You can find an overview of the current travel advice from the Dutch government here. The competition takes place in the province of Gelderland.

Of course, there is always the possibility that due to a second peak of the virus, renewed stricter measures may apply that will force us to cancel the event.

The 2-Days will be adapted to comply with the corona measures. You can find an overview of the measures applicable in the Netherlands here.

A Team Sprint will be organized on the eve of the 2-Days of the Veluwe. A team sprint is run individually, and the times of the team members are added together afterwards. The start takes place with 3 runners (from different teams) at the same time, starting every 2 minutes. Due to corona restrictions, we have opted for this format instead of a relay (as previously announced). The Team Sprint will be run in teams of 3 persons. The distance for each runner is about 3.5 km. This is the real distance of the shortest route choice. In addition to the team classification an individual classification will also be drawn up.
