Finished!!! 🏁✅🍾 - Run through all the streets of the municipality of GroningenSep 17, 2022
After 14 months of running 100 times, I have seen all 2075 streets of the municipality of Groningen. And today on Sept. 17, 2022, I officially finished by running the last 7 streets with friends and family.
Why I ran through all the streets of Groningen?
During COVID there were no big running events. And during that time I saw a Facebook post by Mark Potze a Dutchman living in Helsinki. In that post he shared that he was running through all the streets there. I thought that was so special and thought it might be fun to run through all the streets of Groningen. After a test run in my own de own neighborhood I was excited and started my monster project.
It was a fun and beautiful challenge. And especially a special way to discover my own city and municipality. I discovered many beautiful places such as: playgrounds, picnic spots, beautiful houses, nice streets and beautiful nature. But... I'm also glad it's over and now I can walk my favorite laps again ;)

On my Strava account you can find all the runs (with the title: "Every Single Street Groningen"). During each run I also took pictures of things I found beautiful or special and added them to each run. This way you get a bit of a picture of the entire municipality of Groningen.

At the moment, I have not found a new extreme challenge. Nor am I going to look for one. Something else is bound to come my way. And I'm already looking forward to that!
