This giant half circle running loop takes you around Amsterdam's city center alongside the river Amstel. This makes it a flat course, but you can collect a bit of altitude by sprinting up the bridges when crossing the other canals. If you have multiple goes at this route, try to change it up by cutting across along some of the smaller canals or exploring parallel streets. It is worth it.

What Others Are Saying
Next to this river you can run as far as you like and starting in the city center, it only takes 1.5 miles to see stretched out grass-lands around you. Especially for summer evenings when there’s a good sunset I truly recommend this one.
