With the hopeful prospect that the corona measures are expected to be relaxed step by stept from April and many Dutch people could be vaccinated by summer, registration opened today for the 46th edition of the NN CPC Loop Den Haag.
‘’Now that he cabinet has set a new perspective, we are hopeful that our event in the fall can be organized in a safe manner,’’ says organiser Mario Kadiks. More and more vaccins are becoming available and the testing capabilities are also being expanded. All uncertainties aside, these are beneficial factors in the control of Covid-19. We are closely monitoring developments and will take all necessary measures to avoid risks.’’
The NN CPC Loop Den Haag has been rescheduled once from spring to fall due to the corona pandemic. Kadiks: “In the fall, there is a better chance for a safe, successful event. We hope that September 26 will be a beautiful late summer day. A day on which we see many happy faces of runners, who had to miss this for so long. We want to make it an unforgettable edition. After all the restrictions due to Covid-19, we are aiming for an extraordinary, unforgettable experience. Something we are all looking forward to.''
The NN CPC Loop Den Haag, initially scheduled for March 7, has approximately 40.000 registrations annually. The event is internationally known as a top-level half marathon. The event also offers amateur athletes of all ages the chance to outdo themselves on the beautiful, fast course over various distances and is also considered a family celebration. The School Run is also the largest in the country.

In the unlikely event that the event cannot take place on September 26 due to Covid-19, the registration remains valid for the next edition.
After the success of last year's anniversary edition, the CPC4ALL is on the program for the second time. Those who, for whatever reason, cannot participate in one of the existing sections of the NN CPC Loop Den Haag, can follow a 1K cours in an alternative way at the Malieveld and thus also experience the special atmosphere. Those participants may move around with aids such as hand bike or wheelchair. Under the motto #BEINSPIRED, more than ever: the NN CPC Loop Den Haag is for everyone!
