Door de Kennemerduinen naar de Oosterplas — Trailruns voor beginners
Pauline van der Waal planned a run.
August 31, 2020
If you want to start trail running through the dunes, this route is a good start. Trail runs sometimes become quite a bit of a calf if you choose a run through the dunes, because you quickly make more vertical meters than you had anticipated. This route is a bit further from the sea, so you have to overcome less height differences.To get a taste of a climb, the viewpoint Starreberg has been included in the route. You can choose whether you run or walk up the stairs, or even just walk around the viewpoint.Eventually you will pass the Oosterplas, a swimming lake in the dunes. In the summer you often swim here, so if you want you can take a refreshing dip.You follow the course of the lake for a while, until you turn to the right, back towards the parking lot. When you get back to your car, you have covered more than six kilometers.You can also easily do this trail run by train. Then get off in Santpoort-Zuid and walk to the starting point Bleek en Berg in about 15 minutes.
Just walked this round on the snowy paths. Very nice! Nice route. I will definitely walk it more often.
