Official: 14k Run and Johan Cruyff Arena

Logo_Cruyff-14kIt is a very special day today. It would have been the 70th birthday of Johan Cruijff, the first (official!) 14k Run is organized and the Amsterdam Arena has a new name, the Johan Cruyff Arena.

To start with the 14k Run. Yes, you are right! Last year there was already a 14k Run. A volunteer organized it and almost 100 runners took part of this run. And it was very succesful! This year, also due to the 70th birthday of Johan Cruijff, the Johan Cruyff Foundation, Ajax Foundation and event organizer Le Champion worked together in organizing the first official 14k Run. I was / am involved in all three parties and that is why it is logical that I am directly involved in this event. During the day I was 1 of the 300 volunteers and I was present at the start of the first ‘official’ 14k Run and  ‘responsible’ for the VIP area.













During the start the news was known that the current stadium ‘Amsterdam Arena’ (where football club Ajax is playing his matches) is now called ‘The Johan Cruyff Arena’. What an honour and so well deserved. Proud!
