Artevelde UAS kicks off spring with Campus Run on 30 March

Loop mee met de campusrun

Get those dusty running shoes out of the closet and warm up your muscles: our Campus Run is back! The route of this third edition takes you through a few of our Artevelde campuses and the lovely Ghent city centre. Young or not, couch potato or marathon champion? Everybody is welcome!

Three routes through Ghent

We welcome all athletic Ghentians, students, and everyone who likes running. There are three possible routes: a kid run for 8- to 12-year olds of 1.5 kilometers, a route of 5 kilometers along three campuses, and a 10 km-route along and through five campuses. The start and finnish of all routes is on campus Stropkaai.

Fun run

To give everyone a chance to participate, we have an afternoon and an evening edition on 30 March. You can start every 15 minutes, between 14:30 and 16:00 in the afternoon, and between 17:30 and 19:30 in the evening. The kids run begins at 14:00. There is no time registration, so no need to rush to get to the finnish. Relax, enjoy the atmosphere, the enthusiasm of your fellow runners and supporters, and the unique spots in the city you may have never seen before ...


You pay 2 euro to participate. All proceeds go to KAA Gent Foundation.
