We’re happy to announce that we’re working together with Giro5050 and USLAS ATLAS on two fundraising events taking place May 10th and 11th. Read along to find out more about the events. We’d love to see you around!

USLAS ATLAS – Batavierenrace 2019

On May 10th and May 11th, the Dutch annual ‘Batavierenrace’ will take place. A relay race over a track of 175km where over 8500 students compete. Student organisation Atlas is joining with a team of 25 students and this year, they chose to support Women Skate the World with a fundraiser linked to the relay race.

The event starts on May 10th with entertainment and activities in the city of Nijmegen. In the evening the first runners will start off, shifting positions with their teammates throughout the different stages in the night. The finish is scheduled around 16:00 on May 11th in Enschede. When all contestants have finished it’s time for a close-off party.
