Do-group competition

The Kick-In has just ended and is still fresh in everyone’s memory. Everyone had a lot of fun, including during the “Bestorming van de Bastille”. But did you think it was a pity that no time was recorded during the “Bestorming”? Could you not measure your performance well against that of other do-groups or are you looking for a good time for a reunion? Then participate in the Campus Obstacle Run do-group competition!

If at least 4 people from your do-group sign up (and you state the name of your do-group and the fact that you are a do-group in the comments) then you also participate in this battle. Here you can measure yourself against the other do-groups and show that your do-group is really the best! Of course, as a do-group you still participate for the fastest time of all groups, so you can win two prizes. And because everyone is a student, you benefit from the student rate of € 9.00. Register now by clicking on “Subscribe” under the heading “Participants” in the menu at the top of the page.

How do you start well prepared for the Campus Obstacle Run?

If you’ve never run an obstacle run before, it might look like a big challenge at first. That’s what it is for the untrained person. That is why we have listed a number of tips so that you can start the Campus Obstacle Run optimally prepared! All these tips are put into practice every Wednesday at the training of D.S.S.V. Tartaros. For personal guidance during this training, you are welcome to come by 3 times every Wednesday at 20:00. During this training, we will provide strength and technique training for 1.5 hours, after which you can complete the run without worry. We assemble at the main entrance of the sports centre (which is located on the east side) at the University of Twente.


In general, close-fitting stretch clothing is worn during a survival/obstacle run. Preferably clothing that does not retain much moisture, because you will get wet during the run and if the clothing retains too much water you cool quickly. The standard equipment consists of trail shoes, socks over the ankles, a tight, a thermal shirt with long sleeves and a t-shirt over it. Of course, it is also possible to wear other clothes, but make sure that you put on long pants and that you wear multiple layers, regardless of the weather. Keep in mind that people are running off-road and that this makes walking harder than normal. Finally, it is wise to take a plastic/garbage bag with you to store your dirty things afterwards.
