There are also two Kids Runs that will take place during the TCS Amsterdam Marathon for the young runners among us. They can choose between the Kids Run and the Echo Mini Marathon.
The Kids Run is a children’s run that takes place during the TCS Amsterdam Marathon. Children aged 4 to 13 can participate in the 700-metre run, which starts behind the stadium and finishes in the stadium itself.
As well as the Kids Run (performance run for young athletes) at the Olympic Stadium, there are also short 1km fun runs for children who live in the area. The 1km runs for children under 13 will be held on Sunday at three locations:
– Amsterdam Zuid: De Borcht (under Amstelpark)
– Amsterdam Oost: Galileïplantsoen
– Amsterdam Zuid: Olympiaplein
The registration fee is € 3.50 per participant, which includes a chip. Proceeds will go to Jeugdfonds Sport Amsterdam.
Late registration is possible on Friday 16 and Saturday 17 October at the Marathon Expo. The registration fee is € 5.00 per participant (registration chip included). Registration is also possible on the Sunday of the event at the start of the Kids Run, behind the Olympic Stadium. The registration fee is €5.00 per participant (registration chip is included).
