About the Event
BEESEL RUN DAY - PART OF THE UNIQUE LONG COURSE WEEKEND
Be part of Long Course Weekend in Holland this May and join us for the Beesel Marathon on Sunday May 19th. Whilst this event sits within a three day triathlon, we invite swimmers, cyclists, triathletes and runners to compete together in the Friday, Saturday & Sunday events. Invite friends and training partners, bring along club members and support each other across multiple disciplines! The Beesel Marathon is the culmination of three days of endurance racing at Long Course Weekend Holland and treats participants to a flat, picturesque course that doesn’t stray from the coast line. Runners are in for a treat as they pass by creeks and beaches – with plenty of shade cover from the leafy surrounds, get ready for some PB’s! The event offers Marathon, Half Marathon, 10km and 6.5km options so there is something for all the family in the Endurance Paradise of Holland!

BE PART OF LONG COURSE WEEKEND
Long Course Weekend is a unique festival of sport that offers an unbeatable atmosphere. Over three days athletes can choose events from three disciplines (swim, bike, run) and multiple distances to create a tailor-made weekend course for their ability or training needs. We are delighted to be able to deliver an event that attracts swimmers, cyclists, runners and triathletes together for one weekend. We encourage you to get involved with some other disciplines throughout the weekend, with the choice of a variety of distances on offer each day.
