The NN CPC Loop Den Haag, which is traditionally held in spring, is moving to autumn this year. The popular running event-for-all has been postponed to 25 September. Due to uncertainty about the corona measures it is not realistic to stick with the original 13 March date. Your registration will remain valid.
In view of the current corona restrictions, which, in principle, remain in force until 8 March, it is impossible to organise an event with over 30,000 participants and a multitude of spectators in the customary, festive way. The uncertainty about the conditions that would govern the NN CPC Loop Den Haag on 13 March, make it inevitable for us to postpone. Synchronously, the City Pier Night Walk will also move and is now scheduled to take place on Friday 23 September.
“As an organisation, we are dependent on the easing of corona measures. If we were to get a green light at a late stage, there will not be enough time for thorough preparations of such a comprehensive event’’ explains Remco Barbier, CEO of Golazo Nederland. “Furthermore, we do not want to run the risk that we have to decide to cancel at the eleventh hour. It is important that all parties involved and primarily the participants know now what they can expect and can now focus on the autumn edition.’’
The decision to move the NN CPC Loop Den Haag to autumn was taken in close consultation with the Council and title sponsor Nationale-Nederlanden. Saskia Bruines (Councillor for the Economy): “Obviously, it has been no fun taking this decision, however, it is understandable. I am looking forward to a wonderful event in autumn, that traditionally attracts many runners and spectators to Malieveld and the course.”
The NN CPC Loop Den Haag boasts more than 30,000 registrations every year. The running classic is internationally known as a half marathon at top level. Moreover, the event offers recreational athletes of any age the opportunity to surpass themselves choosing from various distances on this beautiful, fast parcours that also doubles as a family party. Participants with a disability are also welcome. What is more, the schools run is the biggest one in the country.
