The traditional anniversary race at UPT

After the Politehnica 100% performance Gala, which marked the entry in the year 100 of the UPT and in which 100 deserving students were rewarded with 1000 euros each, the series of anniversary events continued, on November 12, 2019, with another established tradition in Politehnica University Timisoara.

In order to reflect the importance that UPT has always shown to sport, since its inception, a few years ago, a race was started, within the events dedicated to the anniversary of the institution, in which students, teachers and all those who are next to UPT run a number of run tours equal to the number of years of existence of the university.

The event, organized in partnership with the Sports Club Alergotura Association, has enjoyed a real success since the first edition, has become a tradition, and this year, on November 12, on the "Știința" stadium, under the title "100 for Poli", 99 track tours were conducted, one for each year of existence of the Polytechnic, plus one additional tour to celebrate the entry in the year 100.

Each track tour had a leader who ran with the flag of the Polytechnic. According to tradition, the first tour leader was the rector of Politehnica University Timisoara himself, Prof. eng. Viorel-Aurel Şerban, PhD, and the last tour was led, as in the previous years by Prof. eng. Daniel Dan, PhD, vice-rector of the institution. In the traditional race, each faculty, each department and each student organization within UPT had representatives in the running race.

It is worth noting that one of the UPT teachers, prof. assoc. arch. Cătălina Bocan, PhD, the director of the Department of Architecture, ran all the 100 rounds of the stadium (practically the equivalent of a marathon). Last but not least, we appreciate the quite consistent presence of the children, the youngest tour leader being 10 years old.
