Starting a running team together with your friends, colleagues, neighbours or family members and entering an incredible sports challenge and at the same time making a unique wish come true of a child with a life-threatening disease. That’s where Meerhoven24 and Make-a-Wish stand for.
Meerhoven 24-hour relay race (estafette in Dutch) will take place on 9 and 10 September 2017, with start and finish time at 12:00hrs. A total of 25 teams will participate. The challenge is to make as much as possible rounds in a circuit of 2.2 km through Meerhoven mall and park Meerland.
A team needs to consist of 8 to 12 runners, a team captain and possibly two caregivers. After the team captain has registered and paid, the other team members can register and pay. The team is only confirmed at the time eight members or more have signed and paid. In total there is room for 25 teams, so make sure you apply in time.
They will take very good care of all of the participants during the 24-hour relay. There is a resting place in the adjacent sports hall Hangar, with changing rooms, toilets and showers. A team of professional physiotherapists, first aiders and volunteers are on stand-by, ready to support. In addition to the running event, many activities are organized like games, stalls and entertainment. All proceeds from the 24-hour relay race go to charity: Make-a-Wish.
The idea behind the Meerhoven 24-hour relay race is to get people moving for one another. From the first moment on, all proceeds are donated to Make-A-Wish Foundation Netherlands. In 2017 it will be the seventh time the ‘Estafette’ is taking place.
Meerhoven 24-hour relay race is organized by Meerhoven24 Foundation together with Running Group Meerhoven and founded in 2010. Throughout the year they organise other running events for adults and children like the ultra-run, business-run, performance run and kids run.
