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 saturday the 4th of November was the Erasmusronde. There were 546 participants, who can ran the 5 km, 10 km or 15 km. Did you know that our oldest participant 82 was? He ran the 10 km in about 1.05! Great job! The weather of the day was good till the start of the 10 km. A lot of respect to all the participants who ran in the rain! But despite the rain we had a great day thanks to you and your support. A lot of you help to clean and that's why we want to thank you. One last thing: two of our Roadrunners won a price. Hannah was the first girl on the 5 km and Joris was the 3rd on the 15 km! Good job guys. We hope to see you next year!

On Saturday the 14th of October, we joined the Veluweloop in Wageningen with a group of 12 persons!
The day started very (very!) early, but the race through the beautiful forests in the Veluwe were more than worth it. We ran 88 kilometers, with individual distance ranging from 4 to 11 kilometers. In between the running, we enjoyed some ice cream, beer and finished with a great, mediterranean meal.
