Start event @Runmysilkroad at Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg
Finally, Kai Markus has started his amazing journey from Hamburg to Shanghai. Within the upcoming 235 days he will be running 12.000 km and pass 8 countries.
Surrounded by many friends, his family and sponsors it has been an amazing kick off for his journey. He left Hamburg with a big smile on his face. @Runmysilkroad is his dream and therefore he could not wait any longer to finally start running his journey. Yesterday he ran already from Hamburg to Geesthacht - in total 32 km.
During the first couple of km friends, family and also we as the 361° team of Europe joined him. For us personally - a very emotional moment to say goodbye for the next 7 months, since we have spent a lot of time preparing this moment.
Now he is on the road with Victor, his friend and driver of a VW Beetle old timer who joined him on his way to China. We are all very excited and wish him all the best for his journey. We will follow every moment and Kai can always count on us! That’s for sure.
