Preliminary results 49th Batavierenrace

Dear team leaders, runners and beer lovers of the 49th Bata,

The Batavierenrace is over! Hopefully you all ran your best time and especially enjoyed this weekend very much.

Here you can find an overview with all results, excluding the disapproved results.

All disapproved results of your team can be found on online.batavierenrace. If there are disapproved results, you can submit a resubmission for each disapproved result until Sunday, April 25, 23:59. You do this by sending the correct result to online@batavierenrace.nl.

In this mail the name of the runner and the name of the team must be mentioned and a screenshot must be added showing the elapsed time, distance and route.  

A rejected result could possibly be due to one of the following reasons:
- The displayed time is about the movement time and not the elapsed time
(this is the most common reason).

- Stages recorded with the app Runkeeper will be rejected for the above reason.
To solve this you can upload the stage from Runkeeper to Strava. This requires a Strava account, which you can create once if needed and then delete again. The way to do this is described on this website. These steps must be done on the websites (it can't be done through the apps) of Runkeeper and Strava. At the end it says to upload the zip file to Strava; Strava may not accept this, you will need to upload the gpx file from the zip file. 

- The stage was submitted for two different teams;

- A runner submitted two results for the same team;

- The data submitted does not match the screenshot provided.

Please check the above points before resubmitting the stage. It is also possible that the result was rejected for another reason than mentioned above. If this is not clear, you can also send an email to online@batavierenrace.nl, then we will look into it.

Even if you have no rejected results it is good to check everything, because we can also make mistakes.

If you have already sent an email to online@batavierenrace.nl about a rejected result you can ignore this mail, we have received all mails and will handle them as soon as possible.

The final results will be published on Wednesday, April 28th.

Enjoy the party! And till next year!!

Submitting your results

Results can be submitted via online.batavierenrace.nl.

When submitting the results, you will be asked for the elapsed time, not the running time. We have noticed that not all running apps (e.g. Runkeeper) display this by default. Please check this before you start! The website contains instructions on how to display this in Strava.

Unique team codes!
Each team member can submit their result in the "individual" menu. However, a unique team code is needed to do this! These codes have been shared with your team captain in the latest team leaders letter sent on April 20th.

It would be nice if everyone could submit their results after the run so we have enough time to check all the data in time. In addition, we can then provide you with a live ranking!

We wish everyone good luck and, above all, lots of fun!

Update on the shape of the 49th Bata

Dear all,

Yesterday the organization of the Batavierenrace discussed the possibility of physical stages during the upcoming Batavierenrace.
Unfortunately, we had to make the decision that the 49th Batavierenrace will be an online event without physical stages.

The corona measures are currently too strict to get a permit for a Batavierenrace with physical stages on April 23 and 24.
In addition, we as organizing committee think that we can organize the best possible Batavierenrace for you if we focus on an online race.

We will continue to do our utmost to make it an amazing event!!!

The 49th Organisation Committee

Registrations are opening!

Dear participants, team leaders, volunteers, beer drinkers and other interested people,

The past few weeks have been special for all of us and we obviously get a lot of questions about what the Bata will look like this year. The short answer: we don't know yet. With constantly changing measures, it is almost impossible for us to say now what the event will look like.

That there will be a Bata on 23 and 24 April is certain. We will do our best, in accordance with the measures, to be able to physically organize as much of this as possible. As a backup plan we can, similar to last year, hold an online event. February 11, we as an organization will make the decision, and you will hear from us the same day.

February 13 registrations will open!!! How to register can be found on the socials and website by then.

So keep 23 and 24 April free, put your team together and make it something beautiful. Take care and see you then!

The 49th Organizing Committee


Dear team leaders, runners and beer drinkers,

The past few weeks we have received a lot of emails about the registrations of the 49th Batavierenrace. It brings us as the organization joy to see that there is always so much interest in the Batavierenrace. Behind the scenes we are working hard to organize a fantastic race. However, due to the measures concerning the Corona crisis, there is still too much uncertainty at this moment about the number of participants we are allowed to admit. The entries for the 49th Batavierenrace will therefore open later than normal. Our goal is to allow all teams to participate, so keep at least April 23rd and 24th free in your calendar! Keep an eye on our site and the socials for more information.

With sportive greetings,

The 49th Organizing Committee

The 49th Batavierenrace
