Every year this leaves an unforgettable impression, thanks to the presence of the supporters in the tribunes and the marathon grandstand! The course of the Marathon follows a part of the course of the Olympic Games in 1928 alongside the Amstel River, stately mansions and windmills. This rural trail offers beautiful views and gives an impression of the enormous activity that rules the Amstel every day.
