Dressed in special ASICS running shirts, a maximum of 15,000 runners will cover a distance of 5 miles (8 km) in the dark, through the jolliest streets of Zaandam. The circuit of the 5 mile race crosses the traditional Dam tot Damloop circuit, to some degree. The Dam, Zuiddijk, and the finish on the Peperstraat for instance, which is visited by thousands of spectators each year on Sunday, will not be left out. New, however, is the prominent role of the watery area around Voorzaan, with the highlight being the passage of Het Eiland. A circuit that can be lit up spectacularly for this particular event.

Every kilometer is clearly signposted on the right side of the road.

Time limit
The limit for the 5 Mile run is 85 minutes. The finish closes for alle groups at 22.15 hours.
