The Rotterdam Marathon : What Is It All About?

Rotterdam Marathon

A marathon is basically a long-distance race with an official distance of 42 km, also measurable as 26 miles. It is usually a road race. The event was basically instituted in commemoration of a greek soldier. A marathon can be completed by either running or walking. There are wheelchair divisions available as well. The marathon was one of the original modern Olympic events in the year 1896. It did not get standardised until the year 1921.

The Rotterdam Marathon is actually branded NN Rotterdam Marathon, and it is an annual marathon that takes place in the Netherlands every single year ever since 1981. It has been held in the month of April, every single year. It also has been ranked as one of the top 10 marathons in the entire world by Runners World Magazine. This event is incredibly popular, and it is much loved in Amsterdam. The start date was April, since the year 1983. It takes place on the roads of Amsterdam. It also covers a distance of 42.195 km. In the year of 2019, there were 14,554 participants who gladly came out for the marathon.

I feel that marathon running is absolutely amazing when it comes to getting fit and doing something that you love. I am sure you know that people run a marathon for a multitude of reasons. There are a lot of marathons that are held, which end up contributing a lot of money to children’s hospitals, cancer research, steps of research and more. The Rotterdam Marathon often produces a lot of money.

In the year 2007, the event was actually stopped after 3 1/2 hours, because of horrible weather conditions. It was unseasonable the day of the race. The temperature is reached very high, as high as 34°C. The runners who were on the course actually stopped running after that point, because of horrible weather conditions, which were scorching.
In the year 2020, the race was actually postponed to the year 2021, because of the COVID-19 pandemic and also because marathons bring people together. People did not have any option but to stay in their homes. Social distancing measures prevented from the marathon happening. All of the entries automatically remain valid for the year 2021, and the people who had registered for it had to do nothing when it comes to transferring their entry into the year 2021.

In the year 2012, the IAAF Gold label was actually awarded to the event, because it satisfied the last condition in the month of April that year. The requirement of the race could actually be followed on a live television, in at least five countries.
