Route: Markermeer Loop (Netherlands)

Location
Netherlands
Description

The Markermeer Loop is a very popular route around the Markermeer Lake, north of Amsterdam. It's mostly done by road cyclists but this addition here at FKT will be for walking / running attempts. The route follows the edge of the lake for its entirety, and is fully connected except for the 300m across the river IJ, and that's why the route starts north of the Amsterdam Centraal Station (on the north side after taking the pond) and finishes at Centraal Station ferry docks.

It's also an exact 160km (100miles), which makes for an interesting flat attempt at the distance.
