A pleasant 800 meters course has been set out throught the Olympic Quarter. Did you know that all the street names in this neighborhood are named after Greek goddesses? Parents can stand all along the course to encourage the kids. For children aged 4, 5 and 6 (last starting section), parents are allowed to run along. If you are older, your parents may take you to the start area and pick you up at the finish.

Finish and medal

The finish is on the Afroditekade, where you will receive your well-deserved medal. You can finish until 10.45 hours.

Children's party

Once you'hve finished running, there are lot more fun things to do. You can have your face painted or jump on the bouncy castles. There will also be a children's disco.

Do you also want to encourage the top athletes in the Olympic Stadium before or after the Kids Run? Then you are most welcome at the special Kids Run Fan Zone! Cheer your favorite to the finish. The first top athletes will cross the finish line around 11.00 hours. And maybe you'll see who will be the new Dutch Champion for the marathon? Access is from grandstand I/J, accessible from the Kids Square (Cruyff Court).


In Amsterdam, 1 out of 5 kids grows up living below the poverty line with insufficient economic resources. This means that approximately 30.000 children in Amsterdam do not have access to the opportunities that their more fortunate peers may take for granted, for example, participating in organized sports. Jeugdfonds Sport Amsterdam pays the membership fees for a child from a low-income family directly to the sports association. Requests can be send to one of the 1100 intermediaries in Amsterdam.

This year Jeugdfonds Sport and Le Champion are teaming up in order to get more children involved in sports in Amsterdam. Our mission on October the 15th: get Amsterdam kids moving! We are already looking forward to see those happy faces and running children during the Mini Marathons.
