I originally posted this photo back in 2011, but since I’m not going to get a chance to go look for new photos today, I thought I’d repost this one. The reason for the pink balloons was the running of the annual Meidenloop, and today is the date for the 2014 edition. The Meidenloop is a 3k, 5k, or 10k race for women through the city, including under the Domtoren, which is where this stretch on Zadelstraat leads.
The race raises money for the Helen Dowling Institute, which helps those who are battling cancer. It takes place every year, so if you’re the running type, consider taking part in the next edition. It’s for a good cause and follows a beautiful route. Succes dames!
