Parking / accessibility

There is limited parking nearby, we advise to get as much as possible by bike or use public transport. From Amsterdam Zuid bus 348 goes to Uithoorn (every 30 min), get off at the Startbaan stop, 2 minutes walk from our athletics track. An alternative is tram 5 from Station Zuid to Amstelveen Stadshart, where bus 347 from the Amstelveen bus station heads towards Uithoorn (every 15 min), get off at the Startbaan stop. Be aware that Metro 51 does not drive anymore.

Around the complex of AV Startbaan there is modest space for parking. The regular parking space for high school HWC is available.

Photos and video

Photos and a video are made, these will be made available later on our website.

Pick up the bib number / shirt

When registering you can choose whether your bib number would be sent home (shirts are not sent). If you have not chosen this, you can pick up your race number and / or shirt at Runnersworld Amsterdamse Bos (Amsterdamseweg 507 in Amstelveen). This is possible from Wednesday 18 March (12:00) to Saturday 21 March (13:00).
On the morning of the race on Sunday 22 March there will be a counter at AV Startbaan between 08:00 and 11:15 for the remaining numbers and shirts. We recommend to pick up the number and shirt as much as possible in advance, so that you can start the race without stress! Have you not ordered a shirt yet and are you already sorry? At the athletics club you can purchase this for € 20.00 for as long as supplies last.
