Unique run over 100 bridges

The 100 Bridges Run takes you across a hundred (100!) bridges right through the historic city center of Leiden, The Netherlands.

You will run over ancient stone arch bridges and brand new Singelpark bridges, over drawbridges and stair bridges, roller bascule bridges and swing bridges. Over narrow bridges less than a meter wide, over steep bridges over 4 meters high. From the Nieuwe Rijn to the Oude Rijn, from the Korte to the Lange Mare, from the Morssingel to the Zijlsingel.

While walking over and along Leiden’s canals, rivers and moats, you will pass by the city in all its glory. Museums, monuments, mills, city gates, old factories, old and new parks, Hortus Botanicus, Academy quarter, cultural quarter, Nieuw Leyden. And those 100 bridges. A unique walk also for your calves, which will go up and down a bridge a hundred times.

For runners and walkers

Hikers are most welcome on Saturday September 24. You can choose your own lenght, but the challenge is to walk all 100 bridges and 19 km.

Runners can choose from 19 kilometers (100 bridges) or the shorter variant of 10 kilometers (52 bridges) on Sunday morning September 25.

Cross the bridge and register now for the first official edition of the 100 Bridges Run!
