Few entries remain for the first edition of the Freedom Trail in Netherlands on September 8, so called because of its World War II-linked course.

The course retrace the steps of the airborne forces of the famous 1st British Airborne Division during Operation Market Garden in September 1944.

The organisers promise you will "relive the sights, sounds and smells of history as you run the trails along historical buildings and dugouts where soldiers suffered enormously, fought ferociously, and earned the highest awards of bravery. The Freedom Trail runs through the beautiful moorland surroundings of Arnhem and is a unique trail to experience!"

Runners can choose from three different distances. The 44k starts at Ginkelse Heide, the exact point where John Frost’s soldiers were dropped from the plane in 1944. The start of the 18k and 22k start in Papendal.
