Highlights

Beer, wool and tobacco made Amersfoort an exceedingly rich town from the 16th century onwards. Well-heeled with a touch of the provincial, it has many striking merchants' homes that have been lovingly restored, and the egg-shaped old town offers quiet, wonderfully evocative strolls along canals and narrow alleys that retain their medieval mystery.

Amersfoort makes for a good break on a train journey to/from Friesland or Groningen. You can take an interesting hour-long stroll and then stop for a good meal.

Overview

The marathon course consists of two rounds of 21,1km. The half marathon runners will do the same course of 21,1km and will finish directly at the Eemplein after one full round. The marathon athletes will then have to run another round of 21,1km.

There is another route for the 10km runners and 5km runners.
