THE RACE COURSE: The translation of “Amsterdamse bos” is “Amsterdam forest”. This is a little bit misleading since it is a park.
The course is all on bike and pedestrian roads with pavement. No gravel or dirt. The course is completely flat with one exception, a climb of 17 meters at 8 kilometers.
Bring Your Own bottle BYO. Holland has one of the best drinking water in the world. It is very safer to drink water from the tap. It is really not necessary to buy bottled or cartons of water in the supermarket. Spa will offer all runners a bottle of water after the run.
Each year WARR makes a significant investment, as well as a major commitment, to ensure that your races are conducted at the highest international standards and in a safe environment. This commitment of excellence includes a well-organized start, a properly marked course, an efficient finish area and accurate results. Please take a few moments and review the following list to ensure that you and your teammates will receive proper finish place, time and hopefully one of the coveted WARR 2019 awards.
To ensure that roads reopen to vehicular traffic at the scheduled times, course time limits will be STRICTLY ENFORCED.
If you are stopping at a water station, move all the way over to the table. Grab water and move away from the table so that others may get water, too. Move to the side if someone behind you says, “Excuse Me” or “Coming Through”.When you are approaching the finish line, you may see loved ones cheering you on. Please do not encourage anyone to join you in the finish line stretch. Your support team is very important, but please communicate that the race course and finish area is for registered participants and staff only.
