The Roparun is a relay race over more than 500 kilometres from Paris and Hamburg to Rotterdam where people, in teams, provide a performance to raise money for people with cancer.
The Roparun is also an adventure for life. This is demonstrated by the motto: "Aiming to add life to the days that remain, when no more days can be added to life". The past 24 races of the Roparun have raised more than 67 million Euros for people with cancer.
After 48 hours of participation, the finale on the Coolsingel in Rotterdam’s city centre is the pinnacle of achievement for the participants.
