You can also register as a team

For sporting companies, fit groups of friends or families there is the option to participate as a team. It's extra fun to run together with colleagues, friends or family, so gather them up and join in.

A team consists of a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 6 participants and may be a mix of both male and female runners of the ages permitted for the relevant distance (see conditions).

The participants of one team must all run the chosen distance. The fastest 4 runners determine the team's outcome. Your company/group of friends/running group can of course participate with multiple teams.

The costs for a team's participation are €50 (for a team in the 5km) or €60 (for a team in the 10km). The first team receives a cup for each distance. You can register for the team run until October 1. You can make changes to a team until October 4. The individual runners of a team will also be included in the regular results.

We look forward to your participation! If you have any questions, please contact us at

Collect your starting number and late registration:

To enrol: You can register online up to an hour before your part. This is easiest at home behind the computer or on your smartphone, and saves a lot of waiting for late registration.

Saturday:  AIf you registered before Wednesday, you can pick up your number at Run2Day between 11:00 AM and 4:00 PM (Overtoom 345-351). We recommend this in connection with the crowds on Sunday at late registration

Sunday: From 8:15 am the COA canteen is open for late registration and collecting numbers. The COA canteen is on the left before the entrance to the athletics track.

T-shirts: Pre-ordered T-shirts can be picked up on Saturdays and Sundays. These can no longer be ordered on the day itself.

Late-registration: We also want to organize late-registration digitally as much as possible (up to half an hour before the start of the component) due to the digital processing of data and payments. Even if you come to do this at Run2Day or in the COA canteen.

Starting number and chip: The starting number also contains the chip, do not lose it along the way, otherwise the finish line will not record your time. You do not have to hand it in and therefore run no risk of incurring costs for loss.

Transport and parking

Due to the large numbers of participants, we recommend that everyone come by bicycle or public transport as much as possible. Parking is still free at the athletics track, but there is little space due to cars from surrounding neighborhoods.

Wardrobe (at your own risk)

You can leave your belongings in a bag at the cloakroom. There is sometimes a queue just before the start, so don’t drop off too late.


We start exactly on time, so be at the right place on time. Check in advance where your start will take place, this varies depending on the distance.

Net times are used, so even if you are at the back of the line, the chip in your starting number measures the time from the moment you cross the starting line.

The 10km start has starting areas.

– The race runners are in the front section

– Behind this there is a starting area with (as much as possible) a pace maker for each expected end time.


At the finish your time will be recorded and shortly afterwards you will receive a reminder and you can get some water. Of course, other drinks are also available upstairs in the canteen.
