The runners and cyclists will follow the route to get to the finish location.
After the end-time registration they will walk the last part to the ceremonial finish on the Binnenrotte.
The other team members may park their vehicles at the Vijfsluizen area in Schiedam. From here it is easy to take the metro to the Blaak stop, which is practically at the finish location. A separate route description to and from Vijfsluizen will be provided at a later time.
For family and friends who want to come to the finish location, further information will be available on the following page: roparun.nl/ spectators.

Our ambassador, Dutch and world champion athlete Nelli Cooman, has offered to help teams with their campaigns wherever possible. You can submit a request to this effect four weeks before your team campaign, via firstname.lastname@example.org. Indicate when and where the campaign or promotion is taking place and how Nelli could help you (for example, firing the starting shot for a sponsored run, giving an opening speech during a benefit evening, or awarding a prize to the winners of a hexathlon). Two weeks before the campaign Nelli will let you know whether she is able to support you with it.
The cost for registration is € 3,050 per team, or for the half Roparun € 1,900. This amount must be paid to Ropament B.V. (100% subsidiary of the Roparun Foundation), which is responsible for the organisation of the event. This amount is used to organise the event for all participants, e.g. locations, sanitary facilities, traffic, permits, security, communication and more.
Every team is obliged to raise money for charity. This is also arranged by selling a minimum amount of € 2,500 in raffle tickets (1,000 items) per team. This amount will be transferred directly to the Roparun Foundation. The foundation ensures that the money is spent on charities that fall within Roparun’s mission. Alongside raffle-ticket sales, each team is free to organise campaigns and promotions, collections, events and such to raise the highest possible amount for the charity!
