Turn despair into power.
These participants ran against cancer in last years edition of the TCS Amsterdam Marathon. All with their own stories. Who are you running for?
"I decided to join Run Against Cancer when my mother's cancer suddenly returned after more than 10 years. In 2021 it turned out there was a tumor on her vertebra: a metastasis of the breast cancer from 2007. Unfortunately, the Utrecht marathon, in which I was supposed to run, was postponed. In return for my sponsors, I still ran the half marathon in March 2022. Not aware that I was actually already sick myself..."
Read Danique's (32) testimonial
"There are six majors in the marathon world: Boston, New York, Chicago, Berlin, London and Tokyo. My father, Stefan, ran the first four. Unfortunately, the last two never happened. It is my goal to run these majors for him before I reach the age of 30. To start my journey, I am running my first marathon in my hometown Amsterdam"

Experience Run against Cancer
Over 1.1 million euro's. That was on the cheque for the Cancer Center Amsterdam in 2023. An amazing contribution to ground-breaking cancer research. Raised by hundreds of Run Against Cancer participants during the TCS Amsterdam Marathon. "These amounts make exactly the difference for us," says Jan Paul Medema of Cancer Center Amsterdam, "it allows us to do this kind of research." Run against cancer champions: THANK YOU!
What do we run for?
More patients to benefit from new treatments
Participants in the TCS Amsterdam Marathon contribute to research at the Amsterdam UMC Cancer Center Amsterdam. For the edition of 2022 and 2023 the proceeds went to an important project to have more patient benefit from new treatment methods. To make that happen, they set up a large-scale research network. This way, more patients get earlier access to the latest treatments. We will inform you on this page about the research selected for 2024's edition.
