We are working on a project called the Slachtemarathon. The Slachtemarathon is a hiking and running event of 42 km in Friesland, the Netherlands. Due to Leeuwarden, the Frisian capital, being the European Capital of Culture in 2018, the organization team is organizing a special edition where culture is the central focus along with sports. The main purpose is to export the concept and to attract international interest, even though currently the target group is mainly constituted by Dutch people.
The reason why we post this message is to ask you if you would be interested in participating. Please list your reasons why you would or would not come. What is more, do you think that going internationally is a feasible goal of the marathon, it usually being organized at such a small scale? What would make you come to such an event?
