It is possible to run a half marathon! The marathon course lends itself well to the half marathon in a practical sense, which will also cover 21.1 km on a part of the marathon course.

Finish: Stadshart Amstelveen

Athletics Association Startbaan is known for its annual, national relay race. This can not be missed at the Amstelveen Lentemarathon! The relay teams of four runners use the same course of the marathon, with the first, second and last runners of each team traveling about ten kilometers and the third runner about 12 km.

The relay team will have to transfer an object from start to finish and is responsible for the change. At the points of exchange, the necessary logistics will be available, so that these runners are well prepared to start the race.

Other information

Send and pick up the starting number / shirt at Runnersworld Amsterdamse Bos

When registering you can choose whether your starting 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 20 March (12:00) to Saturday 23 March (13:00). On the morning of the game on Sunday 24 March there will be a counter at AV Startbaan between 08:00 and 11:15 for the other numbers and shirts. Given the expected crowds, 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 € 17.50 for as long as supplies last.


Parking / accessibility

There is limited parking nearby, we advise to get as much as possible by bike or use public transport. From Amsterdam South 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.

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


Shuttle service

In addition to the regular tram and bus transport, a small shuttle will be set up. These are three vans that will run between finish (Stadshart at the ING office, Amstelveen) and start (AV Startbaan, Amstelveen).

Note: these vans do NOT drive the relay route. The participants of the relay race are responsible for transport to and from the relay starting points


Clothing intake / transportation

Before the start of the race one bag can be handed in at the clothing collection point on AV runway. Please note that no clothing can remain in the locker rooms as they are closed after the start of the half marathon.

There is a label on your starting number which you can attach to your bag (one bag per person). This bag is taken to the Stadshart, where it can be picked up again at pop podium P60 (on presentation of your race number).


Changing rooms

Dressing rooms are only available at the start location, but they are no longer open after the start of the half marathon. So no items can be left behind.


Traffic

The competition takes place on the public road. This obviously means that we as runners must respect the traffic rules. At dangerous traffic points on the route, professional traffic attendants are used for the safest possible crossing.


Time registration / results

Time registration is provided by Racetimer.
The results and finish photos are available on our website afterwards.


Photos and video

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


Beverage stations

There is a water station arranged every 5 km and from the third water station (marathon) there is also sports drink and bananas in addition to water.


Finish

Every finisher receives a medal and water and some food.
There is catering available and there is first aid in P60. Fysio Troelstralaan is ready for you to massage the stiff muscles.
