The Amsterdam Marathon – officially called the TCS Amsterdam Marathon – is a great opportunity to explore northern Europe’s canal city on your own two feet! Sure, it’s one of the world’s fastest marathons…but it’s also a fun, colorful way to see Amsterdam up close as you run under the Rijksmuseum, along the Amstel and through the Vondelpark!
The 2024 event is scheduled for Sunday, October 20, 2024 in Amsterdam, Netherlands (see more detailed location info below). The race has a field limit of 20,000 participants.
The Amsterdam Marathon registration price in 2024 will be €120 for individual competitors and can be done through the official event website here.
The Amsterdam Marathon starting and finish line are both located at the Olympic Stadium in the Amsterdam-Zuid borough of southwest Amsterdam. The course map for the Amsterdam Marathon can be found here and is a good reference for spectators who would like to cheer you on. Race day transport information can be found here.
The best area to stay for participants is near to the Olympic Stadium start/finish line in Amsterdam-Zuid.
If you are looking to explore the popular attractions of downtown Amsterdam consider lodging options to the north/northeast of the stadium. If you are only flying into Amsterdam to run the race, consider staying more to the southwest near Amsterdam Schiphol Airport.
