Rotterdam Marathon & ¼ Marathon + Amsterdam & Tulip Time

Rotterdam is a historic yet very modern city. Being left in ruins after WWII, Rotterdam is interesting in that it has amazingly modern architecture for a European city. You will see it first hand as you run the ¼ marathon or the full marathon. The full marathon starts at the foot of the iconic Erasmus Bridge and ends along the Coolsingel, a very famous street in Rotterdam. Rotterdam also hosts one of the fastest marathons to be had. Looking for a PR or BQ? Look no further! Not only does the race deliver excitement, but all of the locals are very involved in the race and supporting the runners, so this is a race where you can really feel a part of the city and the people.

After the race and enjoying what Rotterdam has to offer, we will move on to Amsterdam and further our exploration of the lovely country of the Netherlands. We will enjoy the food scene, shopping, private tours and events and the general laid back life and attitude that is Amsterdam. We have come to truly love this city and its people!

Great Bruges Marathon & Half Marathon Run/Walk

Retaining the mysteries of the Middle Ages and unashamedly exuberant, Bruges has been an international metropolis for centuries. Participating in the Great Bruges Marathon is your opportunity to be part of this inspirational journey.

Start & finish are located in the heart of the historical city center. First, the race course will take participants for a sightseeing tour through the old town. The second portion of the race will lead all the way to the beautiful Belgian Coast and back to ultimately finish on the famous ‘Grote Markt’.

During the event, participants will be able to enjoy the best features Bruges has to offer and tons of animations along the course.  Besides an official full marathon, there will also be a timed half marathon race. Great feature: both distances will also be open to walkers.
