Die Badische Meile… sowas gibt’s…

Heute laufe ich die „Badische Meile“, ein Volkslauf, hier in Karlsruhe.

Die Badische Meile ist ein historisches Längenmaß. Bis 1819 bestimmte der “Königliche Fuß” wie das Volk in Baden Entfernungen zu berechnen hatte. Acht Kilometer, 888 Meter und 89 Zentimeter legte Markgraf Carl Friedrich anno dazumal mit seinem Gefolge in zwei Wegstunden durch den Hardtwald zurück und definierte somit die längste Landmeile Deutschlands. Mit Einführung des Metersystems ging die Umrechnung des alten Maßes nicht ganz auf, so dass die “krumme Zahl” von 8,88889 Kilometer als Badische Meile festgelegt wurde.

Um 10:30 geht’s los!
