General questions

When does the Half Marathon Rotterdam take place?

This years’ edition takes place on July 31st 2022.

How much is the registration fee?

We do not charge an entry fee for the Half Marathon Rotterdam. You can Run against cancer in two ways:

1) Register and raise a minimum of 500 euro. Then you will receive a entry ticket from KWF and a unique Run Against Cancer T-shirt. You have until June 24th to raise 500 euros in sponsorship money. After that, you cannot get a free ticket through us anymore and you have to buy your ticket yourself through the organization of the Half Marathon Rotterdam. So the sooner you have the minimum amount together, the better!

2) ) Buy your own ticket for the Half Marathon Rotterdam and create a Run Against Cancer fundraising page. There is no minimum sponsorship amount that we ask from you. If you do raise more than 500 euro, you will be rewarded with our unique Run Against Cancer-shirt!

When will we receive the schedule and all the information about the day itself?

This information will be emailed up to 1.5 weeks in advance. Participants will also receive general information from the organization itself. The information we send you is leading.

Can someone else run for me when I unexpectedly cannot?

Yes, you can. However, if it is shortly before the event, it may not be possible to change the name on the entry ticket. Please contact Patricia about this at
