After a freezy start with our Winter Edition in Switzerland you can heat up your frostbites at the Fisherman’s Friend StrongmanRun in Rotterdam – Winter is finally over! On May, 12th and 13th you can run the main event with STRONG-12 and THE ORIGINAL and participate in the FFSMR Series.

Experience the unique and price honored deep and dirty mud of Netherlands nature reserve “Het Bergse Bos” (The Hilly Woods). The course stretches over four high hills, also called the Dutch Alp, where you can challenge yourself in three different distances: 7km, STRONG-12 and THE ORIGINAL, with 40 awesome obstacles. You will burn off energy surrounded by beautiful nature, shady woods, refreshing water (yes – you will get wet) and lots of fun people!

Also, for the first time ever, we will introduce a special family run over 3,5 km and 20 cool obstacles in a mega crazy setting. The trail goes through the woods, over steep hills and trails and has some spectacular surprises in store. We challenge all parents with their children to participate in this unforgettable event. Can you take a beating and aren’t you afraid of getting dirty? Then the StrongFamilyRun is something for you!

Whether you bring your family, partner or friends along, you should take time to enjoy the great Dutch cheese, fries and one of their remarkable kinds of beer in the heart of Rotterdam which is only a stone’s throw away. Industrial harbor flair included! But there is even more to discover.


Beside the Run of your life you can check out the watchtower in the ‘Hoge Bergse bos’. The tower offers a view over the Rotterdam region and on clear days you can see the sea. On the 10th and 13th of May 2018 you can admire the StrongmanRun from a different perspective there.

Outdoor Vally:

As you are already in an adventure mood, visit the versatile outdoor center with a wide and varied range of activities and arrangements. There are tailor-made programs for family and friends, companies, schools and kids.

Hoge Bergse bos (High Mountain Forest):

On a former rubble dump – don’t worry, it’s not smelly anymore- this recreation area is fully equipped for the sporting holiday maker: climbing, mountain biking, survival, skating, golf, canoeing, trekking and much more are among the possibilities.

You can also relax at the ‘Silent Waters’ project in which fountains, bridges and sculptures shape the many forms of water.

Lage Bergse bos (Low Mountain forest):

Take a walk at the park-like recreation forest and recover from your strains! A large number of roads and paths lead you past the most beautiful spots in the area. The meeting square is the central point in the area. Here is ‘Paviljoen de Bergse Plas’, the ‘jeu de boules’ terrain and from here you have a great view of the play pond that winds through the area.
