Every year, we have our annual trip abroad around February or March. Last years, the destination was London, where we participated in the Hyde Park Relays. This year however, we changed the destination and visited Berlin! We took the train to Berlin on an early Thursday morning, and arrived there around 15:00. After some relaxation, we visited a traditional 'Bierlokal' for pints, schnitzels and sauerkraut! The Thursday evening stood in the light of the traditional hazing of some Roadrunners, and we went clubbing late night.
Getting up early was a real challenge on Friday morning, but we stood up quite early and went for a traditional sightseeing during the day. Everything that Berlin has to offer has been visited: The Brandenburger Tor, the Reichstag, the Fernsehnturm and the Berliner Dom. During the Friday night, we stayed in the hostel, because we had to get up around 7.30 to participate in the Parkrun Berlin! While the thermometers stated it was -6 degrees, we put on our running leggings
More than 40 athletes, 9 cars, an unknown number of beers and an incomparable amount of fun: the Roadrunners visited Olne (Belgium) last weekend! Last year's trip was more horrifying than pleasant, with temperatures as low as -14 degrees, and one of Roadrunners who had to go to the hospital. How different it was this year: two days with brilliant sunshine and lovely temperatures.
On an early Saturday, we met in Rotterdam. The trip towards Belgium took about 2 hours, where we had lunch and spent our afternoon by hiking through some marvelous scenery. The rest of the day was reserved for dinner, and some drinks during the night in our hostel. The reason for our trip took place on Sunday: Le trèfle à quatre feuilles, a trail through the hills of the Ardennen. The choice was between running 12, 23, 33 or 42 kilometres. Everyone did the race on their own pace, but some of us were quite fast and even ended high in the final rankings from all participants! I think everyone agrees when I say that last weekend was great! Will you be joining next year?

On the 8th of October, we had the first race of the month! We were present with 9 Roadrunners. The weather was great and we had a nice day. Hannah and Manon ran the 5 km, Tom ran the 15 km. Martijn, Menno, Lena, Marijn, Bob and Pascal ran the 10 km. A compliment to Marijn who won the 10 km! I hope to see you the next race of the month: our own Erasmusronde (4th of November)!

28 april zijn de EUR-Roadrunners met een groep leden naar het oosten van het land afgereisd voor de Batavierenrace! Met een team van 25 lopers werd de 175 kilometer lange estafette afgelegd in net iets meer dan 14 uur, waarmee we op een mooie 48e plek zijn geëindigd. Daarna werd dit uiteraard gevierd met een mooi feestje met alle andere teams, wat het een geslaagd weekend maakte!

In January a group of Roadrunners travelled to Olne, Belgium to join the trail Trèfle à Quatre Feuilles.
This is a beautiful trail of 12, 23, 33 or 42K across the hills of the Ardennes. The weather was really nice, which gave us some nice views and slippery roads!
We all enjoyed the trip and we're looking forward to next year!
