started for the good cause.

Help reaches twice

Helping can be so simple. And this is precisely what makes it so special. By doing the Virtual Charity Run, we are doing something good for our health and helping others at the same time.

​How does this work?

Erbe Elektromedizin has launched the Virtual Charity Run as part of its Tübingen Erbe Run. ​This year our donation will go to our social partner DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS: They will receive 50 Cents for every kilometer one of us runs in the event.

Anyone who takes part in the Erbe Run in Tübingen on September 18 will donate their kilometers to the Tübinger Tafel e. V. .

As the Erbe community we are united through team spirit and our sense of social responsibility.

We want to make an exceptional contribution through joint effort: Be exceptional and join our community!



Registration for the Virtual Charity Run 2022 is now open. You can be part of it too!



Become a member of our Erbe Roadrunner community. Together with friends and family worldwide you can run for a good cause. The larger our community is, the larger the donation will be. Join in!


For every kilometer one of us runs, 50 Cents go to this year’s social partner: DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS (Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)).


More than 800 people took part in last year's Virtual Charity Run, covering almost 27,000 kilometers together. Runners from several countries collected money for the construction of the Tübingen Hospice with every step they took. 


The Erbe Roadrunners are our team - the team of Erbe Elektromedizin GmbH. What connects us? Our team spirit. Anyone who enjoys running can join us.


Whether in Germany or anywhere else in the world: form a team and join in!


No matter how, no matter where, no matter when.


Many people have discovered the joy of running during the pandemic period. 

You can run as often as you like between September 10 and September 18, 2022, and collect your miles for a good cause.


You are not a sporting ace? That doesn’t matter. This is all about people who need our help.

Every kilometer counts.



DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS (Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF)) provides emergency medical aid worldwide in crisis and war zones and after natural disasters.

The international organization helps quickly, efficiently and unbureaucratically - without asking about the origin, religion or political convictions of the people affected.
The international and national staff of DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS work in around 70 countries - doctors and nurses, midwives and logisticians. They treat sick and wounded people, care for malnourished children or provide clean drinking water and latrines.


No emergency aid without donations

Humanitarian aid is not free - and DOCTORS WITHOUT BORDERS works without government funding in order to be able to help people in need regardless of political interests. Only private donations make the emergency aid missions of DOCTORS WITHOUT FRONTIERS possible - from supporters who think across borders about people in need.


The history of the Erbe Roadrunners goes back to 1998. An Erbe sales employee brought together a team of 10 co-workers to enter what was then known as the Tübingen City Run. Managing Directors Christian O. Erbe and Reiner Thede supported the sports initiative, had T-shirts printed for the group and invited all the runners to breakfast after the event. This breakfast became a real tradition, like the one established for the annual Tübingen punt race, with the slowest participant receiving a bottle of cod liver oil. In the case of the Erbe Roadrunners, its founder accepts a bottle of the stuff in good spirits every year.

And so we know who you are or where you run, you can download your t-shirt sticker here.

The sticker is double A4 size. Print the file, choose your favorite design, cut it out and enter your name or the country where you run in the empty field. Attach the sticker to your shirt with safety pins or tape.

What else we wish from you: Have fun!
