1. Welcome to the coolest team race of Europe: EUROTRIP

The idea is simple. Teams of 6 runners will start in one European city and have to race to another European city, with several mandatory checkpoints on the way!

The race connects runners, cities and Europe as a whole. EuroTrip shows that running is bigger than borders and that team work makes the dream work.

Each team consists of 6 runners and two drivers. Teams are free to switch as much as they want between runners, but with one rule: there is always at least one runner running.

The first edition of EuroTrip will go from Bruges, Belgium to Cologne, Germany. Teams can choose their own route, but have to pass several mandatory checkpoints on the route. The location of the checkpoints will be announced 1 week prior to the race. Total distance will be approximate 400km.

The start and the route

The race will start in Bruges, on Friday June 10th at 23:59 o’clock. The exact start location will be announced 2 weeks prior to the race.

Before the start there will be welcome drinks in a bar where teams can meet each other and do the final race-prep with snacks, food and music. Hanging out with the competition was never better. Half hour before the start we will all walk to the starting line. At exactly one minute to midnight it’s go time! Each team will have one start runner. Then the adventure begins and teams will all find their own way to Cologne.

Rules and safety

Easy does it, EuroTrip has only one rule: every team has to make their way from Bruges to Cologne by foot and pass all the mandatory checkpoints along the way.

To register we have a few requirements: 

  • Every team needs to have 6 runners with a minimum of 2 women per team
  • Each team should have an average HM pace of 1:40. This requirement makes it possible to have all team on time for the after party!

Regarding safety we have a few guidelines:

  • Run safe.
    Do not take highways, wear lights in the dark (front and back!) and bring enough clothing to keep warm (or cool).
  • Drive safe.
    Each team needs to have two drivers so they can take turns and rest while not driving.
  • Navigate safe
    Run with your phone or have a clear course plan to avoid runners getting lost.


To keep EuroTrip unique and special we have limited the amount of teams to 25. Every team needs to have 6 runners with a minimum of 2 women per team. No all-male teams allowed, but we do have an extra price for the first all-female team to finish.

The registration process is easy.

Finish and party

The finish is in Cologne, Germany. The exact finish location will be announced 2 weeks prior to the race. We would love to see teams finish as a team, so with all 6 runners. To make that happen there will be a parking spot next to the finish so everyone can join the last running teammate for the final meters of the race.

We expect all teams to finish on Sunday between 06.00 and 15:00. After finishing you can walk with your team to the event hotel and shower (and nap) before the final party.

The final party is on Sunday evening and is for all runners and drivers. The location is in the city centre of Cologne. Save the last bit of energy you have left to show some moves on the dancefloor and enjoy some welldeserved drinks.

We will post the results on this website. The price ceremony will be held during the afterparty on Sunday evening.
