Amsterdam is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, and the TCS Amsterdam Marathon allows runners to take in all of the major sights on a flat, fast and scenic course.

Over 16,500 runners take part in the race each year which starts and finishes in the historic Olympic Stadium.  Along the course, runners will go along the Amsel River and through the Rijksmuseum and Vondelpark.  You'll also be sure to pass a few canals, windmills and pancake houses!

Amsterdam provides the perfect opportunity for UK runners to take on a destination marathon that is in a city which is easily accessible and full of culture!

When Jo was admitted to hospital for emergency surgery 29 weeks into her pregnancy, nobody knew what the outcome would be for mother or baby. Thankfully, Jo and husband Will are now the proud parents of Samuel, who survived being born at just 30 weeks.

“For my family it was a hugely stressful time,” Jo says. “No-one knew what would happen to the baby. I was in a lot of pain so they were very concerned for me, too.”
