About Tourist Running

Why we run? Where we run?


It was late summer 2009. Hans-Peter (“HP” to his friends) and Paul were running in Amsterdam. Amsterdam was at its prettiest, the 17th-century houses mirrored in the canals with a little help from the sun. Amsterdam was still asleep, unaware of the splendid natural beauty outside. Unlike us: trained runners and “Amsterdammers”, we inhaled Amsterdam with every breath as we ran on along te canals. We started chatting about what a privilege it was to be able to combine our love of running with our passion for the city Amsterdam. Suddenly an idea struck us: why not share it with the rest of the world? And so we did and here we are with our company Tourist Run Amsterdam. Let’s run in Amsterdam together.

Both of us are members of an Amsterdam triathlon club. Most of our guides are too. All of them are well-trained athletes. They know Amsterdam and will be able to give you background info on lots of the places of interest you’ll pass by.

Let the fun begin! Book us so that once you’re back home, you’ll be able to say: “Yes, we ran… Amsterdam!”
