Following the tradition established in August 2020 to commemorate the arrival of the first Mennonites in Manitoba, in 2023 I took the opportunity while visiting my wife’s family in the Netherlands to run to the birthplace of Menno Simons himself. Fortunately my in-laws live only a half-marathon distance from Witmarsum, so the mission could be accomplished without disturbing our family vacationing plans.
Here is a zine chronicling the adventure. See below for some photos taken along the way.

Thanks for coming along for this adventure!
