Egmond half marathon, Holland

Egmond half marathon, Holland


According to the official website everyone must take part in the "Egmond halve Marathon" (Dutch) at least once in their life. I did for the first time today and the experience was definitely one to remember.

Running for the first 8 km in the sand sounds tough but actually it was a lot of fun and not so tough. What I found tough was running in the sand dunes behind the beach on the way back. The path was very muddy in places and very narrow.

According to Strava I ran 21.4km in 1 hour and 50 minutes. Today was my 3rd half marathon but my first since 2015. I expected to be a little bit faster but I think the soft surface and also my aging body is to blame :(
