If you are living in Frankfurt...
The Frankfurt lifestyle does not really promote exercise or sports. However, there are of course most people who use a bike to commute as the city is geographically a small and flat area. However, to really get into sports you need to actively seek a club of your sport of choice. Tennis, squash, volleyball, cycling... check this site for events and good links to sporting clubs http://www.frankfurt.de/sis/English.html
JP Morgan CCC
Last wednesday on 18 June this years JP Morgan Chase Corporate Challenge took place. I joined the run for the 3th time. It is so great and lots of fun. More than 50.000 people join the competition. It's fun to see the different T-Shirts which each company has.
Next Challenge will take place on 16 June 2004

"Race for the Cure"
This year's race will take place on 29 June 2003 and starts at 10am. I joined the race two years ago and it was a great day. I will join again this year.
You can chose a 2 km walk or the 5 km running. The start is at the "Museumsufer" crossing Schweizerstrasse. The running course takes you around the Main.

The home of soccer club Eintracht Frankfurt and NFL Europe side Frankfurt Galaxy is in April 2003 undergoing extensive alterations. I guess this is in preparation for the 2006 soccer world cup? Stands behind the goals / endzones are just about complete, one side is being built and another old stand was still there, not for long I guess?
Tuesday Night Skate
From April to October there is the Tuesday Night Skate. Start (8.30 pm) and Finish (aroung 11 pm) is at Deutschherrenufer. You are skating/blading about 33 - 45 km. The route varies and is not published beforehand because the organisers want to avoid skaters to join later. They are afraid of accidents.
Equipment: Roller skates and protection
