Event Information:

Watch the Amsterdam marathon live stream. The Amsterdam Marathon is an annual marathon race over the classic distance of 42.195km held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands since 1975. It is one of the top ten marathons in the world. The first marathon in Amsterdam was held on August 5, 1928, during the 1928 Summer Olympics. It was won by Boughera El Ouafi in 2:32:57.

After the Olympics there were no marathons in Amsterdam until 1975. Since that year the marathon was held annually, with the exception of 1978. The 1980 course record of 2:09:01 ran by Dutchman Gerard Nijboer could be considered an unofficial world record as the generally recognized record at that time, 2:08:34 in Antwerp, had been run on a course that was 500 meters short.

In 2005, the current world record holder on the marathon, Haile Gebrselassie earned his first win in the Amsterdam Marathon in the fastest marathon time in the world for the 2006 season (2:06.20). In 2010, Getu Feleke finished in 2:05:44, which is the best time ever in Amsterdam. The route starts and finishes in the Olympic Stadium. The course is flat, with a maximum elevation of 33ft at the 23rd mile
