Training schedule

Welcome to the website of the students athletics association Asterix!

E.S.A.V. Asterix offers for the students the possibility to practice their favorite sport, athletics, for over forty years. Each Monday and Wednesday evening our members train on the track under the supervision of one of our professional trainers. Furthermore, Asterix also organizes several races, social events and drinks. If you are excited about athletics, running and about having a good time, join one of our training sessions for free to get an impression!
