Eighth Ladies Run with record number of participants a great successIn 2007, the first Ladies Run Rotterdam had 1800 entries. In the highly successful eighth Run on Sunday 1 June, there were more than seven times as many: over 13,000. Next year we expect to see more than 15,000 runners, making our Ladies Run not only the best and the most fun but also the biggest in the country.
A wonderful celebration from start to finishThe 34th ABN AMRO Marathon Rotterdam was a celebration from start to finish. With 13,500 marathon runners from 76 countries, and (on Saturday and Sunday) 35,000 participants in total – a record! They all crossed the finish in a variety of ways. Laughing, cheering, crying with joy.
Exuberant Coolsingel cheers Eliud Kipchoge, Khalid Choukoud and all the other ‘winners’Eliud Kipchoge couldn’t get enough of his ‘lap of honour’. Debutant Khalid Choukoud was also keen to share his joy with the enthusiastic crowd. Goose bumps. The spectators on the heaving Coolsingel really enjoyed the two heroes of the 34th ABN AMRO Marathon Rotterdam.
