On the first of May 2020 at 22.30 pm, the 48th edition of the Batavierenrace will take place. 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 3.5 km to 10.7 km. Over 350 teams participate in the race, which means more than 8,000 students.
The Batavierenrace is a mixture of a competitive sport-event as well as a big social event. At 22.30 pm on the 1st of May, 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 in Enschede, with over 12,000 visitors! In brief: a great opportunity to be out with your team for a few days and be part of a fantastic event!
Explanation of the Bata: You have to run and bike one round each so it is more fun if you choose a route with a friend. For example, Person 1 has to run from A to B for e.g 5km and Person 2 has to bike next to them. From point B to C, Person 1 has to bike while Person 2 runs e.g 7.5 km.
