After the break last year, marathons were finally run again in Eindhoven.

Along with the marathons in Amsterdam, Rotterdam and Enschede, the "Marathon Eindhoven" is one of the best known and largest marathons in the Netherlands.

Unrestricted participation in the Eindhoven Marathon

Since 1990, the Eindhoven Marathon has been held annually without interruption until 2020, when the pandemic put a stop to the event. On October 10, 2021, the marathon made its comeback. Fortunately, unlike other countries such as Austria or Germany, there are no absurd rules in the Netherlands that currently allow only people who have been vaccinated against Covid-19 or have recovered to participate in running events. At the Marathon Eindhoven, everyone was allowed to participate and without any conditions at all.

Half marathon race with largest number of participants

Every year, the event attracts more than 20,000 participants, although the marathon, with around 2,000 starters, is not the event's main draw. This is because the half marathon race is much more crowded with over 7,000 athletes.

2 days of great running program

The sportive weekend was already opened on Saturday with the Progging Run, the walking competitions over 18 km and 12 km as well as the Marathon Challenge.

On Sunday at 9:30 a.m. the second sports day started with the Mini Marathon. 15 minutes later followed the AON City Run over 5 km and finally at 10 o'clock the starting signal for the Marathon. Shortly thereafter, the participants of the 10-kilometer event were also allowed to start their race. At 14:00 o'clock the half marathon runners had to wait. The marathon started in Mathildelaan, the half marathon in Montgomerylaan.

Fast marathon course in Eindhoven

The course has potential for best times, as the course records of 2:05:46 hours (2012 by Kenyan Dickson Kiptolo Chumba) and 2:24:33 hours (2011 by Kenyan Georgina Rono) prove. In the last edition two years ago, athletes from Kenya were also successful in Eindhoven with Laban Mutai (2:06:49 hours) and Betty Chepleting (2:28.43 hours).
