The Batavierenrace

Every year in April or May, it is time for the largest relay race in the world: the Batavierenrace. 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 walking distance is more than 175 kilometers and is divided into 25 stages (16 men’s and 9 women’s stages). About 8,500 athletes participate each year, all students; It is to this enormous number of participants that the Batavierenrace can be found in the Guinness Book of Records for several years now.


In short, an annual event with a unique character: a mixture of top sport and toiling recreation!


The Batavierenrace has become a household name in recent years, certainly in the student world, but also beyond. The Batavierenrace is therefore a unique and fun event that deserves to be in the spotlight. In previous years, reports about the Batavierenrace were broadcast by regional and national radio and television broadcasters and the race is featured annually in De Gelderlander and many other printed media.


After the finish of the Batavierenrace around 6 p.m., the largest student party in the Benelux takes place every year on the campus of the University of Twente in Enschede. It is estimated that 13,000 students are going crazy in various locations of the campus! The organization of the party is in the hands of the Events Office of the University of Twente.
