No fewer than three world records have been broken here in the past. I bumped into about 5 or 6 runners and saw one runner fall to the ground and almost fell over him. The finish is situated on the vibrant Coolsingel. You could hear the roar of the crowd approaching the finish line, even 3 hours after the winner was done. The course is flat like pancake and the energy from the spectators is unbelievable. Refreshment stations: All care stands along the course provide sports drinks and water. I was not planning to run the race entirely but the crowd gave me the energy and focus to finish.

Anyway this race does not make me want to it again. That's all which was pretty disappointing. Organization was great but I took one star away because my wave had no room left in it and I had to wait for them to move turned out not to be a big deal and also I am blaming the organization for having such narrow course. My third best time-but my favorite race. The crowd in Rotterdam is amazing close to 1 million great experience. There were countless volunteers making sure that everyone got what they needed in stride.

If it were not because of the spectators that were tirelessly chanting and calling your name, gave you their own drinks when you need it and when there were no drink stations in sight, helped you when you barely can run, probably I would not have finished the race.

I absolutely recommend running the Rotterdam marathon, it is not considered a major marathon, but still has everythig on the same level or even better as the major European marathons do. Water stops were insanely long, which prevented everyone bunching up to get a drink.

I chose this one as my first because I only need to walk 10 minutes from my house to the start line. Check out the comprehensive selection and book your perfect holiday here! Organization was excellent, expo quite big, which made the whole experience even better. The only time I have seen better support is at the Comrades marathon. A lot of this is owed to the fact that the marathon organizers put out a handy guide for spectators showing which public transport stops matched to areas of the course.
