Along the canals of Haarlem, Netherlands people of all ages come to run to indulge in the charm of the city centre. The Grachtenloop festival in Holland
typically takes place in August. Thousands of participants join the competition and can choose their race. For instance, there is a 1.5 Kilometer family run, there is a 5 Kilometer run, and a 10 Kilometer run. Not only is the dash a scenic one, it is a fun way to stay healthy, and meet up with friends. The Canal run brings together people of all ages to burn off some steam.
