Information about our running course
Welcome the WZK Tri Team – the best running club in Wassenaar!
WZK Tri Team was originally registered as a triathlon club and that is why ‘Tri’ appears in our name. However, for many years now we have focussed on running. Our mission is to be an association that promotes endurance sport in the general sense and in particular running as well as, be a club where everyone feels welcome and at home, both socially and part of the team. We have approximately 100 members aged from 17 to 70 years and we cover all levels of experience from beginners to competitive runners under the guidance of qualified trainers.
The clubroom, known as ‘De Bovenkamer’ (The Room Above), is located at the Wassenaar swimming pool, the Sterrenbad. From here we are able to choose many different running routes within our beautiful surroundings for the twice weekly training sessions. These are held every Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 7PM sharp! There are also ample opportunities to go running with our members in the forest, the dunes and/or on the beach at the weekends.
You are absolutely welcome to join us for a few trial runs to see how you go. No charge for the first few, just come along on either Tuesday or Thursday evening. The running groups start at 7PM from outside the Sterrenbad swimming pool so come up to the clubroom 10 minutes early so we may introduce ourselves and assign you to the right run group level.
Annual membership is €97 plus a one off €11 registration fee. If desired, there is also a competition license fee of €22.25 per year with the Dutch Athletic Union if you are keen to run in races throughout the Netherlands. Please complete the registration form (inschrijfformulier), if you would like to become a member. Everybody is welcome!
Further information (Dutch language only) can be found within the website.
