Exciting news: parkrun is coming to the Netherlands!
 
In 2020, parkrun will be launching in the Netherlands, becoming the 22nd country in the parkrun family.
 
We are in the process of confirming start dates and locations, but there has been an overwhelming amount of interest from all over the country. Plans are currently in development to see the launch of parkrun in major cities right across the Netherlands.
 
As part of the launch, a team from parkrun will be visiting the Netherlands between October 25-29 2019 and meeting with prospective teams and individuals who would like to be part of parkrun Netherlands.
 
We are grateful to have the support of the Dutch Athletics Association, who share our view that parkrun can act as a great way of increasing participation, physical activity and volunteering in the country.
 
We will soon announce dates and venues for the meetings to take place in October. If you would like to know more, you can get in touch via nederland@parkrun.com , or if you are interested in starting an event, you can complete this form.
 
You can follow the latest progress by following parkrun Nederland on TwitterFacebook and Instagram at @parkrunNL.
