About the race

What better way to take in Amsterdam than by running the iconic marathon or half marathon alongside the picturesque canals? It may be the bike capital of Europe, but in October the runner reigns supreme. Zig zag through the city’s waterways and narrow streets, before becoming an Olympic hero for the day as the course kicks off and ends at the Olympic Stadium.

The route

Highlights of the marathon course are the start and finish in the Stadium and the passage through the iconic Rijksmuseum, as well as the kilometres along the Amstel and through the Vondelpark – the pleasingly flat route means more time for soaking up the sights.
