Keelven Trail 2024

keelven trail 2024

On the edge of the Strabrechtse Heide are the Somerense forests and the area around the Keelven. The Keelven area has a beautiful fen landscape.

The fens were created by the blowing out of the sand. The water remains standing in the fens thanks to the impermeable layer in the subsoil. The fens are fed exclusively by rainwater.

The participants of this trail will be surprised by the versatility of this special nature reserve. There is greenery to be found in all seasons and in the summer months many birds flock to the many fens.

About Keelven

The Strabrechtse Heide is a phenomenal nature reserve for trail runners, with the Keelven as one of the highlights. This large fen, surrounded by heathland and forest, forms a picturesque and challenging part of the route. The area around Keelven offers varied terrain that will appeal to both novice and experienced trail runners.

The paths lead through sand drifts and dense pine forests, alternating with open heathlands where purple heather flowers are in bloom. This natural backdrop provides an atmospheric and inspiring walking experience. The gentle path surrounding the Keelven is ideal for training cross-country skills, while the sandy surface provides a good test of runners' stability and endurance.

In addition, Keelven is a quiet place where you can fully enjoy the silence and natural beauty of the area while running. This makes it a perfect location for a trail run that is both physically and mentally enriching.
