Taking part in the Erasmus Charity Run means challenging yourself during one of the biggest one-day sports events in the Netherlands, right in the heart of Rotterdam. As you run, you'll be cheered on by wildly enthusiastic spectators, from start to finish. An experience you'll never forget!

And if that isn't enough motivation to take part, what about these bonuses:

  • You can take part in the marathon for a reduced price.
  • You receive an Erasmus Charity Run sports T-shirt.
  • Before the start, you can store your valuables at Erasmus University College.

You can take part in the Erasmus Charity Run in the following distances: 1/4 marathon (10.5 km) and the whole marathon (42.195 km).

This year, extra focus will be placed on raising money for the Erasmus Scholarship Fund to celebrate Erasmus University's 105th anniversary! For that reason, we are asking you to create your own sponsor page and raise €105 in sponsor money! Get your parents, brothers, sisters, cousins, fraternity/sonority or fellow committee members to sponsor you, and together we aim to raise the spectacular sum of €105,000!

See the 'Donate' page for more information. When you register, use the promotional code 'CHARITYRUN2019'.


Unfortunately it is not possible anymore to register for the Run. Will we see you on the 7th of April to cheer on all runners?
