Coming summer the European Championships take place in Amsterdam, especially for the children we organise the “Kids Run”. On Wednesday the 6th of July the Olympia Square will be transformed to a mini-ECH for children. Children in the age from 4 to 12 years can take part. The course around the Olympia Square has a length of about 800 metres. For the youngest children there is a course of 200 metres with the possibility for the parents to run along with their children. The best part: mascot Adam will also take part in the races!
The afternoon is dedicated to fun, happiness and of course athletics. The Olympia Square breathes athletics because it was once the training area of “Dutch Athlete of the Century”, Fanny Blankers-Koen. We are curious if we can spot future ‘Dafnes and Usains’ in the crowd of young runners on the 6th of July.
At the finish mascot Adam will be ready to congratulate everyone with their performances, probably he will also have time to take a picture with you.
The Kids Run promises to become an unforgettable experience.
