Course Dam tot Damloop
In I participated in the first edition of the Damloop by Night and I also ran it last year 5 miles. I had never participated in the actual Dam tot Damloop 10 miles , because the race mostly clashed with other races I was doing. When I got to Amsterdam it was already pouring with rain and by the time I got to the restaurant where we were supposed to meet up I was already soaked. I did get to meet marijeruns and runningessie. We then had to go back to Centraal Station to drop our bags at the truck and get to our corral.
