Leiden Marathon 14 and 15 May: Free Runner shirt for students and staff

9 May 2022

The Leiden Marathon will take place on Saturday 14 May and Sunday 15 May! With distances from 5k to the full marathon, every runner is welcome on 15 May. On 14 May you can walk the marathon course. You can sign up on the Leiden Marathon website until 11 May.

Free runner shirt

The University Sports Centre (USC) supports students and staff with a free runner shirt. You can pick one up from 9 until 13 May in the USC main building. Check the USC website to find out what you should bring. 

Gathering place for students and staff

There will be a gathering place on the 15th of May at the Plexus Student Centre. From 09:00 onwards, you can use the bathroom, store your bags and pick up your runner shirt (if you haven't already done so). You can also take a shower afterwards and meet other runners. There will be coffee, tea, fruits and sports drinks available. Make sure to bring your LU-Card or LUMC-Card. 

Specials for students

As a student, you will be competing against other students during the Leiden Marathon, as part of the Dutch Student Championship. Be sure to mention that you are a student when signing up, so you will automatically be entered in the championship.

In addition, the USC is offering participating students with a USC year membership a € 5 reimbursement. Read the terms and conditions on the USC website.
