Important participant information for the Univé FitRUN 5 km

Start time Univé 5 km FitRUN
10:15 AM Univé 5 km FitRUN (start/finish: Boulevard 1945)

Starting corrals IMPORTANT!!!
The starting corrals are located at the Mooienhof at the beginning of the Boulevard. Due to the high number of participants in the full and half marathons, we have created a special Univé 5 km gathering corral on the Kuipersdijk. Coming from the direction of the Van Heekplein, you will see the gathering corral marked with a large arc. Please be in this gathering corral at least 10 minutes before the start.

NOTE: at 10:00 AM, thousands of full and half marathon runners will start first. You will start as a participant of the Univé FitRUN 5 km directly afterwards. The gathering corral will be OPENED AT THE FRONT around 10:05 AM to facilitate a smooth flow directly to the starting corrals at the Mooienhof. Follow the instructions of our volunteers!

Pick up bib number and Runners Expo
You can pick up your bib number and any extras you have ordered (such as the Enschede Marathon Runningshirt, Running socks, and BibBits) on Saturday, April 20th from 11:00 AM – 5:00 PM and on Sunday, April 21st from 7:30 AM until one hour before the start at Saxion University of Applied Sciences, located at M.H. Tromplaan 28. Please note: your bib number will not be sent to you by mail! You can find your bib number in the Enschede Marathon Tracking app and on the participant lists displayed at the registration office.

On Saturday, April 20th, the Runners Expo will be taking place simultaneously at Saxion: get informed about sports and running-related products and services.

The distance from Saxion University of Applied Sciences to the start is about 1 km. Here you can find the route from the registration office to the starting corrals.

Enschede Marathon Tracking app
Follow your favorite participants live with the Enschede Marathon Tracking app. This way, you will know exactly when someone starts, where they are on the course, and when they finish. Handy for you and your supporters! In the app, you will find your own performance, start lists, the latest news and updates, the results, and more!

Medical passport
There is space on the back of your bib number to fill in your medical passport. If there is anything medically important that we need to know, we kindly ask you to fill this out.

Pick up bib number for someone else
You can pick up the bib number for a running buddy. Make sure to have a screenshot of the bib number in the Enschede Marathon Tracking app.

During the Enschede Marathon, the city is less accessible than usual. Keep in mind that you will need more time to get from A to B and that there are walking routes you must follow. Using the maps on the website, we will assist you in finding the right route to be on time in the starting corral.

The timekeeping for all distances is done using a chip attached to the back of the bib number. Always wear your start number on your chest, not on your back!

The time limit for completing the Univé 5 km FitRUN is 45 minutes.
