The Amsterdam Marathon and the Rotterdam Marathon are the two largestrunning events in the Netherlands. Thousands of professional and recreational runners from over 50 countries participate in the marathon yearly. The start and finish of the Amsterdam Marathon is always the Olympic Stadium.
Route through Amsterdam
Not a single year goes by in which the Amsterdam Marathon has the same route. Due to continual road-works, the 42 kilometer long course is forced to find a new way from the Olympic Stadium, along the River Amstel, the Vondelpark, Museum Square and back each year. Despite the ever-changing course ,many professional and recreational runners register in a blink of an eye every year.
