Get to know the organising committee of 2023 with the slogan "get ready to race the wolf!"
Hey sports enthusiasts!
I am Kaat, and I am proud to say that I am the chairperson of the Veluweloop Committee 2023. Among my friends, I am mostly known as the person who is always involved in sports. I have to admit that it's not entirely untrue. You can often find me at WOEST, the survival run association. Besides that, I always enjoy playing a game of tennis, and I am also a tennis coach. And, of course, I love going for a run as well. Apart from all the sports activities, I am studying Soil, Water, and Atmosphere in Wageningen and I am also actively involved in my study association, Pyrus. I am already excited to make the Veluweloop an even bigger success this year! I hope you are looking forward to it too!
My name is Martine, I am 19 years old, and this year, as the secretary, I will contribute to organizing another amazing Veluweloop! I participated for the first time last year, and I had a great time, so I want to continue that experience! Currently, I am a first-year biology student at WUR, and when the weather is nice, you can find me on the tennis courts at Walhalla when I am not out running. I enjoy doing things with other people, and I am always open to trying something new. Also, if I can find the time, I love playing the piano. I really enjoy sports and being outdoors in nature, so the Veluweloop is perfect in that regard. We are going to make it a great spectacle this year, and I hope to see you all on October 14th!
Hello sports enthusiasts,
My name is Pepijn van Hees, I am 22 years old, and I am a first-year student in the Master's program in Resilient Agriculture and Food Systems. I am proud to introduce myself as the treasurer of this wonderful committee this year. As the treasurer, I am responsible for the financial aspects of the Veluweloop. Additionally, I will contribute in any way possible. I participate in various sports, enjoy nature, and am usually found with friends and family. The combination of sports, nature, and socializing is what attracts me to the Veluweloop. Together, we will ensure a spectacular Veluweloop on October 14th. I hope to see all of you there!
My name is Anna, I am 21 years old, and I am currently pursuing a Master's degree in Nutrition and Health. In this 41st year of the Veluweloop, I will serve as the Commissioner of Sponsorship and Commissioner of Publicity. Although I have never participated before, I am really looking forward to organizing this event with our fantastic board. I personally enjoy running in the beautiful surroundings of Wageningen. In addition to running, I play tennis and engage in other sports whenever I have the opportunity. I hope that we can once again organize a magnificent event this year, and I can't wait to see everyone there. Best regards,
Dear Veluweloop participant,
I am Jelle, and this year I am the Commissioner of the Race, and I also fulfil the role of Commissioner of Staff. In addition to my studies in BSc Food Technology, where I am in my third year, I enjoy running in the forests around Wageningen, or hopping on my road bike or mountain bike to explore nature, often with the goal of discovering new areas in the beautiful surroundings of Wageningen!
After participating in both the Batavierenrace and the Veluweloop last year, I realized that I am fascinated by these kinds of events, and I wanted to be part of the Veluweloop board in 2023!
I hope to see you all in October as participants, staff members, or spectators, so that together we can make the 41st Veluweloop a great success!
