The Batavierenrace is a relay race over 175 km from Nijmegen to Enschede, divided into 25 stages (16 men’s stages and 9 women’s stages) varying from 3.6 km to 10,. km. 350 teams, which means more than 8,500 students, participate in this race. This number of participants gave us a mention in the Guinness Book of Records. The Batavierenrace is a mixture of a competitive sport-event as well as a big social event. At midnight on the 23rd of April the race starts and the first runners will dive into the night for their heroic battle against the elements and the temptations of a warm bed. This is the beginning of 18 hours of sportsmanship. Afterwards, the biggest student party in Europe takes place, with over 12,000 visitors!

After a spectacular opening the race starts at midnight near the Radboud Sports Centre of Nijmegen. An unique feature of the Batavierenrace is, that part of the race takes place during the night. To avoid overtaxing the route and to have a good registration of stage times, the start takes place in seven different start groups. There are also three restarts, to make sure the whole field of runners does not stretch out too far. These restarts take place in Ulft, Barchem, and Enschede (Old Market). The participants of the race wear a runners vest which contains a chip that registers the stage times. Every runner is accompanied by a teammate by bike for navigation, safety and moral support. The route of the Batavierenrace leads the runners through crowded relay points as well as lonely windy country roads in the middle of nowhere.

We will join this event together with ESAC (the climbing association). So it is a realy good and fun activity to get to know a lot of different people.
