TCS Amsterdam Marathon
On Sunday, October 15, 2023, the 47th edition of the TCS Amsterdam Marathon will take place. This international marathon is known for its flat and attractive course with many highlights through our capital. In addition to the classic distance, the program includes the Mizuno Half Marathon and TCS 8 km. All parts finish in the historic Olympic Stadium. Run against cancer and for life during the TCS Amsterdam Marathon!
Who do you run for?
1 in 3 Dutch people get cancer. Whether you have it yourself. Or someone you care about. Cancer unbalances your life.
Turn despair into power.
These participants ran against cancer during the TCS Amsterdam Marathon in 2022. All with a story of their own. Who are you running for?
"The wedding was planned. We had finally found our dream house. I started a new job. And then suddenly this phone call came, bringing everything to a stop at once."

""My daughter was right to say, 'surely it's unfair that the kind of cancer grandma has is not being studied. It's like these patients don't matter.' That's the change I want to run for!"

Aftermovie TCS Amsterdam Marathon 2022
Almost 700,000 euros. That was on the cheque for the Cancer Center Amsterdam. Your contribution to ground-breaking cancer research. Raised by 1100 Run Against Cancer participants during the TCS Amsterdam Marathon 2022. "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. A lot of cancer research takes place at this renowned institute. The centre wants as many patients as possible to benefit from their innovative treatments. Not only in academic hospitals, but also in regional hospitals. Therefore, they set up a large-scale research network. This way, more patients get earlier access to the latest treatments.
