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 (only for runners of 1/4 marathon)

You can take part in the Erasmus Charity Run 2023 in the following distances: 1/4 marathon (10.5 km) and the whole marathon (42.195 km).

This year, Marathon Rotterdam celebrates already her 42nd edition. Also this year, we will ask you to raise €40 per person at a minimum for scholarships for students who otherwise can't study at Erasmus University of Rotterdam. To help you to raise sponsor money we will create the sponsorpage for you, after you received an email where you can change your password, you are ready to go! Customise your sponsorpage and start raising €40 in sponsor money! Get your parents, brothers, sisters, cousins, fraternity/sonority or fellow committee members to sponsor you, and together we aim to raise a spectacular amount to make dreams come true for students who would really love to study at Erasmus University Rotterdam!

See the 'Donate' page for more information.

Registrations for the Erasmus Charity Run will be open around the end of November 2022.
