The SurvivalStrijd (“Survival Battle”) is a survival run hosted by members of Student Outdoor Sports Association Slopend in Delft each year in May. The course is straight across (and around) the TU Delft campus! Aside from hosting a beautiful run with unique scenery for contestants from all across the Netherlands, the purpose of the SurvivalStrijd is to show TU Delft students why the survival run sport is so much fun.
When participating in the SurvivalStrijd this year, you can choose between three categories: 5.5km, 5.5km PLUS and 9km. For more information on the categories, you can go to the page Categories.
The SurvivalStrijd in 2020 takes place on Saturday May 9th.
What is a survival run?
A survival run is a competition where the goal is to complete a course with obstacles as fast as possible. The obstacles can range from rope climbing to kayaking and about everything in between.
What should I wear?
Sports clothing that you don’t mind getting a bit dirty is fine. A (running) tight is ideal, though other full-length sports pants are okay as well. Shorts are not advised given the rope based obstacles. We will provide you with a beautiful T-shirt with your starting number.
What prizes can I win?
The top 3 (guys and gals) of both categories of the 9km run will win something special. For the 5.5km the fastest group, the group with the best outfit and the fastest guy and gal will also win something cool. In the newest category, the 5.5km PLUS, a price will be given to the fastest duo or individual.
Will there be other activities after I finished the run?
Straight after the run, a hot tub will be waiting for you to take a plunge. After you’re all cleaned up, you can get something to eat and drink next to the start/finish.
Sounds great! Where do I sign up?
