Trail - RUN Winschoten

The 50 km, 100 km and 10 x 10 relay are run on a 10 km course through Winschoten and Heiligerlee. The course was measured with the Jones Counter and therefore meets the conditions for Dutch, European and World records. The route is completely traffic-free. Where necessary, the course is closed off with crowd barriers and around 75 traffic controllers ensure the safety of the participants. The trail is not suitable for wheelers. The wheelers can participate in the funRUN on Friday evening.
