Iconic Amsterdam running event

Please note that the programme for 2020 is likely to change. For up-to-date information, visit Dam tot Damloop's website for the latest.

The Dam tot Damloop (Dam to Dam Run) does exactly what it says on the tin, weaving in excess of 35,000 runners on a ten-mile (16.1 km) course from Amsterdam to the heart of Zaandam. An extra special addition is the 5-mile night race on the Saturday evening

Fun for everyone

For those who aren’t quite ready to take on the 10-mile challenge, there’s also a 4-mile version through the streets of Zaandam. And youngsters are certainly not left out in the cold – the Mini Dam tot Damloop gives sporty kids between 4 and 12 years old the chance to run a 0.6 km, 1.2 km or 2.2 km course.

Walking and biking

If running isn’t really your thing, you can still get involved in the weekend. A variety of Dam tot Dam walks are organised and cyclists can also participate in routes ranging from 40 to 145 km. And amidst all that there’s a host of entertainment in place for both competitors and spectators.
