Genetwister Runners joined the Veluweloop 2019

On Saturday 12th of October, a team of runners from Genetwister have joined the Veluweloop 2019. This is a relay race of 85,6 km, which runs along a beautiful route over the Veluwe. In preparation, the team has been training several times a week for the last few months to get ready for this event. The weather, which was as expected from Dutch autumn, made the tracks in the forest extra exciting but didn’t stop the team from finishing the race in 8 hours and 6 minutes. Besides a sportive activity, this was also a great team building exercise! The Veluweloop will take place next year on 10 October 2020. Perhaps as a company we will once again participate again in the most natural relay race in the Netherlands!
