WHY RUN?

Corona has made us sit inside, locked down between the four walls of our houses. I’m fed up with this claustrophobic feeling of being unfree. I want to break free and run away from boredown.

Hence I came up with the plan to run from the Dutch town of Pieterburen, via the PieterPad to the Spanish city Santiago the Compostela. I want to continue my run to Finisterre, the end of the world.

An epic journey of over 5.000 kilometres. A run for hope…

Some funny facts & figures about the project…

Inspired by Forrest Gump

That day, for a particular reason – to escape corona – I decided to go for a little run. So I ran to the end of the road. And when I got there, I thought maybe I’d run to the end of the town. And when I got there, I thought maybe I’d just run out of the country. And when I got there, I thought maybe I’d run to the end of the world…

Run to the end of the world …

The route will take me from my hometown Arnhem to Mauth in Germany where I will start in the 1.001k Megerace.de.

After finishing this race I will run on to Santiago de Compostela via the Alps and the Pyrenees and on to Finisterre – the end of the world.
