The organisation of the NN Marathon Rotterdam has chosen a new date for the NN Rotterdam Marathon: Sunday, October 25. The Erasmus Charity Run, for students, staff and alumni of EUR, will also take place that day.

Every runner with a place in the full marathon as well as the ¼ marathon will be able to use their place in the rescheduled event.

All participants of the Erasmus Charity Run will receive an email of the NN Rotterdam Marathon organisation with relevant information soon. Students, employees and alumni of EUR who didn’t register for the Erasmus Charity Run yet, now have the chance to still register via the website:

Let's collect a record amount together for our common goal: as many scholarships as possible for talented young people who do not have sufficient financial means to study at Erasmus University Rotterdam!

Erasmus Charity Run 2020 - Join us on Sunday 5th of April

The Erasmus Charity Run is a special part of the official Rotterdam Marathon #DEMOOISTE.  Participants may run the 10.55-kilometre marathon or the 42.195-kilometre marathon. Students, academics and staff may join the Erasmus Charity Run of Erasmus University Rotterdam. An unforgettable experience, and for a good cause.

The Erasmus Charity Run is a great example of an initiative of Erasmus University that aims to create social impact. Runners at the Charity Run raise funds for scholarships. This way, talented but disadvantaged students are enabled to pursue academic studies. 

Run for scholarships

Together, we donate our time and energy to raise money for as many scholarships as possible, during this special charity run. The Erasmus Charity Run is more than just a fundraiser. It also encourages students and staff to contribute to the community, through sports. Besides, an international group of students delivers a voluntary contribution to the organisation of the Rotterdam Marathon.

The Erasmus Charity Run takes place on Sunday, the 5th of April 2020. Participants of Erasmus University depart from Erasmus University College to the start line. The first edition of Erasmus Charity Run was held five years ago, during the 100th year anniversary.
