TCS Amsterdam Marathon

Number one!

Autumn come with many events, mostly indoors, because of the cool weather all around the Europe...but there is one event that isn't scared of any weather changes, Marathon! When it comes to marathons, Amsterdam is definitely number one to be admired! Annually mid October is the time to bring every runner together to Amsterdam's coloured streets to join for a run! TCS Amsterdam Marathon is no doubt the best, marathon draws elite runners from around the world.

This year it will be the 37th Amsterdam Marathon, taking place on Sunday 21, with many international marathon lovers, so prepare your best running shoes,shirts and all the equipment needed to proudly participate and make your country proud :) The start and finish place of the Amsterdam Marathon is in Olympic Stadium in front of the grandstand. The runners will pass by through all the city, following the River Amstel and enjoying the beauty of Amsterdam, this year there will be more than 25.000 runners participating from over 70 countries, the big start will be at 9.30, so that Sunday don't sleep in!

The Olympic Stadium was build back in 1928, in-between the historic canals, Rijksmuseum and the world wide famous Vondelpark. For those ones who want to participate, but don't feel that much trained or secure, or simply less energetic, there's half marathon and the Menzis 7.5 km run. The route is fast, free of traffic and - as you'd expect in the Netherlands, flat! The Marathon of Amsterdam is now classified in the Golden League category by the International Association of Athletic Federations, for the highest level road racing competitions, so don't think it's some kind of any city's daily run!
