Committees

Our association couldn’t exist without our invaluable members, especially the ones that are part of one of the committees. If you are interested in the committees, or maybe even want to join one, you can read more about them on this page! All committees of the EUR-Roadrunners are an easily accessible opportunity for all members of the EUR-Roadrunners to become more active in the association and to gain experience in organizing events. Furthermore, committee members can join our annual committee bonding trip!

If you would like to be part of a committee or if you have ideas for a new committee you can send an e-mail to voorzitter@eur-roadrunners.nl or fill in the form below. 

Activities Committee

The Activities Committee organizes social events throughout the year. The committee organizes the monthly ‘Dinner of the Month’, where each month we dine in a different restaurant in Rotterdam. Besides that, they come up with a lot of fun events, all of which are inexpensive and easily accessible for all members. The Events Committee is responsible for the organization of the following events:

  • Dinner of the Month
  • Drinks
  • Any other fun event!

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

Members: Kaya, Jakub, Tygo

Batavierenrace Committee

Every year in April, the Batavierenrace, the world’s biggest student relay run, takes place. As the EUR-Roadrunners we will of course join, since this event is always a great experience. With a team of 25 participants we will run a relay from Nijmegen to Enschede, in total 175km! 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

Members: Lauren, Romain, Mátyás

Erasmusronde Committee

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

For more information you can take a look at www.erasmusronde.nl

Trip Committee

The trip committee organizes a trip every year, in which we go on holiday to another country. In the past few years we have been to Poland, Morocco and Denmark.

Members: Lasse, Nadia, Abel, Lizz
Contact: contact one of the members via WhatsApp, or mail president@eur-roadrunners.nl.

Triathlon Committee

Roadrunners works together with the student swimming association Ragnar and student cycling/ice skating association E.S.S.V. Alcedo to prepare students for a triathlon! The committee chooses a race and sets up a rigorous training schedule to ultimately prepare our members for a 1/8th, 1/4th or even longer triathlon. The training involves basic technique training at each of our associations, trainings and lessons by experienced triathletes, transition clinics, open water swimming trainings, a mini-triathlon, social activities and much more!

Website Committee

Our website committee designs and manages the Roadrunners website. Besides that they are the ones you can approach if you (or your committee) have/has any IT related questions. The people in this committee are known to be awesome and never put anything untruthful on the website. Also, please give us money for committee bonding (beer).
