Lecture: 'Get Ready!'

Please note that the lecture is in Dutch only

On Wednesday, April 17th, the Enschede Marathon weekend begins with an engaging lecture, in collaboration with the University of Twente and Roessingh R&D. Annually, we share knowledge from science in an accessible and approachable manner through this event.

This year, the Get Ready! seminar will take place once again. Learn from top speakers about how to improve your performance as a runner, even shortly before the race. We help you achieve your goals, regardless of the distance you run, whether it’s 5 or 42 kilometers. Discover how science is applied in sports by triathlete and researcher Bouke Scheltinga. He shares insights on training load and how data from smartwatches and running apps can enhance your performance. Michel Boeting, board member of Enschede Marathon and manager of international athletes, provides a behind-the-scenes look at international athletics and highlights the elite field of the marathon. Additionally, he is happy to share the latest tips he always gives to his athletes, including essential strategies for a successful race such as maintaining an optimal pace during the competition. As the icing on the cake, sports psychologist Britt de Kroon from Pro-F will take you into the intriguing world of mental factors that can be addressed before and during a competition. Discover how to prepare yourself before the race and what tactics you can use to stay motivated and achieve your performance goals.
