All sorts of enjoyable and entertaining arrival festivities are organised by volunteer committees along the Roparun route. For the participants these arrival festivities are a welcome boost during the hundreds of kilometres that they must cover. To acknowledge the arrival festivities the participants vote on the best arrival activity for the ‘Roparunner City of the Year’ prize. The winning municipality receives 45.000 euros to devote to a cause that falls within the Roparun objective; second place receives 22.500 euros and third place, 12.500 euros. We also have an Incentive award, given to the arrival showing great promise, 7.500 euros.
The Roparun foundation supports all local volunteer committees, which is why we’re organising special volunteer commitee assemblies anually. During these assemblies we want to exchange tips and tricks, talk about changes and updates and more.
To sign up as an official Roparun arrival, or if you have any questions regarding, you can send an email to Marianne Varekamp (Volunteer Coordinator) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
