Bos en Vallei Circuit (BVC)
The Forest and Valley Circuit is a cross running competition in the area of Wageningen. It’s organised by the athletics associations, but also really nice for us to participate! The track is mostly mud-sand-based through the forest and valleys. You’re forced to run really fast. Subscription is only 10 euros for 4 crosses in Veenendaal, Rhenen, Wageningen and Ede. The first BVC is 26th of October in Veenendaal, so sign up soon!
More information and subscription: https://www.bvccircuit.nl/bvc/deelname/

We start sometime during the training of Tuesday Januari 14. We will end around 23:00 in the city center of Wageningen, so please take a proper bike and lights. So come to training and join!
Sign up here, so we can prepare some food, drinks and activities for you!

Ultra Survivalrun July 10-12
The Ultra Survivalrun is ultra because it takes 3 days! In a team of 7, 10 survivalruns need to be runned with 4 teammembers. This means 3 members can rest one lap, while one person needs to do two runs in a row! Next to survivalrunning, also mountainbiking and canoeing are on list of activities. It’s kind of a mix between survivalrun and adventure race. We try to form a WOEST team, so please let the board know if you’re interested.
There’s not a lot information online, only a facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/usr2020/
Orienteering is a running competition without a clear road. Just use a map and a compass to find your way to the finish.
