EGGER Biskupiec team at the Abentojra Rally 2018
On the 1st of September 2018, 10 of our colleagues from Egger Biskupiec took part in the annual orienteering rally in the area of Olsztyn - Abentojra. This event was organized for the fifth time by Warmia and Mazury Pedestrian and Cycling Orientation Club "Abentojra". On the route around Olsztyn, Egger's employees took part in three different categories: family route, walking and cycling route. The competition took place over a distance of 15 to 100 km.
Both amateurs and professionals took part in the rally - adrenaline lovers, as well as families with children. It is an undertaking created by enthusiasts of active recreation, who want to show how beautiful region Warmia is. Participation in Abentojra requires from the participants of the competition, physical fitness, the ability to use a map and compass.
We are very pleased that our colleagues managed to find all checkpoints - which required covering long distances and many natural obstacles. Thanks to their commitment and participation in the Egger initiative, more funds have been raised for local charities. Egger is committed to the health of its employees, so we promote and support running and wandering disciplines.
Under the Egger Run programme, the company allocates funds to local charities for every kilometre travelled by our employees. EGGER encourages employees to run by providing them with sportswear and by reimbursing their participation fees in organized races.
Each kilometer driven by 5 Euros for charity.
