What we're about

This a regular social running group that meets in Vondelpark, regularly on Saturday mornings.

We welcome beginners and experienced runners; the only criteria is that you're comfortable jogging a few kilometres. We don't emphasize speed, run at your own pace. It's a social way to keep fit and to meet new people. We always make sure you'll find your way back, preferably joining us at the blauwetheehuis.nl afterwards.

It's not just about the running! It's about that coffee/tea afterwards, too! ;-) Bring a few coins for that (coffee is about €2,60).

WHERE WE MEET, WHAT AND WHEN:

Saturday: in front of the statue, Vondel CS (https://www.google.com/maps/@52.360739,4.874983,3a,75y,32.29h,81.29t/data=!3m5!1e1!3m3!1sxIyBwzFB_NlRzbwHKRm7SQ!2e0!3e5?hl=en)--> please have a look at the map, it'll tell you exactly where we meet.

Saturdays: 09.30hrs/am.
What: Long run, with the fast ones sweeping the ones in the back. Running about 9 to 15 kms/hour. Non-sweepers run about 8,3k / 5 miles. The faster you are, the more you sweep, the more meters you add!

Welcome!

Hi all! The weather is great, it's a beautiful city and it's even prettier when you're running! Everyone's welcome in our group - pace differs between 12k/hour (up to 15!) and about 9 kms. Fear not: you won't get lost. Plus 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. We never leave you wondering where to go! And the faster runners sweep. Where we meet: in front of Vondel CS, Vondelpark 3 gives an odd location on Google Maps, so please click on this link to be sure: where we meet (https://maps.google.nl/maps?q=vondelpark+amsterdam&ll=52.360834,4.874711&spn=0.006788,0.01929&oe=utf-8&client=firefox-a&channel=fflb&fb=1&gl=nl&hq=vondelpark&hnear=0x47c63fb5949a7755:0x6600fd4cb7c0af8d,Amsterdam&cid=0,0,7842025157712464437&t=m&z=16&layer=c&cbll=52.360729,4.874984&panoid=xIyBwzFB_NlRzbwHKRm7SQ&cbp=12,0,,0,0). The Vondelpark entrance opposite the Vondelkerk is thus close, you can already see us from there. We're right next to that little pink statue. Where we go: Vondelpark-Rembrandtpark-Vondelpark (most times), or towards the Olympic Stadium (occasionally). If you'd like to stay for a drink afterwards (at the blauwetheehuis.nl bring some coins, as it's not included :) See you then and there! Sheila and Dave PS There's no storage space that we know of -- take a small backpack or tie a jacket around your waist :-)
