The Singelloop Utrecht is an annual road running event over 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) which takes place on the streets of city of Utrecht in the Netherlands. It is typically held in either September or October.On 27 September the 65th edition of the Singelloop Utrecht rheumatism place. Singelloop Utrecht rheumatism is the oldest streetrun of Netherlands with the fastest 10 km course in the world (26:44). 

The start is in the monumental Wilhelminapark with the finish on the famed Maliebaan. All these elements contribute to a unique walking experience in Utrecht.The competition, which roughly translates as the Utrecht Canal Run, was initiated by Nico Munzert and had its first edition on 30 May 1925. The race, which followed the banks of Utrecht’s canals over a 4700-metre-long course, had garnered over 100 participants by 1931, but the crowds of spectators were much larger with over 75,000 people gathering to witness the event. 

The length of the race was extended in 1937, but the event suffered interruption in this period, being absent between 1940 and 1946 due to World War II and undergoing cancellations in 1950 and 1955. The 25th edition of the race was held in 1956.The Singelloop was forced from its original course in the 1960s due to the increase in traffic in the city. Runners instead held the race in Wilhelminapark. The competition attracted top level Dutch runners in the 1970s: Klaas Lok won in 1974, Rob Druppers took the 1975 title, then Gerard Tebroke defeated an injured Jos Hermens to win the 1976 race. The race acquired its long-running course format of two 5-kilometre laps in 1978. Gerard Nijboer won the 1979 competition.
