The Amsterdam Marathon is renowned for its fast and beautiful course.  Street Child has a number of places available for this stunning race, which follows the Olympic route along the Amstel River, past stately homes and, of course, past some classic Dutch windmills!

This is an unforgettable race with crowds lining the course and cheering runners along in the historical Olympic Stadium start and finish point. We have places in both the marathon and half marathon – we would love you to join us!

About the Amsterdam marathon:

What: Marathon / half marathon  | When: 15 October 2017 | Entry fee: $50 | Fundraising target: $1,000
