Utrecht Science Park Marathon - Register individually or as a team!

Join the fourth Utrecht Science Park Marathon on Sunday 18 March 2018 and get to meet other students or colleagues from other organisations at the Utrecht Science Park. The Utrecht Science Park Marathon start and finish will be located on the Cambridgelaan in De Uithof. The track offers a great combination of both the city (even passing underneath the Dom Tower) and the countryside on the eastern side of Utrecht. 

Students and employees of Utrecht Science Park have the following options:
  • USP Team Run (run with your team 10K ; the four best runners of each team enter the team competition against other teams)  
  • Individual distances (5k, 10k, half or full marathon)


USP Team Run

The USP Team Run is organised especially for staff and students of the organisations at the Utrecht Science Park. You run 10 K in a team of a minimum of four people. In additon to running for your personal best time, you may also become one of the four fastest runners in your team and together enter the wider team competition.  A great sportive challenge! 


If you sign up before 1 December, registration fees are €93 per team. After this date this is €105. So act swiftly and, with your department, association, committee, fellow-students, housemates or colleagues, build a team of 10K runners!  Each team member will get a free T-shirt. Moreover, on 18 March, 2018, the USP Team Runners will be given a special reception with drinks and nibbles at a location near the start/finish. Here you can also make use of the changing rooms and supervised cloakroom. 



Organise a team of at least 4 persons. Your team may consist of runners from one or various organisations. Each team must assign a captain. The captain will be the contact person for the organisation with regard to the registration. 
Relay registration deadline: 18 February 2018.
