During the Autumn, as temperatures drop and leaves fall, it is tempting to spend more and more time indoors. But it isn’t Winter yet! Saturday, October 22, saw the 6th edition of the Diplomats’ Fun Run and Walk take place in The Hague. Attendees met at the Chalet ten Bosch, near the Louwman Museum and Embassy of the United States, and, after everybody spent some time getting settled and socialized, it was time to set off.

Attendees chose between doing a 5 km run, going all the way around the Haagse Bos, or a 3 km walk which brought them some of the ponds before returning to the start. As the sky cleared, a light breeze carried through the air, and the park was alive with bikers, dog walkers, families, and all other sorts enjoying the fine October air. Diplomats from all around participated in this event including the Ambassadors of Ghana, Peru, Costa Rica, and Algeria.

After everybody had completed their run or walk, beverages and a light lunch was served at the Chalet ten Bosch and, luckily, the sky had cleared to a cerulean sea, and everybody was able to sit outside.

It was a marvelous opportunity for networking, renewing old connections, enjoying the fresh air, and to enjoy the beautiful nature which, here in Den Haag, we may sometimes forget we are lucky enough to have access to.

This was the six year that Diplomat Magazine had organized and sponsored this event and, for anybody who was not able to make it for this edition, we hope to see you next year!
