About Marathon Eindhoven

The Marathon Eindhoven has been the largest one-day sports event of the province of North Brabant for many years now. The main part of the day is, of course, the marathon distance. For many years the flat, wide and atmospheric course has resulted in fast finishing times and very good ratings from our participants.

The Marathon Eindhoven is famous for its fast and even courses and enthusiastic support from the spectators. The fifty different music locations of the Marathon festival make a significant contribution to the renowned ‘cosy’ atmosphere in the city. The various courses all have their finishes on the Vestdijk at Hotel Pullman Cocagne and run across the Markt, Catharinaplein, Stratumseind and Geldropseweg. Traditional locations with vast crowds.

A mere village in 1900, Eindhoven grew exponentially thanks to electronics giant Philips, founded here in 1891, to become the Netherlands' fifth-largest city. During the 1990s, Philips moved to Amsterdam, but Eindhoven remains a centre of high-tech research and industry with a top technology institute, and is a magnet for 'knowledge workers' from abroad. Due in part to the presence of all the brainiacs, Eindhoven fairly buzzes with cultural activity, much of which revolves around the renovated shell of the former Philips complex. The Dutch Design Academy is ensconced in the ex-Philips lamp factory (locally known as the 'White Lady'), and Dutch Design Week is a major event held here in October. But it is perhaps best known to frugal travelers for the many budget carriers serving its airport, and early departures are reason enough to overnight it here.


To respond to the wishes of our participants even better, we will be introducing a new one-round course this year which runs along the most characteristic locations of Eindhoven! Locations along the new course include the Evoluon, Philips Stadion, the High Tech Campus, Strijp-S, the Stratumseind and the city centre. Of course, this new course is completely free of traffic, flat, good to run on and very atmospheric
