Everybody that is a bit into running or Groningen is acquainted with the 4 mile. Every year in October over 22.000 people run the 6.4km track from Haren to Groningen. Amongst the participants are some of the world finest runners, like 4 times winner Eluid Kipchoge, the  first and so far only human finishing a marathon sub 2 hours.

But less known, the big 4 mile has a small brother/sister. The Green 4 mile, organized in natural park The Onlanden (not far behind Martini hospital). Starting point is De Onlanderij a rustic rural ‘farm’, from there you will run (but time is not so important in this event, it’s more an experience run) 6.4km in this beautiful wilderness . The event is planned on Sunday 12 September and open for subscription from now on.
