What is surivalrun?

Survivalrun is a sport for people that love being outside and enjoy challenging themselves. During a survivalrun you cover a route through forests and fields while being treated to wonderful (natural) obstacles to conquer. Think of rope climbing and many creative varieties to that, but also carrying logs (and chopping them up!), wading/swimming through water, climbing nets, swinging over canals, shooting a bow and canoeing. The aim is to cover the distance as quickly as possible while overcoming all the obstacles. These survivalruns take place throughout the year and throughout the country, check here to get an idea!

What is WOEST?

WOEST stands for Wageningen Outdoor En Survivalrun Team. We are a student survivalrun association, one of the many sports associations that is a part of Sports foundation SWU Thymos, as well as Sports Centre the Bongerd. Our track is located at SCB the Bongerd, right next to the WUR campus, where we train twice a week and offer trainings for both beginners and advanced survivalrunners. During a WOEST training, explanation of techniques is alternated with climbing, running and exercises. In this way you train your condition, strength and endurance, all on your own level and together with other WOESTelingen. Besides the trainings, WOEST is an active association with social activities like campfire drinks and exchanges with other sports. Check out our about WOEST  page for more information and training times and don’t hesitate to ask us any questions or just send an e-mail to woest@wur.nl to join us at the obstacle course some time!
