Experience the thrill of the Harbour Run Rotterdam, an annual event offering a challenging obstacle course through the iconic port of Rotterdam. Suitable for all levels, choose from 6 or 10-kilometre routes with nearly 30 obstacles for an unforgettable adventure.
The event expects to host 6,000 participants, including 260 corporate teams. The atmosphere along the course and at the start and finish areas, complemented by live music and various food trucks, contributes to the event's annual success.
Harbour Run Rotterdam 2024
Enthusiastic participants can already sign up for the 2024 edition, scheduled for October 6, 2024. Don't miss this adventure and take advantage of the pre-registration.
Exclusive access to port terrains
Participants will traverse a course that winds through the expansive Rotterdam port. The event offers a rare opportunity, as the terrains of the port businesses are usually off-limits to the general public. This exclusivity adds a special allure to the obstacle run.
Unique obstacles: A word from the organisers
In 2023, Joost Kuyper, the project leader of the Harbour Run representing the sports marketing agency SportVibes, spoke about the distinctiveness of the obstacles. “For this 10th edition, we are bringing back some classics, including my personal favourites, like the giant ball pit that all participants have to scramble through. Let's not forget 'Windkracht 10,' a container tunnel ending with a powerful wind blower, which always results in amusing footage as participants run through a storm of wind force ten,” he said.
A Growing Community in Rotterdam
Over the years, the Harbour Run has become an integral part of Rotterdam's event calendar, consistently attracting a large number of participants and spectators. Ramona, a previous participant with a corporate team from RET, described the event as “a sort of adult jungle gym.” She added, “It's incredibly fun to participate. We support each other in overcoming obstacles, wait for each other, and cheer each other on!”
