in interval training. It can be used at any time − to relax during lunch or to take a simple head-clearing jog. For instance, changing rooms with showers and lockers allow employees to go running during their lunch break.
Our running track is a component of our Health Management efforts. It constitutes part of an overall concept with activities to promote the fitness and health of our employees.
Beyond this, we also support the annual Darmstädter Firmenlauf (Darmstadt Company Run), and we regularly field a team of employees in the JP Morgan Chase Company Run held every year in Frankfurt, Germany.
