Preliminary Training

As a preparation of the Racenights, trainings take place at DISD:

Every Saturday, starting September 8th, from 12 – 2 pm

In September & October the training will take place in the sports hall, afterwards it will be on the sports field.

Practice in the following disciplines is possible:

  • Hurdle Race
  • Long Jump
  • High Jump
  • Pole Jumping (introduction)
  • circuit training and gymnastics as preparation for the above diciplines

A few tips for choosing the right competition:

  • Everyone can participate in the sprint disciplines.
  • Taking part in the middle-distance of 1500 m is only recommended if the student has already run such or a longer distance.
  • This also applies to the disciplines of hurdles, spear throwing and high jumping! Students who nevertheless dare to take part in the high jump, receive the full support of Mr Harenberg.


Please come dressed in sportswear.
