Well hello Autumn! The days are definitely getting chillier and shorter, right? The good news is there are loads of sporty events to join and we’re going to feature all the highlights. We’ll also shine the spotlight on an awesome trainer who will definitely give you the motivation you need to stay active and have fun all at the same time. So let’s get started!
Our first highlight is the Freedom Run. It takes place in Best and the motto is “Move in Freedom”. There are five distances to choose from, and each one is named after British and American veterans who fought and helped liberate the areas around Eindhoven, Son, and Best.
Runners will run on the very terrain that many fought on, so don’t expect all smooth roads. There is also uneven ground, tracks and sandy trails. The maximum number of runners is 750, so don’t wait too long to register!
