Early March the annually half marathon of De Waal is held. A regional Athletic union walk. You could say it's an early spring classic.
It appears again and again that the participants come from near and far to participate. A sporty weekend getaway, and walking on a Waddeneiland (North Sea island) are probably the main reasons. Of course, De Waal is known for its cozy atmosphere, its intimacy, soup afterwards, lottery determined by starting number and many other prizes in kind. Although the route is very rural, it is quite sheltered and varied. The average number participants is usually around 150.
The 'Halve van De Waal' usually consists of two distances: the 10.6 km and 21.1 km. There is also a recreational route included with a distance of 5 km. It's also possible to walk this route.
