MANN+HUMMEL is a global enterprise with strong ties to the Ludwigsburg region. Many colleagues at the company headquarters come from the city or the surrounding district and are involved in activities in their local area, for example in cultural or sports clubs.

We have therefore been a steadfast partner of the Ludwigsburg Citylauf for many years. On the occasion of the 16th Citylauf on 12th July 2014, we will once again supply a powerful contingent – plenty of feet on the ground. In 2013, over 250 runners in the MANN+HUMMEL team tackled the10 kilometre course.

Running alone or in teams at Ludwigsburg Citylauf

The special feature of the Ludwigsburg Citylauf is that colleagues can choose whether to run the 10K distance alone or in a two-person team.

People are very keen on running at our company. The company sports club ‘Jogging’ is in fact one of the most popular. Even for our Board of Management,  in spite of business trips and great international responsibility, the Ludwigsburg Citylauf is an absolute highlight in the running calendar.

The image of the long-distance runner is, in my view, most appropriate for the MANN+HUMMEL Group: demonstrating our perseverance and constant desire to improve.

Free running

So that we might field a similarly strong team as last year, MANN+HUMMEL is in 2014 again paying the registration fee for all colleagues sporting the green and yellow MANN-FILTER running kit (T-shirt and shorts) on the starting line. For people who do not have this MANN-FILTER outfit, please send an e-mail to

Ludwigsburg Citylauf 2013

We would also like to encourage all friends and partners of our colleagues, as well as customers and suppliers, to enthusiastically promote movement and health by joining us at the Ludwigsburg Citylauf. To enable the whole course to glow in the green and yellow MANN-FILTER colours, we will also pay the registration fee for the first 200 non-MANN+HUMMEL participants. The only condition is that they wear our green and yellow MANN-FILTER running kit at the start of the race.
