Accessibility International Marathon Expo

Thursday 14, Friday 15 and Saturday 16 October


We recommend partipants to travel by public transport to the International Marathon Expo. See below the options to reach the Marathon Expo.
Location: Sporthallen Zuid, Burgerweeshuispad 54, 1076 EP Amsterdam. The OV-chipcard has been the only way to access the public transport in Amsterdam. If you still do not have an OV-chipcard, you can buy one at the GVB Tickets&Info locations, dispensers in the metro stations, or at www.gvb.nl. There are also a sales outlet outside the Marathon Expo. For more information: www.gvb.nl.

Bike
Are you coming to the TCS Amsterdam Marathon by bike? Then you can park your bike in the bicycle shed near the Na-Druk-Geluk Bridge (IJsbaanpad side).

Metro
The nearest Metro stops are Station Zuid and Amstelveenseweg (lines 50 and 51). The route to the Olympic Stadium and the Sporthallen Zuid sports complex is signposted from here. Check www.gvb.nl for the latest travel updates.

Train
The Olympic Stadium and Marathon Expo are both within walking distance of Amsterdam Zuid station. Just follow the signs. Make sure to check the NS Reisplanner for actual depart- and arrival times. On weekends, work is regularly done on the train track. The work on the train track can be viewed on the NS Reisplanner 10 days before the travel date. Check your trip again shortly before departure for the most up-to-date advice.

Are you coming from the direction of Flevoland, Utrecht, Leiden or Schiphol? Then travel by train to Amsterdam Zuid station. From there you continue with Metro 50 in the direction of 'Isolatorweg' (departs every 10 minutes). Get off at the 'Amstelveenseweg' stop. Or follow the walking route from Amsterdam Zuid station to the Olympic Stadium.

Are you coming from the direction of Rotterdam, The Hague, Alkmaar, Zaandam and Hoorn? Then travel to Amsterdam Sloterdijk Station. From there, take Metro 50 in the direction of 'Gaasperplas' (departs every 10 minutes). Get off at the 'Amstelveenseweg' stop.

Do not forget to bring your OV chip card with you with sufficient credit. Don't have an OV chip card yet? You can purchase a personal OV-chipkaart via NS.nl/ovchipkaart or buy an anonymous OV-chipkaart at the station. Avoid long waiting times at the ticket machine by charging your balance on time.

Tip: You can also buy your ticket online in advance, so you don't have to queue on the day itself. You can do this in the NS ticket shop. This prevents long queues at the machines.
