On April 29, 2022, the largest relay race in the world will take place again called the Batavierenrace. The 50th edition of the Batavierenrace will start on Friday evening, April 29, 2022. The route runs from the center of Nijmegen, via Germany, the quiet Achterhoek and the Oude Markt in the heart of Enschede to the campus of the University of Twente.

The total running distance is 175 kilometers and is divided into 25 stages.

This is the biggest event of the year and is also the most fun! And afterwards there is always a big party at the end at the University of Twente.

The nice thing about this relay race is that you are incontrol of the distance you run with your team. So you can either choose to run a short distance or a longer one. The more people that sign up, the shorter the distance you have to run.
