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 20 October 2019 at three locations:
– Amsterdam Zuid: De Borcht (under Amstelpark)
– Amsterdam Oost: Galileïplantsoen
– Amsterdam Zuid: Olympiaplein
You have until 30 September to register for the Kids Run at the TCS Amsterdam Marathon. The registration fee is €3.50 per participant, which includes a chip. Proceeds will go to the Ronald McDonald Huis VUmc/Kinderstad.
Late registration is open on Friday 18 and Saturday 19 October at the Helpdesk in Hall 3 at Sporthallen Zuid, and on the Sunday of the event at the Johan Cruyff Court, which is behind the stadium. The registration fee is €5.00 per participant, include a chip.
The start times and start pens for the Kids Run are available here.
The route is roughly 700m long.
