On Sunday February 11th, Schoorl is closed from 8.30 hours for all incoming car traffic. We therefore recommend you to use the shuttle buses.

Shuttle bus service

To reach Schoorl easily and quickly, a shuttle bus service is used between Alkmaar and Schoorl. Haven’t you order a bus ticket during your registration? Ordering one is still possible on site. A return ticket costs € 7,-. The buses leave from Alkmaar Central Station (Stationsweg 43 C, 1815 CB)  and Sportpaleis de Meent (Terborchlaan 301, 1816 MH). In Schoorl the bus stop is 150 meters from the start. Sporthal de Blinkerd is 500 meters away.

Buses run to Schoorl from 8.30 until 10.30 hours for the start of the 21.1K and the 30K. From 11.15 until 14.00 hours the buses run for the start of the Mizuno 10K.
