Saddling up horses for a good cause: 11th Peter Maffay Foundation "Walk & Run

Saddle up your horses, set off on the seven-kilometre course and be inspired by the fresh air and cheers from the crowd! After the head has worked all day, it's the legs' turn in the evening: On May 15, 2024, the 11th Peter Maffay Foundation "Walk & Run" will start as part of the BMPK24 for the benefit of the Peter Maffay Foundation.
Starting at 6:30 p.m., the run will take you through the wonderful natural landscape of the Odenwald. Each and every individual crosses the finish line as a winner, because everyone is running together for the benefit of disadvantaged and traumatized children.
Of course, the "Walk & Run" is free of charge for all congress participants, as SERVIEW will cover the entry fee. External runners are also very welcome and can take part for an entry fee of ten euros. All proceeds will be donated to the Peter Maffay Foundation. Join us - whether running or cheering - and do something good as part of the BMPK. We are expecting around 250 motivated runners at the start, so you will be in good company!

The Peter Maffay Foundation has been committed to helping traumatized and disadvantaged children and young people for over 20 years by providing them with therapeutic activity vacations.

Round Up & Bonfire (May 15, 2024 from 7:30 pm)

On Wednesday evening, directly after the charity run in aid of the Peter Maffay Foundation, the first Wild West-style networking event begins!
There will not only be a barbecue under the stars, but also a cozy dinner - a real western atmosphere awaits you, complete with campfire and barrels. Whether you have actively participated in the Maffay Run as a runner or passively as a spectator, grab your cowboy hat, saddle up your horse and ride off into the sunset with us. This event is simply a must and provides the perfect backdrop for personal interaction between the participants - completely informal, completely authentic, completely Wild West.
Clink glasses at the saloon bar, try your luck at horseshoes or listen to the sounds of live country music. The evening promises to be an unforgettable journey back in time to the rugged and romantic era of the Wild West, where the spirit of community and simple enjoyment are paramount.
So, are you ready to join us? The Wild West starts right after the Maffay Run, and we can't wait to meet you there!

Wild Wild Best Party (May 16, 2024 - From 19:00)

The evening of May 16, 2024 will be all about the Wild West.

Whether cool like Wyatt Earp, elegant like Belle Starr or casual like Billy the Kid, let yourself be inspired by the looks of the western heroes. You can also expect some sparkling surprises, such as lasso throwing and line dancing, which will make this networking party an unforgettable experience.
