Km signs counting down at Marathon Eindhoven

14 juni 2017

This year, all participants in the Marathon Eindhoven will unconsciously receive additional support. For the first time in history, the organization places 42 km signs counting down along the route.

"After 195 meters, the first signs will be placed: '42 km to go '. Every kilometer is deducted and we hope to create a psychological benefit for the participants. It looks easier when you see the number continuously smaller instead of larger. In addition, on each board is a short motivational quote." So light director Edgar de Veer.

All events finish  on the Vestdijk. So that means that every runner will see the km signs. As many runners like to see the standard 5 km signs and times, they will be kept along the trails.
