Successful first edition Life Science Run

Successful first edition Life Science Run


Last Saturday, October 19th, the Life Science Run was organized for the first time in Wageningen. About a hundred participants ran through the beautiful Binnenveld with its vast fields and on the roads flanked by oak trees. Both the start and the last kilometre took place on the Wageningen University and Research campus, with a finish on the athletics track at the Bongerd Sports Centre. In this way, the university was well promoted. A little bit of sunshine and not much wind ensured fast times on the flat course.

The male and female students competed among each other for the titles of Dutch student champion on the road on both the 5 and the 10 kilometres. This year, Nijmegen joined with a strong team and won all the titles. The silver and bronze medals were divided among different student cities. See below the link to the full results, also for the non-NSK categories.

The organization can look back on a successful first edition of the Life Science Run. We are pleased with the more than 100 subscriptions and the large group of enthusiastic volunteers who made this event possible. We would also like to thank the sponsors for their financial and material support. We would like to mention in particular: Physiotherapy centre M-Visio, AH to go, Runnersworld Ede – Bussem – Lelystad, Wageningen University and Research and De Vlaamsche Reus.

Thanks a lot to all the participants, volunteers, organization and sponsors and we may see you next year!
