As you may know, over the convention weekend we have tracked the walking distances of several of our crewmembers in order to find out what the total distance would be that has been walked by our entire crew.
During the closing ceremony we announced a very impressive score for this distance, but that score was only the intermediate count used for the competition. Because well after everyone had left our crew was still working very hard on cleaning up the convention, which involves a lot more walking. And several crewmembers even kept working, and walking, on Monday.
Counting up all the extra kilometers from Sunday evening and Monday we have a final count for out total walking distance that we want to share. The total distance our crew walked during the weekend is 8034,95 kilometers. To put that into perspective: that is about the distance from our convention grounds to Beijing.
We are very proud of this impressive feat and want to thank all our volunteers for their hard work and dedication throughout the weekend.
