Thun: "I just have to join in!" – Region: Thun



September 4, 1993: to revitalize the city center, the Thuner Stadtlauf takes place for the first time. "At that time the route around the Rathausplatz led through the Bälliz," remembers Peter Greber, who has since participated in every city run.

"To race 10 kilometers before the race, we had to drive seven laps and count them ourselves." Together with 3073 other runners – including the two other long-time starters Daniel Schnyder and 83-year-old Werner Steiner – Peter Greber was on Saturday at the 25th edition of the city that is being run with.

Fix in the program

"I am more of a low-speed runner, so the Thun City Run is almost a bit stressful for me," explains 54-year-old Greber. For the Steffisburger and his family, sports and especially jogging are part of everyday life: "In the past I even slept in the skiing holiday," he recalls. Today he takes it quietly with three jogging trips a week.

"I'm going to work with a colleague at noon." Depending on how much time we have or how the weather is, we can get it between seven and thirteen kilometers during a lunch break. "On his 50th birthday, Greber could experience a personal highlight:" I I participated in the Stockholm Marathon, which was a moment of goose bumps for me! »

"I pay a lot of attention to wearing good shoes and listening to my body."Peter Greber

The city run is still part of his program. "If there is already a run that is practically on my doorstep, I just have to join in!" His constant participation was mainly due to the fact that he had never seriously hurt.

"So far I have been lucky that I have never had to give up a race," says Greber. "I pay a lot of attention to wearing good shoes and listening to my body, and normal jogging in the wild makes you hard."

Many changes

The history of the Thuner Stadtlauf did not go smoothly: it was not implemented in 2003 because the OC missed too many members. And in 2005 had to be abandoned because of the flooding on the flight.

"It was very unfortunate, you could not align the race in these years", says Peter Greber, who has participated 32 times in the Grand Prix Bern. "At the same time, the route through the city becomes more and more attractive, especially for the spectators."

"Nowadays it hardly happens that someone is unprepared and almost falls over."Peter Greber

The runners have also changed in the past 25 years. "The participants are much better trained than before," says Greber. "Nowadays it hardly happens that someone is unprepared and almost falls over."

He does not prepare for the city, but he does not want to put too much effort into the race. "Last week I went jogging for the last time on Wednesday, and in the days before the race everything revolves around eating and drinking the right thing."

Good time

Although the track is not particularly fast because of the Schlossberg, Greber tries to make the ten kilometers each in less than 50 minutes – a goal he achieved with his very good time of 45:27 minutes.

"It's hard to compare times because the number changes all the time, but I feel very good and could now drive another five kilometers," says Peter Greber, who eventually gained 37th place. "We had ideal running weather and on Monday I'm going to jog the remaining five to six kilometers with my colleague," he says.
