What is a urban trail you may ask? It is not, for sure, the usual tourist tour you will get in any city you visit. It is a running or walking event in which you can visit different locations of a city.
On 11.11.2018 the first edition of Haarlem Urban Trail will take place. The cost of participating is 25€ and it has included a goodie bag + breakfast. You can enrol for running or walking for the distances of 5 or 10 km. Even if the website is in Dutch, the registration is available for everyone as long as you have a credit card to pay with. On Sunday morning, at 08:00, the event is opening the gate and you can go to pick up the number and your bag. The start is scheduled at 09:30 and there will be multiple waves of starting, depending on the number you’ve got.
Depending on the number of kilometres chosen, the route can change, but these are some highlights of the buildings opening the doors:
- Haarlem Centrum Library
- Pathe Cinema
- Jan en Piet Museum
- Archeological Museum
- Patronaat Concert Hall
- Old Haarlem Town Hall
- Vereenigde Doopsgezinde Church (yes, a church 🙂 )
- and many others, listed here .
