It is important to prepare well for a marathon. That is why Stichting Trainingslopen offers training runs specifically for the TCS Amsterdam Marathon. Below you will find more information about these training opportunities.

Stichting Trainingslopen

Since 2007 Stichting Trainingslopen organises their popular and well-known training runs in preparation for the TCS Amsterdam Marathon. You are welcome on one or more of our training runs to prepare, under the guidance of our experienced pacers, for your marathon. The runs are non-competitive. In a nutshell, the training runs are about the specific training effect of long endurance runs, the social aspect of running in a group, the sharing of knowledge and experience by our seasoned pacers and running coaches, the exchange of marathon stories between runners, and respect for each persons’ running ability.

Stichting Trainingslopen organises the training runs in cooperation with Athletics Club Phanos. Start and finish are in the Olympic Stadium in Amsterdam. The routes explore the Amsterdamse Bos, where there is a drink station, offering you water, sports drink and fruit.

All runs start at 9.30 hours. Dates and distances are as follows:

  • Sunday 28 July – 20K (12.4 miles)
  • Sunday 18 August – 25K (15.5 miles)
  • Sunday 8 September – 30K (18.6 miles)
  • Sunday 29 September – 30K/32K (18.6/20 miles)

You can sign up for one or more training runs without participation in the TCS Amsterdam Marathon, but you can also sign up for a complete marathon package. The fee for the whole marathon package is € 82.50. This package consists of:

  • A marathon ticket for the TCS Amsterdam Marathon
