Leiden University and the annual Canal Run both have something to celebrate: 2019 is the year of the 44th Canal Run and the 444th birthday of Leiden University. Come and run with us on 5 April.
This year the theme of the medals, flyers and posters of the 44th Canal Run is the 444-year anniversary of Leiden University. To mark this special birthday, Leiden University is sponsoring the charities supported by the Canal Run.
