Almost every year I am one of the volunteers who is active during the Cruyff Run – 14K. This year it will be different. Now I am a VIP as a board member of Le Champion, the organization that executes this event for the Cruyff Foundation. It feels a little bit strange for me…
4,000 runners ran the Cruyff Legacy 14K Run, 14K Walk, 5K Run or Kids Run today. Thanks to the audio app, they were able to listen to stories about memorable places from the life of Johan Cruijff along the way. The Cruyff Legacy 14K Run was created in memory of Johan Cruijff, with the aim of keeping his ideas alive and raising money for the projects of his Cruyff Foundation.
The Cruyff Legacy 14K Run is a unique run along important places in the life of Johan Cruijff (in the picture you see the house where Johan Cruijff lived in his youth). For the first time, the 14-kilometer route could also be walked this year. In addition to the 14K Run and the 14K Walk, it was possible to participate in the 5K Run and the Kids Run. All distances of course finished in the Johan Cruijff ArenA.
After all the action, it is also good to have a drink and a typically Dutch bitterbal, together with Anna (the sister of Danny Cruijff) on my left side and Danny Cruijff on my right side.
