Third place was the most the athletes of Tartlétos could manage in this year’s Veluweloop relay race. They were the fastest student team though.
Aeolus, with ex-students from Enschede, made off with the trophy once again. By a little more than three minutes, the runners of Tartlétos students' athletics club came in third, with a total time of five hours and over eleven minutes. VHL student Nout Jansen was the only member of the team to achieve the fastest time in a lap. Bringing up the rear among the student teams was SSR-W student society. They took almost eight hours to cover the eleven laps.
Fewer teams than last year took part in this 31 st edition of the race. There were 77 teams in total. 'We had a few cancellations at the last minute due to illness and injury', says Hoevers.
