Utrecht Urban Trail
The KLM Utrecht Urban Trail run will be held on Sunday, 22 March. A very special running experience, taking you past and through some of the city’s coolest buildings. It’s a voyage of discovery combining sport, culture and architecture.

The course takes you past (or even through) Every some unique urban locations, buildings and places of historical interest where people normally don’t set foot – at least not in running shoes. It is suitable for people of all ages and the focus is on experiencing a city environment. And a free breakfast will be served to all the participants after the finish.
The Hague Urban Trail will be held as of 9.30 hrs. on Sunday, 22 March starting at Mariaplaats
Participants will start in 5 ‘start waves’ from 9.30 to 10.50 hrs. with a break in between each one, so that everyone can run comfortably along the narrower streets, up and down steps and through buildings. Breakfast is held on the Hofplaats until 13.00 hrs.
The registration fee is € 26,50 including breakfast and you can register online (in Dutch).
