Gold labeled, Amsterdam marathon is a beautiful city marathon with thousands for participants yearly.There are five events scheduled on the day of the race: the marathon, the Mizuno Half Marathon, the TCS 8 K run, the Skylanders Kids Run and the Mini Marathon. The first TCS Amsterdam Marathon as we know it today was held on 3 May 1975. The marathon remained on Dam square until 1989. Amsterdam’s new start and finish venue became Museumplein. Via the newly-constructed Amsterdam ArenA, the Amsterdam marathon finally returned to its former venue, the Olympic StadiumThe route is packed with things worth seeing in Amsterdam. As such, you pass the world famous Rijks Museum on the Museumplein twice and you also run past the Museum of the Tropics and the Amstel Hotel. And along the way the enthusiastic residents of Amsterdam cheer you on. The Vondel Park is also part of the course. In the full marathon Amsterdam’s largest public park is first approached from the Amstelveenseweg. The second time you come from the opposite direction and enter the park from the Leidseplein side. The 48-hectare park, full of flowers, ponds, footpaths and playgrounds is a favourite among Amsterdammers.
