Go for the Koopmans Double Singelloop!

Grab your running shoes, set your goals and get ready for a new running challenge. Sign up for the Double Singelloop: the 10 English Mile (16 km)!

Have you been at the start of the 5 English Mile before and are ready for a new challenge? Or are you competing in a half or full marathon this fall? Then this is the perfect competition to see where you stand.

music every 500 m!

The route takes you along the 10 Enschede canals and past a number of iconic and cool buildings, such as the Oude Ambachtsschool, Rijksmuseum Twenthe and the Pathmos neighborhood. It’s not just all those supporters along the route that provide conviviality. The bands and DJs you encounter every 500 m also make it a party with fine beats. And lucky you: you walk past all those enthusiastic supporters not once, but even twice!

A good atmosphere and fast finish times are guaranteed.

relax in the people's park!

After 16 kilometers, not only your medal and a lot of fun in the Volkspark await you at the finish, but certainly also a feeling of pride and satisfaction. You can linger in the park for a while, because there really is all kinds of things for you and your supporters to do! Enjoy good food and drinks together, live music and a variety of sports activities in the Sports Zone and Kids Zone.

Registrations from Aug. 19
If you registered Aug. 19 or later, your start number will be waiting for you during the Singelloop weekend in the Volkspark.

Saturday, September 7: 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.
Sunday, September 8: 09:00 – 30 minutes before the start

We encourage you to come on Saturday, Sept. 7 to avoid any wait times before the start!

Please note that participants in the company run and kidsrun registered via the link for schools are an exception to this. Please see the Practical Information on the relevant pages for this.


When you register, you give your expected finish time. Based on this, you will be assigned to start section A, B, C, D or W (race section). The letter of your start box is printed on your start number.

The starting boxes are spacious and will be opened one at a time. We use an hourglass start, giving you space to run quickly at your own pace.

At the Menzis arch, start your favorite running course!

The course is entirely paved. You walk clockwise two laps along the inner side of Enschede’s canals: from Tubantiasingel to Boddenkampsingel, Lasondersingel, Laaressingel, Oliemolensingel, Hogelandsingel, Varviksingel, Getfertsingel, Pathmossingel and Volksparksingel.

The “false flat” makes it a treacherous course: it seems flat, but there are some slight rises and falls in it.

Water and fruit stations
Along the way, you will encounter a water station every two kilometers. Only water is offered here, not sports drinks. Care stations are clearly identified by banners across the road. At each water station there are several stalls in a row.

Tip: Do not stop directly at the first table, but walk on to the second or third table and avoid a roadblock.

In the walk-out street in the Volkspark, you will receive a thirst quencher and fruit in addition to water.

Changing clothes and showering
This can be done in the Pathmoshal (Veilingstraat 20, 7513 CZ Enschede). This sports hall is located opposite the Volkspark, on the Volksparksingel side and is within walking distance of start/finish.

Ample toilet units will be placed at the start and finish in the Volkspark.

Drop off luggage
On race day, you can drop off your luggage. The site for this is clearly visible in the Volkspark. Attached to your start number is a luggage tag that matches your start number. You attach the tag to your luggage and retrieve your bag after the finish line upon presentation of your start number.

Sports massage
Sports care Eastern Netherlands provides massages at Volkspark. The massage tent is easily recognizable during Singelloop weekend.

EHBO Enschede will be present during the Singelloop. The first aid tents in the Volkspark can be identified by the first aid flags.

AEDs are provided by Twente Heart Safe. AEDs are available on the course as well as at the first aid station in the Volkspark.

Your race number includes a chip for electronic timekeeping. Be sure to attach your start number to your chest, not your back.

Your finishing time is based on your net time: timekeeping starts the moment you cross the starting line and stops when you cross the finish line.

You can find the results the same day on our website, at and via the MyLaps results page.

Of course, after the finish you will receive that well-deserved and beautiful Singelloop medal!

Medal engraving
When registering through August 16, you can check that you would like to have your medal engraved for an additional €7.00. A symbol is then printed on your start number, proving that you paid for this.

Didn’t indicate medal engraving at registration, but still want it on Sept. 8? No problem. You can also decide this on the spot! You will then pay €9.00.
