The student athletics association Uros (‘Unidentified Running ObjectS’) was founded in 1991. Gradually, the association has grown to one of the biggest student sports associations in Maastricht.
During the year, Uros participates in several (inter)national competitions. There is something for everyone: runners can join in events like the National student championship (NSK) Ekiden (marathon distance run by a team of 6 runners), NSK road or NSK cross, the Zevenheuvelenloop, Hart van Brabantrace or Batavierenrace, as well as the numerous local competitions organized around Maastricht. For technical athletes, there is also enough choice: NSK track, NSK indoor, and NSK teams as competitions for Atletiek Maastricht. Uros also shows up at some international competitions, for example in London, Paris or Budapest, which is always a lot of fun. This is central to Uros: having fun, both at practices and outside.
Every month, Uros organizes several activities such as a beer tasting, a pool night, an evening float fit, a dinner at the track, or special activities such as a New Year’s dinner or a members weekend. In addition, a drink with other student sports associations takes place monthly, organized by Student Sports Activity Committee (SSAC). Due to the relatively small number of members, the group is quite close, but we are always open to new members: the more the merrier!
