Oktober review

By: Laurens Zureiqi, at 31-10-2023 at 22:03

In October, the running lights were taken out again and the track lights turned on, but that didn't stop Vitalists from training: in addition to the great turnout at the workouts, the Tuesday night dinner was still busy, even requiring a separate cooking crew. Vitalists did not have to be bored in the 10th month of the year in addition to the weekly workouts: there were plenty of social activities to enjoy.

The month began with the judges' barbecue where all Vitalists who had judged last year were put in the spotlight. A week later it was time for the 4Mile of Groningen, where we of course colored the streets blue and where a number of Vitalists beat Arjen Robben and Erben Wennemars. There was also a lot of fun at the Halloween drink, where the winner of the drink classification was also announced: Inge, congratulations! Moreover, we were present in large numbers at the V-party with Vijfje, Verakles, Vitalis and Veracket.

For the Vitalist who like to combine drinking and running, an ideal race was scheduled: the Biermijl in Delft. A group of Vitalists were at the start here. After a drizzly evening, Finn was awarded the bronze medal with a time of 6.06!

For the freshmen, a game night was organized in the cafeteria which of course ended at the Tram with a successful music bingo. Not only the FreshmenCie was active in October, the RoadCie also got to work: the AV-Run was again a great success. The members of the WegCie turned out to be able to run as well: on a rainy Tuesday evening Evelien and Bouwe (short cross) and Eleonore and Luuk (long cross) took the titles at the club championships cross.

All in all, October was another sporty and fun month in which we did not have to be bored.

Monthly overview September

By: Roos Spierings, at 13-10-2023 at 22:23

September is always a wonderful month at Vitalis. It is the time when our members return to the athletics track to resume their training sessions, and where prospective members join to discover what we have to offer. This year was no exception. With 61 prospective members divided into technical and running groups, they got to know Vitalis better both athletically and socially. Four training sessions were set up, each exploring a new aspect within athletics, and two social evenings were organised.  This started with a competitive `running drink`, where we organised some fun games, followed by an exciting pub quiz in the Tram. We also held a football tournament and ended the day with a delicious barbecue.The best news is that as many as 50 new members joined our club, and even more remarkable is how actively many of them are involved in our community. Our weekly Tuesday evening meal after training is well attended, and our trainers have their hands full mentoring these new athletes. Moreover, many of them have become active by joining various committees.

Of course, the annual association weekend could not be missed. On the Veluwe, in colourful underwater outfits, we enjoyed sports activities, funny games and making new friendships. It was a great party where there was little sleeping and sometimes a little too much drinking. In short, a great weekend!

Besides the introductory period, we also had two important competitions in September: the NSK Tams and the Club Championships track. The NSK Teams is one of the biggest student championships in the Netherlands, with more than two hundred athletes competing on our track. The event was a great success, where personal records and heat records abounded. Recently, the club track championships also took place, where Vitalis' best all-around competitors were honoured. Carlo and Evelien went home with the well-deserved titles. Congratulations! 

To finish, I would like to wish you lots of fun and success at Vitalis, and I hope you will continue to follow and discover your passion for athletics during the coming period!

KEI week 2023

By: Laurens Zureiqi, at 14-08-2023 at 00:25

The coming week it's time again for KEI week! During the introduction period of Groningen, Vitalis will again do everything possible to be clearly visible. We will do this for example by our tent at the information market on Monday between 10 and 17 and of course at the sports market between 13:00 and 18:00. At the latter you as a KEI runner also have a chance to win a free 1 semester membership with our association! Who wouldn't want that? Of course you have to prove that you can jump far in the long jump pit at the ACLO, but you don't mind doing that, do you? Finally, we end this probably unhealthy week with a leisurely run on Friday morning at 11:30 at the brakke brunch run. Here you can run off all the calories from the past few days and then make your hangover completely disappear with a delicious brunch. Sign up via this link!

We hope to see you at the KEI week!
