Eindhoven Marathon is a genuine City Marathon. The route of the long walk leads through the town of Eindhoven. After the start of the town trail runs North towards Woensel. From this area the trail runs west through the Strijp district where Oirschotsedijk leads through a wooded part of Eindhoven. The following is a passage through several old buildings, Philips and Philips Stadium, before the city is reached where the finish line is situated. The route is 21.1 kilometres long, runners in the marathon should be run to two rounds.
There are several ways to reach the trail if you want to encourage a runner or if you just want to be present as a spectator.
P because of the large number of visitors, it is in the Centre of Eindhoven very busy during the event.Due to this haste it is recommended to use public transport. This could very well be used as the main station Eindhoven Beukenlaan because both stations are close to the road.
Eindhoven is perfectly accessible via several highways. During the event, but believe that parts of the inner city are difficult or impossible to reach. The parking spaces that are not easily accessible has to do with a rush so there may be some vacancies anymore.
