The Gold-labelled Amsterdam Marathon has taken place annually since 1975. Thousands of participants come to beautiful Amsterdam to be involved in this marvellous event. It usually takes place on the third Sunday in October. The program of the race includes the Mini Marathon, Skylanders Kids Run, TCS 8 K run, a Mizuno Half Marathon race and the marathon itself.

Until 1989, the marathon remained on Dam Square, and the new start and finish venue were at Museumplein. But via the new Amsterdam Arena, the Amsterdam marathon eventually returned to the Olympic Stadium, its former venue.

The route is overfilled with things worth witnessing in Amsterdam. You'll pass the famous Rijks Museum twice, running past the Amstel Hotel and Museum of the Tropics with the enthusiastic residents of the city cheering you on all along the way. A favourite among Amsterdammers, the Vondel Park is also involved in the course. The 48-hectare terrene is full of ponds, flowers, playgrounds, and footpaths.
