TOP LIVE EVENTS
The Amsterdam Marathon is one of the larger European marathons, taking place in late Autumn each year, usually around the middle of October.
In a country renowned worldwide for flat terrain the course is widely
regarded as one of the gentler options and as such represents a decent
starting point for runners with an eye of working their way up to the
more challenging marathon distance events.
The marathon, which has now been taking place annually since 1975, is currently fully titled the TSC Amsterdam marathon die to the current sponsor Tata Consultancy Services. In common with many city marathons these days there is also a half marathon run on the same day, using a lot of the same route.
The main marathon gets underway at 9.30am, with an official latest
finish time of 5pm. The race starts at the city's Olympic Stadium, while
the finish line is located in the same location, just a short distance
As well as the Olympic Stadium, some of the city's most notable sights are covered by the race route. These include:
