Hi all!

It's a beautiful city and it's even prettier when you're running!

Everyone's welcome in our group - general pace is about 10,5k/hour. Some of us run for an hour, some are training for ultra runs. Fear not: we start in the Vondelpark so you won't get lost. And it means you can build up your speed/fitness level if needed. So if you're worried you can't keep up: just come around and give it a go. Also, I'll try and get the 'Broom Sweeping' back in order ;-)

Where we meet: the Eye Film Museum isn't at Vondelpark 3 anymore, but it's where we meet (Vondelpark entrance Vondelkerk is thus close, you can already see us from there.)

Where we go: As we start in the Vondelpark, you can choose to do the shortest lap: 3.3km. The group's first lap will quite often be Vondelpark-Rembrandtpark-Vondelpark = 10k max. Depending on who's attending, we'll do one or two more laps after that, or a 800 meter extension, or you just join the ultra runners...

At some point, we might start running towards Nieuwe Meer again, or Schellingwoude.

If you'd like to stay for a drink afterwards (at the Blauwe Theehuis), bring some coins, as it's not included :)

See you then and there!

PS We're looking for someone to host the Tuesday group.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
