After last year’s success, Japie will participate again this year in the Batavierenrace! This year the Batavierenrace will take place from the 28th of April until the 30th of April. This fantastic relay running event is according to the Guinness Book of Records the biggest relay running event in the world, with over 8000 students participating each year. The race course starts in the city center of Nijmegen and finishes at the university of Twente, covering a total of 175 km. The teams consist of 25 runners (16 men and 9 women) who split the individual stages. The length of these stages can range between 3.6 and 10.5 km.

Of course, this weekend will not only consist of running, there will also be a big party in Enschede until early in the morning. So, if you think you want to participate in this awesome event, save the date!

In preparation for this event, a running clinic will be provided for all participants. This clinic will be organized by the athletics association Asterix on the 4th of April.

Furthermore, as last year’s running group was a great success, the BatCie has this year once again come up with some nice challenges to prepare you for the Batavierenrace. You can share your runs, new records or the weekly challenges to motivate each other. Every week a challenge will be posted which you can execute to earn points. Of course there will be a nice prize for the runner who has achieved the most points ;). The first challenge will be posted this week and you can also join the group later.
