About the TCS Amsterdam Marathon
The TCS Amsterdam Marathon is held annually in mid-October and attracts runners from over 90 countries around the world. Every year, more than 35.000 runners participate. A total of five TCS events are scheduled for October 20: the full marathon, the Mizuno Half Marathon, the TCS 8km run, the Kids Run and the Mini Marathon.
The route of the Marathon
The TCS Amsterdam Marathon, now in its 45th edition, is known for its beautiful course. It starts and finishes in the historic Olympic Stadium and partially follows the Olympic route along the Amstel River. The run will also proceed through Amsterdam city centre.
Supporters and other spectators have free access to the grandstand and the seats of the Olympic Stadium.
During the TCS Amsterdam Marathon, DJs, samba bands and other entertaining groups will perform along the sidelines of the course. Amateurs and professionals will be running side by side in the TCS Amsterdam marathon, so spectators will be able to see some of the best athletes in the world as well!
The marathon route will lead runners past beautiful locations in the city centre, so a view of the marathon can easily be combined with a visit to Vondelpark or city attractions such as the Tropenmuseum.
