Zaandam (2) – Damloop By Night

Dam Tot Dam Loop is an annual running event held on the third weekend of September.  This event starts on the Saturday evening with a “Damloop by Night”.  The 5-mile (8 km) course in the dark, runs through the streets of Zaandam.

We made a special trip to Zaandam to cheer the 15,000 participants.
