17. October 2022

BERLIN. What a home match! Deborah “Debbie” Schöneborn from SCC Berlin secured victory in the “degewo Great 10K” on Sunday (16.20.22) with an impressive performance. The 28-year-old European marathon team champion won the popular race in 32:54 minutes, improving her own ten-kilometer record by two seconds. Also with a personal best, Thea Heim (33:41 minutes; LG Telis Finanz Regensburg) finished second ahead of Blanka Dörfel (34:50; SCC Berlin). In the men’s race, Kenya’s Micah Kiplagat Cheserek triumphed in a fast 27:57 minutes ahead of his compatriots Vincent Kiprotich Kibet (28:00) and Lawi Kosgei (28:56).

“A very good start of the season, personal best time and a super atmosphere, the people supported me unbelievably great on the whole course – the run was just mega-cool”, cheered “Debbie” Schöneborn, who almost even broke the “family record”. Her currently injured twin sister Rabea, who was cheering along the course, had already mastered the ten kilometers in 32:54 minutes. With the victory, “Debbie” Schöneborn also secured the Berlin-Brandenburg championship title, as the Berlin-Brandenburg road running championship over ten kilometers was also held as part of the “degewo Great 10K”.

A total of 5,000 sports enthusiasts took to the starting line, including 500 children – never before have so many young runners been on the 800-meter course at Charlottenburg Palace. Race director Martin Seeber: “It was simply great to see how much fun the youngest runners in particular had on the course. The ‘degewo Great 10K’ combines both: fast times and an attractive program for the whole family.

“Germany’s fastest “ten” went from Charlottenburg Palace through City West and the Berlin Zoo back to the Palace, a smaller lap turned the youngest starters in the children’s run (800 meters).
