Stichting Ushersyndroom good cause Zandvoort Circuit Run

The popular Zandvoort Circuit Run will be held again on Sunday 27 March 2022. As a runner you must have run this unique race once in your life. The Zandvoort Circuit Run is known as the most varied track in the Netherlands. This year Stichting Ushersyndroom (the Dutch Usher Syndrome Foundation) was selected the official good cause.

Sprint from the pit lane into the direction of the hills and the compound banking. All distances run a full lap on the circuit. After this the long-distance track goes into the direction of the beach, the dunes and the village. The start and finish are on the Formula 1 circuit of Zandvoort.

Start and finish on the Formula 1 circuit!
You start and finish on the circuit and run a few kilometres on the beach, in the dunes and through the nice coastal village. You can choose between the 10 English Miles (16.1 km), 12 kilometres (competition run) of the 4 km (one lap). There also is the Circuit Run Specials and the Kids Circuit Run for children. Children (between 4 and 12 years old) with a wheeler or RaceRunner can also participate!

It is also possible to participate in the Zandvoort Circuit Business Run with your colleagues. This is a perfect opportunity for team building. Challenge your team to appear at the start of the 13th edition of the Zandvoort Circuit Run on Sunday 27 March.

There will be nice activities for the children around the paddock.

Rotary Club Zandvoort and Stichting Ushersyndroom 
Special attention will be paid to the funding of good causes. The formula in ‘Zandvoort’, which includes the organisation of fund raising for good causes in cooperation with the Rotary Club, is unique.

The organisation hopes to collect donations by means of voluntary contributions from the entrants and by making use of special Rotary teams. The Rotary Club Zandvoort will make known the proceeds some weeks after the Zandvoort Circuit Run.

We are really proud and grateful that the Usher Syndrome Foundation is the good cause of the Zandvoort Circuit Run edition 22.

Heading for the point on the horizon
Whatever track you choose, you can create your own sponsor campaign and ask people to sponsor you for the Usher Syndrome Foundation. The proceeds of the Zandvoort Circuit Run and your sponsor campaign will be used to finance scientific research into a treatment for Usher Syndrome. At this moment, there is no treatment yet that can stop people from becoming both deaf and blind caused by Usher Syndrome, but there is hope! The mission of Stichting Ushersyndroom is ‘There will be a treatment for Usher Syndrome in 2025!’. This is the point on the horizon we are heading for!
