Dear Roadrunners,

Last year we were fast, but this year we want to be even faster! So we need you to make this happen! Keep the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of May free in your agenda for the BATAVIERENRACE! This is a student relay from Nijmegen all the way to Enschede! Luckily you've got a team behind you to fulfill all 175 km's. The distances for the runners varies from 3 till a bit over 10 km and the relay contains in total 25 stages, of which are 16 men’s and 9 women’s stages. The night-shift, and official start of the race, kicks-off in Nijmegen at 22:30 hrs at the ‘Grote Markt’ (stage 1-9). Next, the morning-shift starts in Ulft at 06.30 a.m. (stage 10-17) and the day shift starts in Barchem at 11.00 a.m. The final stage is a combined men’s and women’s stage which starts at the Old Market in Enschede, and finishes at the campus of the University of Twente. You can add in your subscription what distance you prefer! You will run the stage together with another Roadrunner accompanying you by bike. Afterwards you will switch roles and after 2 stages there will be two new team members to run the next stages. We will transfer everyone with a small bus from stage to stage.

We will sleep in tents on the premises of the campus of the University of Twente. The morning and afternoon group are expected to travel to this location (i.e. by public transport) so that they can set up their own tents as well as those for the night group. The next day, the morning and afternoon group will travel to the restart locations by touring car.

Friday evening there is an opportunity to have a drink, however, the big party is on Saturday evening! Through out the weekend we will provide breakfast, lunch, dinner and some soft drinks. Sunday morning we are expected to leave the campsite around 11.00 a.m., and then this wonderful weekend unfortunately already comes to an end. 

The costs for this weekend are €50,- including the race, the camping, the food and the access to the party's! If you've got a tent for camping please add that in your registration as well!

Donors can register from the 16th of february for this event! After 25 people have subscribed, you can still sign up but are on the waiting list! After the 31th of march you can't cancel for the event anymore!

Lots of love,

The batavierencommission,

Ruben Eijkelkamp, Robin van Merle and Lisa de Wit
