The fastest pupils and schools in Berlin were back on the starting blocks on February 1st, 2019. For the sixth time, the ISTAF INDOOR Schools Cup was held. In four individual races, the fastest students of the age groups 2008 and 2009 were determined.
All starting positions were awarded on January 16th, 2019 in the large preliminary round at the Rudolf-Harbig-Halle. The Berlin Senate Department for Education, Youth and Science had invited under the umbrella of the initiative “Berlin hat Talent” to the elimination competitions with students of the years 2008 and 2009, divided into girls and boys. The six fastest in each of the four categories qualified for the ISTAF INDOOR finals.
Even the school teams had to qualify for one of the six starting places. For each team five girls and boys raced against each other in a 20x50m-shuttle race.
