Feasting your eyes during the half marathon

Athletics fans beware: the 46th edition of the Riwal AWP Half Marathon is coming up on Saturday, March 9. It is the 2nd race in the "StardGRL Running Circuit." Which consists of 8 road races in Vijfheerenlanden, Alblasserwaard, Hoekschewaard and Drechtsteden. This annual official road race is circled on the calendar of many athletics fans. The 21.1 km half marathon is run by true competitive runners, the 5 and 10 km by recreational runners, and there are several distances for youth (free, at the FORTIUS athletics track). The beauty of this event is the course. The start is at FORTIUS.
