Important: always run with your own start number!
Your start number is linked to your name and your medical data. In case of medical emergencies, in which the runner is unresponsive, the data on the back of the start numbers will be used. It is therefore very important that this data is correct and that you run with your own start number! Read more.
Each participant gets a medal after they finish. Make your medal an unique and personal souvenir by engraving your medal with your name and finish time.
The costs for engraving are €6,50 (at pre-registration) and €8,00 (on the day of the marathon). You only need to mark ‘engraving medal’ at the pre-registration. Immediately after the finish, at the H.J. van Heekplein, you can engrave your medal at the stand. On the day itself it is also possible to engrave the medal for the KidsRUN.
