The Hague Urban Trail

The NN The Hague Urban Trail run will be held on Sunday, 24 June. A very special running experience, taking you past and through some of the city’s coolest buildings. It’s a voyage of discovery combining sport, culture and architecture.

An Urban Trail is a running event, but it is a bit different from ordinary runs. The Urban Trail concept focuses on the unique experience of running a course through the city. There is no competitive element, which means there are also no results.

The course takes you past (or even through) Every some unique urban locations, buildings and places of historical interest where people normally don't set foot – at least not in running shoes. It is suitable for people of all ages and the focus is on experiencing a city environment. And a free breakfast will be served to all the participants after the finish.


The course is either 5.5 kilometres or 10 kilometres long through The Hague’s city centre with 18 locations including: Escher in Het Paleis, Grote Kerk, Paleistuin, the Paard and De Bijenkorf.
