ABN AMRO Marathon Rotterdam -14 april 2013

With the fastest marathon course in the world and an unequalled atmosphere, this event, the biggest one-day sporting event in The Netherlands, may rightfully claim to be the running experience of the year.

ABN AMRO Marathon Rotterdam -14 april 2013 Last year more than 22,000 participants stood at the starting line, including some of the world's top athletes. Several bands, DJ's, acts and orchestras will perform alongside the course of the ABN AMRO Marathon Rotterdam to support the runners and the spectators with their music. The musicians bring together the heartbeat of the thousands of runners with the urban beat of the city.

Besides its super-fast course, Rotterdam is renowned for its unique ambiance and enthusiastic spectators. They give every participant a hero's reception at the finish on the Coolsingel, making the finish one of the best experiences for the runners. Last year there were more than 900,000 spectators along the course.
