By bike:
We recommend that you do NOT cycle through the city center by hand because of the crowds. It is best to park your bicycle in one of the designated bicycle parking spaces:

  • Bicycle parking Wilminkplein
  • Station bicycle parking, North and West
  • Bicycle parking H.J. from Heekgarage
  • Bicycle parking Brammelerstraat

By car:
On the A35, take the Enschede-Zuid exit and follow the signs for Centrum. You can park there in the H.J. from Heekgarage West. You are directly below the start / finish area.

If you visit the Runnersbeurs or the registration office you can (paid) park in the immediate vicinity of Saxion or in one of the parking garages in the center. The distance from the Saxion to the start is approximately 1 km.

On Sunday April 24 we will be selling at the information booth at the H.J. van Heekplein a discount card for € 10 with which you can park for 24 hours. The discount card is valid at the following parking garages:

  • Van Heek garage
  • Stationsplein
  • Irene Garage
  • Brouwerij parking garage
  • Hermandad

Our advice is to initially park the car in the van Heekgarage because it is located under the start and finish area. Please note that other parking garages are also within walking distance of this area.

How to use the discount card? (also with multiple cards)

  1. Enter your discount cards at the payment machine. The cards are taken and the discount amount calculated.
  2. Then enter your parking ticket. This is the card that you received when entering the parking garage,
  3. The parking amount to be paid by you is debited and deducted from the discount amount.
  4. Any amount still to be paid serves you on the spot.
  5. After debiting or additional payment you must take the parking ticket from the machine. You can then present the card at the barrier at the exit. If the barrier
  6. opens automatically (license plate recognition), you do not have to offer the parking ticket. You can just finish.
  7. In the event of a malfunction, you can call on the parking management department via the intercom.
