TCS Amsterdam Marathon routes

TCS Marathon

The course starts out at the Olympic Stadium, taking in sights such as the Rijksmuseum, and Vondelpark via the Amstel. The route offers lots of rural scenery, and there are plenty of on course drinks stations, toilets and first aid facilities.

Mizuno Half Marathon

The largest half marathon in the Netherlands. A one loop course through the centre, much of the end of the route is shared with the full marathon.


Setting off from Stadionweg, the 8K also takes runners through the Rijksmuseum and Vondelpark.

All races lead to the Olympic Stadium, where runners are treated to a spectacular climax, with huge crowds cheering them on to the finish.

Good Morning City Run

Starting at Museumplein and taking place the day before the marathon proper, this events consists of two routes - 3.3K and 6.5K. Runners will be taken along the canals past many of the city's best known sights such as the Flower Market, the Dam square, and Skinny Bridge. This will be run at an easy pace - its not a race!

  • Did the TCS Marathon in 2013

    The start is crowded and it is well worth getting there early for - even in the front pens I spent the first 2 miles in quite slow traffic. The course itself is pancake flat (save for the occasional underpass around mile 20) and spends most of the time well outside of the city - long stretches along the Amstel river. The wind was a bit of a challenge and I spent a bit of time finding a suitable group to sit in and protect myself. The final 3 miles are incredible - crowds get bigger and bigger and then the stadium finish is phenomenal. Overall a great marathon to get a PB on
  • Did the TCS Marathon in 2017

    Wonderful atmosphere, starting and finishing in the stadium. I completed the half marathon in 2016 and went back to complete the full in 2017. The course wasn't the most interesting as you don't actually go into the city centre.
