Rondje Posbank met best wat hoogtemeters — Trailruns voor beginners
Pauline van der Waal planned a run.
August 31, 2020
This trail run is not that long - just under six kilometers - but no less beautiful or challenging. Along the way you will encounter a number of viewpoints as well as large pieces of sand, which immediately makes the run a bit harder.From the parking lot you almost immediately dive into the forest, which quickly turns into heather. When you get to the first viewpoint, you have already covered more than a kilometer. From here the route runs slightly uphill to the Zijpenberg. This is immediately the highest point of your run, so stop at this 106 meters altitude to take in the surroundings 360 °.Once down, the heather turns into sand. This is going to be a spicy piece! Hold on, because before you arrive at the next viewpoint, that will change again.About 500 meters further you come to the namesake of this run: the Posbank. This stone bench is named after Mr. Pos, chairman of the ANWB. The bank has been there for more than 100 years and is located 90 meters above sea level. Reason enough to enjoy the view one more time. In clear weather you can see Germany from here.Time for the last bit. The path slowly but surely descends here, until you recognize the path where you started again. When you left you must have already seen Restaurant De Ruif next to the parking lot where your car is. So you can easily change your shirt or a warm sweater before you relax with a drink.
