Bib numbers Dutch participants
Due to the production time of the bib numbers, it is possible until September 26 to have your first name printed on the bib number and to fill in your expected end time. If you register before Monday September 27, you will receive your bib number at home. Anyone who registers after September 26, must pick up their bib number in het Beursgebouw on Saturday 9 or Sunday 10 October in the weekend of the Marathon Eindoven.
Bib numbers foreign participants
Participants who don’t live in the Netherlands can pick up their bib number in het Beursgebouw on Saturday 9 or Sunday 10 October.
Bib numbers for schools and businesses
For schools and businesses, is it possible to register until September 26. After that it’s no longer possible to register. The bib numbers of the schools and businesses will be sent to the contact person the week prior to the Marathon Eindhoven.
Fill in the medical passport
For your own safety you are strongly encouraged to complete the medical form on the back of the bib. This is very important as the information will help the organisers provide appropriate help in case of an emergency. You must wear your bib number on your chest.
We offer all individually registered participants the opportunity to transfer their starting ticket (including any additional products purchased) to someone else via our supply and demand platform. You can transfer your bib number to someone else by logging into your account and following the steps. Click here for the step-by-step plan for transferring a bib number. If you transfer your bib number after September 19, your name will not be visible on the startnumber, because it has already been printed. The bib number will be sent to the address of the original entrant, so you are responsible for the transfer of your bib number. Your name will be correct in the end results.
You can change the distance if the desired distance is not yet sold out. You can change to a higher distance with the condition that the difference in price is paid. If you change to a lower distance, there will be no refund of the registration fee (or an part of it).
How it works:
Note: Do you change your distance after September 12? Then come to the helpdesk on the day of the event to pick up a sticker that you need to attach to your bib number. This will allow you to start your new distance.

Format start waves
The layout of the start waves of the marathon and half marathon will be determined based on your given expected finishing time. In connection with the production of the bib numbers, it is possible to enter your expected finishing time until 12 September. After this, all participants are automatically assigned to the last start wave. Please note: it is then no longer possible to change your start wave or start time. You may start in a later start wave.
Please note: at the other distances there is one start and so there are no start waves. To promote the flow on the course, you are assigned to a start area that is stated on your bib number. It is no longer possible to change your starting area. Please make sure you are in your start wave at least 15-30 minutes before the start. Click here for more information on fast runners.
How to get to the event
Travel by public transport as much as possible. Eindhoven Central Station is easily accessible and is located near the various starting locations and the finish line. Keep in mind that many roads are closed and it will be very busy in the city.
Station Eindhoven Centraal is withing walking distance of the start and finish location. Participants and visitors can travel by train to this station on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 October. Due to the expected crowds, please allow for extra travel time. Plan your trip before you leave and check the latest information on www.9292ov.nl.
Due to the preparatory work and the execution of the event, various bus lines will not run or will run according to a different timetable. To be well prepared, plan your trip on www.hermes.nl.
We advise all participants and spectators to travel by public transport as much as possible. If you know people in your area who are also going to walk or go to Eindhoven, try to ride with each other. It is cozier, saves costs and is environmentally friendly. Some parking garages in and around the center of Eindhoven are not accessible, or have limited accessibility around Marathon Eindhoven. In the run-up to the event, we will publish an overview of parking garages that are accessible.
The best way to reach the city is by bicycle. You can park your bicycle at the designated locations. On this page you will find an overview of all bicycle parking facilities in Eindhoven.
We do not want to fail to apologize in advance for any inconvenience caused by the temporary closures on Saturday 9 and Sunday 10 October and thank you in advance for your cooperation and understanding. The road closures and crossings will be published in the run-up to the event. The Municipality of Eindhoven has developed a live route planner that displays the current closures of an event. Just like last year, all barriers and crossing points of the various courses, linked to the exact times, have been processed. Click here for the route planner. Note: make sure you set the correct date via 'route options'.
The Eindhoven Marathon will experience its 37th edition on Sunday 10 October. After the government announced to let go of the one and a half meter rule as of September 25, the municipality of Eindhoven has given the green light to organize this popular event. Together with the security services and the municipality of Eindhoven, the final adjustments are being made so that an extension of the license can follow.Read more
