    The routes depart from the Schaapskooi on the Plaetse in Heeze. On the edge of the heath at the cozy Boscafé Strabrechtse Heide.

    With its blooming heather, beautiful views and varied single tracks, this is a special trail…


    The Strabrechtse Heide (heath) is blooming at the end of August, which is incredibly beautiful. Lots of colors and magnifying fields with a purple glow, because there are many heather plants in this nature reserve of Staatsbosbeheer. At this Strabrechtse Heide Trail, participants can choose from a 10km, 20km or a 30km trail distance. All routes show the diversity of the area.

    The area

    You leave from the Plaetze in Heeze at  De Schapenkooi (The Sheepshed). Across sandy roads and forest paths. Extensive views and varied forests provide a surprising experience. The expansive vistas make for beautiful color schemes that can only be seen for a few weeks each year.

    The routes

    All distances will lead you across the Strabrechtse Heide, the 21 and 30 km trails continue to the state forests of Someren. There you will find beautiful single tracks and untouched nature.

    This information applies to all routes

    • All routes are fully marked with arrows and ribbons
    • There are no cups available at our aid stations, so bring your own (reusable) race cup. If you do not have this, you can purchase it from the competition secretariat on the day of the event
    • There is no central starting moment, the time on your ticket indicates a time period within which you can start. This way, we keep it quiet on the paths. There is always a crew member present at the starting location for the latest instructions and additional information about the route.
