What is Slopend?

Student Outdoor Sports Association Slopend (S.B.V. Slopend) was started in 2007 by two students who wanted to exercise the survival sport. Since Delft did not have an outdoor sports association at that time and the sports center also did not offer such a sport, it was decided to set up an association. On May 8, 2009 Slopend was officially founded.


Since it was founded, Slopend has been growing association. Four board members and seven committees contribute to the development of the obstacle course, the training sessions, activities, weekend trips and everything else connected to the association.


Since it was founded, Slopend has been a growing association with three ‘pillars’:

  • The survivalrun sport
  • Expeditions: backpacking abroad
  • Bushcraft: surviving minimalistically in the wilderness

Aside from this we love all physical activities (bouldering, mountainbiking) as well as less strenuous social gatherings (drinks, barbeques). Our four board members, seven committees and trainers all contribute to make this possible.
