HOODLAPS VOL.02

BERLIN-MARATHON 2019

projects October 1, 2019

HOOD LAPS – THE MOST EXCITING 400 METER RELAY THROUGH KREUZBERG EVER.

RUNNING HAS CHANGED A LOT IN THE LAST FEW YEARS AND NOWHERE IS THIS MORE PREVALENT THAN AT THE ULTIMATE RUNNING EVENT – THE MARATHON.

THESE WORDS WERE WRITTEN BY THE LUCY THORPE ON HIGHSNOBIETY AND WE FEEL PROUD TO BE PART OF THAT POSITIVE EVOLVEMENT IN RUNNING. SINCE 2013 WE TRY TO continuously ADD A DIFFERENT FLAVOUR TO OUR RUNNING WEEKENDS AND WE LOVE TO DO THAT ON OUR HOME TURF IN KREUZBERG.

THE 2O19 BERLIN-MARATHON WEEKEND WAS A VERY SPECIAL ONE. NOT ONLY DID WE HAVE A VERY LARGE TEAM OF BRAVES RUNNING HARD for 42K THROUGH THE RAIN ON SUNDAY, but WE ALSO DROPPED OUR FIRST OFFICIAL MARATHON COLLECTION WITH NIKE.

ON SATURDAY THOUGH, THE DAY BEFORE THE RACE, WE HAD SOMETHING ELSE TO BE PROUD OF: WE HOSTed THE SECOND EDITION OF THE FASTEST RACE IN KREUZBERG AKA ‘HOOD LAPS’.


This year the competitors came from FAR. Volt Floyd from Istanbul, TrackMafia from London, Patta Running Team from Amsterdam. In total, we had 16 teams of 4 runners all decked out in our brand new street racer sHIRTS that we exclusively designed FOR this RELAY event. GO COP THEM NOW IN OUR STORE:

AFTER-HOURS OF RACING, BBQ, TINY’S PIZZA, FLEA MARKET VIBES, AND some RAIN DELAYS, THE LOCAL HOMIES FROM KRAFTRUNNERS TOOK HOME THE 500€ CASH BY RULING THE SUPER EXCITING FINALS.

ALL HOOD LAPS MERCH was DESIGNED THIS YEAR BY LUCA LAURENTI MKLANE FROM ROME IN COLLABORATION WITH BIRTHDAY BOY JOEY ELGERSMA.

HOOD LAPS IS BY FAR ONE OF OUR FAVOURITE EVENTS OF THE YEAR AND WE CAN’T WAIT TO SEE ALL OF YOU NEXT YEAR AGAIN. THANK YOU GEWOBAG FOR GIVING US PERMISSION TO RACE THROUGH THE BEST HOOD IN BERLIN. AND HAVE YOU SEEN THE HOODLAPS RELAY SHORT FILM BY NILS HANSEN ALREADY?
