PIER running team

A group of sporty PhD students and Postdocs meets weekly in front of the CFEL building at Campus Bahrenfeld (DESY) for running practice in or nearby Volkspark Altona.

The idea of the PIER running team is to have fun, not to compete with one another. This is a nice opportunity to stay fit, get to know fellow researchers or meet friends for a chat.

Each summer, the PIER running team participates in the corporate running event "B2RUN" in Hamburg.

This year the event took place on 10 May in Volkspark close to DESY: More information.

It's a 6km run that is doable for runners of every skill. The PIER Helmholtz Graduate School sponsors the registration fee plus a nice running shirt for each of the running team's registrants. Contact: Bijan Chokoufe (bijan.chokoufe@desy.de). Training sessions in autumn/winter: Thursday mornings 9 a.m., meeting point: Campus Bahrenfeld (DESY), in front of building 2a.

PhD Social Hour and Summer BBQ

Getting to know each other, exchange of knowledge, having fun – PhD students are cordially invited to the "PhD Social Hour". Organizers are the PhD students' representatives from DOIT. The Social Hour usually takes places every 6-8 weeks in different bars downtown.
In summer, the Social Hour takes place "open air" on the patio of the DESY canteen with a BBQ for all PhD students. Meat, bread, and drinks are usually sponsored by PIER and all participants are encouraged to bring a speciality from their home country. More info and dates: DOIT, or via doit@desy.de.
