Amsterdam, Netherlands


The Buitenveldert is the modern Jewish neighborhood of Amsterdam, in the southwestern part of the city. The area is also near the convention center. There is some lovely running along here. The Kalfjeslaan is a 2+km car-free “lane” with trees lined up on both sides, especially pretty in autumn. Our route also includes a jaunt in the Amstelpark, a park near the convention center (RAI), and the Gijsbrecht van Aemstelpark, with its trails, playgrounds, and art. Just to the north is the urban campus of University of Amsterdm and a major hospital. And just to the west is Amsterdam Bos. There are also some pleasant streets for running in the neighborhood. Olympic Stadium nearby is a good side jaunt.

Add-On: On the eastern side of Amstelpark, there is wonderful running along the Amstel River, especially heading south toward Ouderkerk (we have a separate route for Amsterdam to Ouderkerk).

  1. Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no back up.
    Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?

  2. I think that everything said was actually very logical.
    However, what about this? what if you added a little information? I ain’t
    suggesting your information is not solid., but what if you added something to maybe get folk’s attention?
    I mean Kalfjeslaan/Buitenveldert – Great Runs is kinda vanilla.
    You could glance at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create news titles to get
    viewers to click. You might add a video or a related picture or two to get readers interested about
    everything’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it might bring your
    blog a little livelier.

  3. Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. But think of if you
    added some great images or video clips to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and videos,
    this blog could undeniably be one of the best in its field.
    Excellent blog!

  4. Wow, wonderful weblog layout! How lengthy have you ever been running a blog
    for? you made running a blog glance easy. The
    whole glance of your website is great, let alone the content
