Latest news about the student sports associations and competitions

The MUSST is looking for enthusiastic runners to form the official Maastricht University Team in the Batavierenrace.


The Bata, as this event is also called, is the largest relay race in the world. Normally the team runs from Nijmegen to Enschede, which has a total distance of 175 km. This distance is subdivided into 25 stages. This year, the event will not take place physically, but online, on 23 & 24 April. As the event takes place online, you can join from wherever you are at that moment. Via a tracking app, such as Strava, data will be collected and a ranking will be formed.

Every year Maastricht University will recruit the best runners from Maastricht to form a team. This team then participates in that prestigious University competition with the aim of becoming the best student city in the Netherlands. Moreover, the runners of the UM team can join for free!
