Sweat, Tears and Blisters

NN Marathon Rotterdam

The most vibrant event in the city is definitely the Rotterdam Marathon. Professional athletes and amateurs, young and old, men and women, national and international, all run the 42.2km route through the city together. Traversing bridges, parks and streets: friends, family, neighbours, musicians and just about everyone that passes by flock to the streets to cheer them on. Participants wear name tags, so get as close to the finish line as you can and join the supporters to enjoy this magical sporting event yourself!
