Committees

Several committees are set up with a specific task or goal (organizing a race, trip, etc.) Our association has the following committees:

Events Committee

The Events Committee organizes social events throughout the year. Its purpose is to organize social events more coordinated and more effective. Thereby, it is another opportunity for members of the Roadrunners to become active in the association and to gain some experience in organizing activities. The committee will organize one or two social events per month. The event ‘Dinner of the Month’ will be organized every month. Besides that event, there will be another event once per two months. The events will be inexpensive and easily accessible for all members. The Events Committee is responsible for the organization of the following events:

  • Dinner of the Month
  • Jubilee/anniversary Roadrunners
  • National Holidays (For example: Sinterklaas)
  • Club weekend
  • Other activities, for example:
    • Movie night
    • Party
    • Bicycle trip
    • Pooling
    • Cultural trip
    • Opening of the season drink

Of course, every member of the Roadrunners can suggest ideas for the events.

Batavierenrace Committee

On the 23th of April the Batavierenrace, the world’s biggest student relay run, will take place again. As the EUR-Roadrunners we will of course join, since this event is always a great experience. With a team of around 15 participants we will form a team and run a route from Nijmegen to Enschede ‘together’. The Batavierenrace committee is in charge of arranging everything regarding the Batavierenrace. This includes:

  • Promoting the Batavierenrace among the members
  • Filling the team
  • Arranging car(s) and/or small bus
  • Making the (running)schedule
  • Finding enough tents, bike(s)
  • Doing groceries
  • Managing the cash/bills

Club magazine

Our club magazine called 'Courier' releases new editions 5 times per year. The magazine is one of the most important communication tools of our club. It provides a platform at which members could share their (running) stories. In the courier you can find interesting race reports, columns, running results, and more. Whenever you had a great running experience or a great story you can always send it to Menno, Santanu or Robin, the editors of the Courier  (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) The tasks of the Courier committee includes the following:

  • Taking responsibility for the Courier and setting the deadlines
  • Making sure a nice report about every race is written
  • Approaching people to write stories and reminding them of the deadlines
  • Sending interviews to the new members
  • Using information from the website
  • Editing articles and adding pictures

  • Coming up with promotion ideas
  • Finding enough Roadrunners who would like promoting the club during the Eurekaweek
  • Attending as much events as possible during the Eurekaweek
  • Contacting Erasmus sport

Erasmusronde

The most important and biggest race organised by the EUR-Roadrunners. With over 500 participants every year this race became an important showpiece of our association. Since our club was founded (1989) we started organising the Erasmusronde year after year. The committee is the most time-consuming, but also the most challenging. The tasks of the committee include:

  • promotion
  • taking care of the Erasmusronde website
  • finding sponsors
  • coordination on the day itself
  • communication with Erasmus Sport

Race secretary

An important function in which close collaboration with the board takes place regarding organising and promoting races among the members. Every month a special race is selected for the category 'race of the month'. The race secretary takes care of the race results, around 600 a year, and makes a yearly classification. Roadrunners could get points when they participate in races and run faster than another roadrunner. The Roadrunner with the most points wins a price. Besides that, the Jan Oosterhoff bokaal is handed to the person who attends most trainings in a year.
